someone else made a thread of this and a mod almost immediately moved it to the youtube thread which i thought was pretty lame.

definitely one of the best in-game dunks ever.

this deserves its own thread. hopefully they leave it. with all the other stupid threads people make over and over that are about the same player or team, this one should be left.

I really hope that for my generation of watchin hoops didn't come off as this annoying and naive to the older generations like dr j early jordan type eras..cuz ever since around 2006 about it s jus gone downhill to me an the childs overeact to every lebron or griffin dunk..sick *** dunk. Loved it. But iv seen better vince tmac kobe jordan pippen..and even garnett dunks than this

Blake may someday be as good or better than Pipp, but Perkins is not Ewing.

Big time facial, not the best.

Griffin's dunk tonight was awesome! Still though, Vince Carter over the French dude is the best dunk I've ever seen.

I think it is hard to make a judgment so quickly. I do think that it will go down as one of the greats though.

Jordan over Ewing was awesome. As was Dr J in the Finals.

Yo, That Blake Griffin Dunk is the best I have ever seen easily better than that vince dunk where he dunks on some nobody and uses his shoulders for more lift.

Considering it was against the best team in the NBA and Perkins is known as being a great defender ---- Griffin just changed the game

Griffin is certainly electric, but you don't have to get rosy color goggles to realize that Vince Carter made posters of some of the greatest shot blockers in NBA history. Hell, he has even done it to Perkins....

I love Blake Griffin, but in all honesty...this wasnt a dunk. Look closely and he got maybe an inch of a finger on the rim. (Same as dwight in the Dunk contest). He just threw it in really. Nasty "shot" though. LeBron's was much better because he jumped over John Lucas and dunked it one handed. Its incredibly hard to just catch a ball in mid-air one handed let alone catch it over a player and dunk it.

This. Lebron head was above the rim when he caught the oop. Lebron dunked over a '6 0' footer while catching an alley by the side of the basket. Blake should try that in the dunk contest this year instead of jumping over the bumper of a car.

Amazing dunk. Made Perkins look salty as hell. But I call foul because he got leverage on Perkins with the left arm. He was inside the circle but I've seen offensive fouls called in the circle when it's obvious. Having said that, it was still the dunk of the year

Not even close to being the best... I can think of 5 vince carter dunks that are better, and I haven't even mentioned a fellow named Jordan yet, who own's the second greatest dunk of all time (over Patrick Ewing). However, Blake is really awesome for the league, and I enjoy watching him play..

If Blake would have finished that dunk ferociously at the rim it would have been better. I'm being a little harsh though. It was still quite good.

Not even close to the best dunk ever. Shawn Kemp did that several times in his career, years ago. There are several other players that had many better dunks in their career.

Still an amazing and nasty dunk in Perks face. The over-reaction gets old though.

i dont know if i would even consider this a dunk tho, he just throws the balll at the rim as hard as he can he doesnt finish... lebrons dunk that never was from a few years ago was much sicker in my opinion http://youtu.be/1z4H9UklTQM

it wasn't that clear. i didn't see hand on rim until the slow motion replays, and even then it was more fingertips on rim than hand.
but definitely moreso than his mosgov dunk in which no part of his hand touches rim. blake even admitted himself that mosgov wasn't a dunk.

it was an awesome dunk especially since it was over Perkins, but not the best ever. i personally think the one in my sig (Pippen over Ewing) is the best ever. and what even made it better was that Pippen taunted the hell out of Ewing by giving him a little shove and then walking over him haha. in todays NBA, youd get T'd up in a second if you did that

Sorry but that VC dunk never impressed me, the guy ducked to get out of the way, if you like this then jumping over a KIA in the dunk contest must have been the 2nd best dunk ever. I wouldn't say Griffin's dunk was the best ever but getting fouled by perk, stretching out and dunking that was 10x more impressive than the VC dunk you posted.

seriously?

lebron crept up behind someone who is under 6ft and hopped over them for an alley. if the guy wasnt standing there, lebron would have been able to do it still. He had NO defensive pressure. Im not saying the dunk wasnt top 5 of this season, im saying its definitley not as impressive as Blake's.

Blake had Perkins (almost 7ft and like 300lbs) in his face and he went straight at him and THROUGH him. He jumps much higher than lebron had to jump and he frikkin made people go :speechless::speechless::speechless:

Hm. If you watch closely, Weiss sets up to take a charge (you see him set his feet, and put his arms across his chest) then realizes at the last second that his mouth will have a teabag in it shortly, THEN he ducks. And if you're using "stretching out" as a category, then VC did the same as well. 7 feet man!

Griffin over the KIA was one of the worst dunk contest dunks, especially if you consider the amount of production that went into it to the ratio of the actual degree of difficulty. In fact, he probably jumped from further and higher on this Perkins dunk than in the KIA one.

