In arguably the best dunk competition of the last 10 years, Blake Griffin put on a show and walked away with the trophy. As the lone rookie in the competition he had the crowd buzzing from the introduction on, and hype man/coach Kenny Smith did his best to keep everyone fired up. While not everyone thought Blake deserved the win, it was touching that he dedicated his victory to a teammate who recently passed away. Check out video of the dunks below.
Personally, I thought the best dunk Blake put down was his first, a violent 360 that was different than anything I’ve ever seen.
The second dunk Blake put down again had the crowd on their feet. This time he enlisted the help of teammate Baron Davis, who lobbed one off the side of the backboard while Blake attempted another 360. After failing a few times, because of a couple bad tosses, Blake finally threw it down hard with one hand.
For his first dunk in the finals, Blake did his best Vince Carter impression, putting his arm through the rim after lobbing off the backboard. There’s no video available for this because people were still probably still upset that Serge Ibaka didn’t advance despite having the only true “foul-line” dunk.
As a finale, the famous car dunk. Basically this is like jumping over Spud Webb, if Spud was made of steel and had Baron Davis hiding inside. Oh, and there was a choir.
