2010-11 NBA Season | Blake Griffin’s Ridiculous Poster DunkCategory: Basketball
Selected by the LA Clippers as the first pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, Blake Griffin’s rookie campaign was put on hold when he broke his left kneecap during the Clippers’ final exhibition game against New Orleans.
Finally healthy, Griffin showed why he was a no-brainer as a top pick when he started showcasing his skills at the preseason averaging 17.11 ppg and 12.22 rpg and providing highlight reel dunks.
In his first official game as a rookie (yes, he is still a rookie as he failed to play a single game last year), he announced his arrival scoring on an alley-oop dunk for his first NBA basket. He finished with 20 points and 14 rebounds.
Fourteen games into his rookie year (as of this writing), Griffin is making a run for Dominique Wilkins nickname as the “Human Highlight Film” as he has been constantly wowing fans with his amazing dunks helped in large part to his excellent leaping ability.
(UPDATE January 15, 2010: Blake Griffin finally has a nickname: High Griffinition!)
In a game against the New York Knicks today, Griffin scored a career high 44 points and dished out a career high 7 assists and added 15 rebounds. His team the LA Clippers might have lost 115-124 but one of his dunks in the game is going to be the talk of the league for years to come. Heck, it will surely be included in many future NBA highlights reels.
The victim was Russian rookie Timofey Mozgov.