The degree of sheer physicality needed for this Griffin dunk is tough to question, but on overall degree of difficulty, athleticism, etc., it's not quite up there in the all-time rankings.

it might just be my style..but I like over 10 posterizations more than this...if you watch the replay from other angles it isnt as impressive to me, he just threw it in and didnt stay on Perk.
I dig Griffin a lot, exciting dude, but here's like a few I like by a far marign better..dead serious

VC olympic dunk, Tmac on Kirlinko, Pippen on Ewing, Bdavis in playoffs, VC on Duncan/Zo/Mutombo, Kobe on Dwight.
even Dwade's on Perks was smoother. I must just not like throw ins.

I saw the thread but I have a legitimate question that I think needs some critical thinking..

I went to the first page of the other thread and everyone was pointing out how this is one of the best dunks ever and so on and so forth..

But was it really a dunk?? It was a great athletic play but IMHO I think it was more of a throw into the basket than a dunk.

If you look at the replay real slowly only 1 of his fingers really touches the rim?

If someone else had a play like that would everyone be freaking out still??

I don't know. I just don't think that 'dunk' deserves all the attention it is getting.

This is the most false statement I have ever read.

Do you think if I went up and lost the ball but still touched the rim and then the ball fell through you would say I dunked it??

A dunk is in sync. The ball clearly went into the hoop and then Griffins finger touched it afterwards as his arm was coming down since he got so high.

I didn't think so. One of the greatest shows of athleticism you will ever see...who cares if his hand hit the rim or not.

Consider this... if he had done the same exact thing without Perk there it probably would have still be one the best dunks of the year... but that wasn't enough. He proceeded to jump 40+ inches off the ground despite running into a 280 pound man. ABSURD.

Admire the play. Don't dissect it. Just admire...

Here is the difference between a dunk and layup as far as I am concerned:

This was a sick play, no doubt, but I'm just not sure how it can be called a dunk when the ball is thrown in the hoop? The ball doesn't stay in his hand as he gets to the rim, it's tossed in. This is similar to the superman "dunk" that dwight howard did in the dunk contest that everyone was blown away by except that Blake was closer to the rim when he threw it in.

young eastwood
01-31-2012, 03:37 PM
He did, but the definition of a dunk has been questioned since "Superman" and Mosgov. i still i think its a dunk either way if he touched it or not. everyone expects you to pull the rim down on dunks you dont need too. if you jump way above the rim and through the ball down throw the basket it should always be considered a dunk. its not a lay up. what you wanna call it a lay down. as someone who can dunk to do its the same exact thing but way harder.

Griffin had to contend with a decent size hand pushing his face away while in the air. I thin it's funny you guys are saying young fans haven't see ****. I'm old and i have to say this is one of the most physical athletic dunks i've ever seen. Jordan and VC couldn't handle a man like perkins pushing there face like that and still finish.

And to top it off that wasn't even a dunk by Blake. He threw the ball at the hoop and UNINTENTIONALLY hit the rim with 2 fingers for a split second. When good dunkers dunk over big guys they FINISH non of this "Oh damn I can't get over this guy who is like 2 inches taller than me"

Or...

We have seen better dunks. I am a huge Griffin fan, but I wouldn't call that one of the top dunks I have seen.

It is easy to remember dunks from this year or last year. Especially with the media that surrounds sports now. It is more difficult to remember what happened 25 years ago. I remember watching Shawn Kemp. He did things in a very similar fashion to Blake Griffin. He threw down dunks like that on people. (Much better centers as a matter of fact) I could probably find 10 Jordan dunks that were better.

Dominique Wilkins was an amazing dunker.
Darryl Dawkins dunks were insane.
Kevin Johnson over Hakeem was more impressive, as he was a 6'1 guard dunking on a 7'1 center who was one of the best shot blockers of all time.

The bottom line is...just because someone says that it wasn't a top 5 dunk, doesn't mean they have an agenda or do not like Blake, or what ever you want to say about someone because they don't agree with your opinion. It just means they have a different opinion, or a different perspective on great dunks.

I agree with this 100%. That "dunk" was weak. He barely touched the rim. It was just as much luck as it was skill. The ball could have easily popped out and then this thread wouldn't exist.

So the question is, why did the ball go in? Because Blake slammed it down with authority? :laugh2: No. Because he got lucky and it went in. It could have just as easily rimmed out.



Put it like this. If a guy banks in a 3 w/o calling glass, in other words, without doing it intentionally, we don't give him as much props. This "dunk" was the equivalent of that.

I'll give him props for taking the contact and still getting the ball in the hoop. But as far as the "dunk", it was weak.

Shaq used to tear down backboards. There wasn't enough power in that "dunk" to kill a mosquito.

Still a nice play, excellent hops, the balls to attempt a dunk and he did score. But best dunk ever? :laugh: I think I'll reserve that spot for an actual dunk.

I think Lebron's dunk was far more impressive and I don't like either player. Lebron's at least had the element of surprise.

