In recent weeks.. Blake Griffin, Ralph Lawler, Assistant Marc Ivaroni and trainer Jason Powell have all said Blake is around a 40-42 inch max vert with a running start. I believe it.. do you guys?

That's why you put your hand on the backboard to ensure that doesn't happen (not from that angle of course)...

A la Dwight Howard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rmo6ds6JcA

Yeah...you must've been watching the vid without sound. One of the commentators says, "Thank goodness there's some padding there". It still had to hurt, though.

But man, Blake is a freak. I don't think he pushed off Tolliver all that much. He probably would have hit his head anyway. This kid is going to be a lot of fun to watch over his career. And so far he seems pretty likable; even to non-Clipper fans. Does anyone dislike this guy yet?

I've seen him miss the backboard with his head many times, not surprised he finally did it to himself.
