Blake Griffin’s Dunk Over Kendrick Perkins or Over Timofey Mosgov…Which Was Better? [Video]

When I woke up this morning and popped on the TV, the first thing I heard was, “Twitter it exploded last night! Find out why next.”

My first thought was that Rob Lowe had said something provocative. Then I had an awful thought that maybe someone had gotten injured, sick, or worse…but I immediately was reassured by the tone of voice of the speaker.

No, this wasn’t a negative Twitter explosion. It was a jubilant.

And then I found out why.

And oh me, oh my.

Blake Griffin was the reason for the Twitter explosion, and as soon as I saw the monstrous and absurdly athletic “dunk” he threw down on Kendrick Perkins I knew why. Watch the video if you, like me, didn’t see it last night:


The reason I put dunk in quotation marks above is because it almost looks like Griffin’s hand doesn’t touch the rim. You can see the ball slipping out as his arm comes down towards the rim. It’s more of a “throw down” than a dunk.


Although, in the postgame interview, Griffin said that his hand did touch the rim this time, unlike in past spectacular slams. Not that it matters. It’s breathtaking either way.

And one spectacular slam in particular that he is referring to is Griffin’s famous throw down over Timofey Mosgov of the Knicks.

In case you’ve forgotten, watch the video below. I promise it’s a different video than the one above.


It’s incredible how similar the dunks are. Both are perfect showcases for Griffin’s scintillating blend of athleticism and power. But is one better than the other?

Chime in.