Lol wasn't Weiss 7'3"? He was standing straight up and tilted his head to the left. Anyone that thinks Vince Carter's dunk is overated is insane. Lebron jumped over a 5'11" point guard that was bent all the way over and people thought that was crazy...

Also, Vince Carter has posterized all time greats. Look up Vince Carter dunking on Alonzo Mourning, Ben Wallace, Dikembe Mutombo, and David Robinson.

The with hands downs and head tilted with feet on the ground was about 7'0 tall, Carter also used his hand to push off the guy. Perkins was in the air with arms extended so he was about 7'8 or more.

No way was that the greatest dunk ever...it was the best 'dunk' of the year so far...if you wanna call that throw/rip tap a dunk.

None of those other guys had that much contact on the dunk and that is what impresses me!

Or...

We have seen better dunks. I am a huge Griffin fan, but I wouldn't call that one of the top dunks I have seen.

It is easy to remember dunks from this year or last year. Especially with the media that surrounds sports now. It is more difficult to remember what happened 25 years ago. I remember watching Shawn Kemp. He did things in a very similar fashion to Blake Griffin. He threw down dunks like that on people. (Much better centers as a matter of fact) I could probably find 10 Jordan dunks that were better.

Dominique Wilkins was an amazing dunker.
Darryl Dawkins dunks were insane.
Kevin Johnson over Hakeem was more impressive, as he was a 6'1 guard dunking on a 7'1 center who was one of the best shot blockers of all time.

The bottom line is...just because someone says that it wasn't a top 5 dunk, doesn't mean they have an agenda or do not like Blake, or what ever you want to say about someone because they don't agree with your opinion. It just means they have a different opinion, or a different perspective on great dunks.

I agree with you 100%. Either people have short memories to not remember anyone dunking pre-2004 or their jaws are lodged on Griffin's nutsack much like Mozgov's.

On a side note Kemp had the best post dunk celebrations from pointing to Lister after destroying him to getting props from Chris Gatling after embarrassing him (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpdlstqS6Do).

Carter's in the Olympics is probably the best i've seen though

This dunk was just ridiculous!

What's so great about this dunk is not only having a smaller guy posterize a big, but it's also the way Varejao flopped backwards after the contact and how he KNEW he just got posterized with that grin on his face.

What does Perkins height in the air have anything to do with this? Vince Carter jumped over a player that was 7'2". Blake is slamming into a 6'10" center that only averages 1.4 blocks for his career.

Also, if you watch the other angles of the Carter dunk you'll notice Carter doesn't actually push off. He tried putting his hand on the guys head and his wrist grazes the guys face. Don't believe me? Watch at :43 seconds in this vid.

It was hella sick, but I think Lebron's dunk this week was just as good.

They should create a new name for Blake's throw ins. Dope, but it's not a "dunk".

Its not a dunk. Just because he touches the rim with the slightest touch of his finger doesnt make it a dunk. Crazy athletic play...absolutly. Dunk...No.

Im not a blake hater, I think he's great, but its not a TRUE dunk. Textbooks can call that a dunk all they want, but its not a dunk.

Griffin's dunk tonight was awesome! Still though, Vince Carter over the French dude is the best dunk I've ever seen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMrPjl-927Q

compare this to the Blake Griffin play, and Griffin is about 1 or 2 feet higher up in the air. Griffin's head is all the way above the rim, his chin is above the rim. VCs top of head wasn't even at the rim.

my favorite dunk that I think of right now is Kobe over Steve Nash to win that big playoff game at the last second

Also Odom with one of the better assists of all time also

So just throwing the ball into the hoop qualifies as a dunk now? Did Dwight start that at the ASG with his "dunk"?

Blake does touch the ring on this dunk so there lies the difference between him and Dwight.

Didn't touch the rim on his dunk over Mozgov... A dunk is defined as a "hard layup" so yes, throwing it through the hoop counts as a dunk.

His head just gets above the rim due to Perkins hitting him... and no his chin does not get above the rim. Blake has 4 inches on Carter.

Vince Carter was jumping toward the hoop and doesn't have nearly as much push off. Take a look at my comment on the last page for proof.

Vince Carter regularly got his head above the rim. I don't know if Blake can even get his head above the rim off vertical.

Wow great argument that his head is higher = better dunk. Smh.. I guess this makes up for the fact the Clippers are not going to make the finals. But they have cool dunks!!

This.. He also wasn't even going full speed it was just pure very. Also that dude with 8 second left in the back round is pretty funny. Reminds me of daday from Friday after next.

BG's was tough but not the best ever.

VC on Weis
Pippen on Ewing
Nique on Bird
VC on Mourning
Kemp on Gatling
Kemp on Lister
Amare on Olowokandi (with Marbury's reaction)
etc

What do you think? What was better? Here is Blake's if you haven't seen it yet!

It's questionable whether that should even be called a dunk.

But even if you want to call it a dunk, there are several that I would rank above that one.
