Blake Griffin‘s had some memorable dunks in his young NBA career, but he may have topped them all against the Oklahoma City Thunder late Monday night.
Griffin took a feed from point guard Chris Paul and rose up, posterizing Thunder center — and former Celtics big man — Kendrick Perkins. The dunk drew a wild response from the L.A. crowd, but the reaction on Twitter was even crazier.
In fact, the dunk was so emphatic, so nasty and so unheard of that LeBron James willingly handed overthe top spot on the SportsCenter Top 10 list which James had earned earlier in the night.
“Dunk of the Year!! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!! Wow!! I guess I’m #2 now. Move over #6,” James tweeted.
