TOP 10 BLAKE GRIFFIN DUNKS
In choosing the top 10, several were eliminated that could have easily made it. Griffin’s two-handed alley oop on Sunday against the Hornets, for example, where his eyes are near even with the bottom of the backboard, did not make the cut. Neither did his dunk against the Bucks, where he leaped over a stumbling Ersan Ilyasova. Or his flying tomahawk off a between-the-legs pass from Chris Paul, Griffin’s dunk muse, in the All-Star Game. For anyone else, those three highlights would have been cinches for the first five, but not when we’re talking about Blake Griffin.
Note: To compile the list, I considered degree of difficulty, magnitude, in-game situation, crowd reaction, and, of course, style.
