Slam(s)adaday: Blake Griffin Over the NY Knicks

The Knicks may have won the war, 124-115, but Blake Griffin won battle, after battle, after battle. Here’s three of the smashes he had Saturday night en route to dropping 44 points of knowledge on New York.

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! Seriously, where can I get the poster for the last one?!

  • BGBallin

    That second dunk off baseline was INSANE!!!

    How high is his vertical? 42″+

    Slam dunk competition……what out!

  • Bruno

    eric gordon also got one hell of a dunk in this game

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    I didn’t believe it when cats were heralding Griff as the next ROY… I believe it now. Basketball-wise, Blake Griffin is the truth.

  • Benjamin Stone

    That was just flat out some of the sickest sh*t I’ve ever seen on a basketball court. No regard for human life indeed…

  • Benjamin Stone

    I mean I’m just sitting here laughing hysterically…

  • Bruno

    damnnnn at the second dunk

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    …..if only highlights equalled victories….they would be the 1st in the West by now

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    I think Blake Griffin is one of the Monstars from Space Jam…..ridiculous, props are needed where props are due, and I don’t think there has been a guy since Shawn Kemp who can do the stuff he is doing on a nightly basis……RIDICULOUS

  • http://www.slamonline.com J

    The vidcap says enough..

  • CLo14

    Third dunk was just unreal!!! I keep on clicking the 0:06 mark because it was just that sick to see and hear the slam on Gallo. SICK!

  • robz

    fawk hs a monster…dang lebron shud watch dz one

  • LD

    He’s gonna tear down a rim this season. A real gamebreaker.

  • Benjamin Stone

    Co-sign the Kemp comparison, Black Rick. My thoughts exactly. Kid’s a freak…

    \Slams all day

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Just watched the other two dunks and my first thought was… WHAT THE F*CK?! The hype is justified.
    It also should be noted that despite his freakish athleticism, his all-around skills are actually pretty nice which make him so good.

  • LA Huey

    *Slow clap*

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    This game was just a crazy @ss dunk fest… Amare had two monster slams and Gordon threw one down on Mozgov. I should have seen this one on league pass today.

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/overdribbling chiqo

    that ain’t right.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @Teddy yeah Amar’e slammed on Blake and Brian Cook…..but nobody will care because that just doesn’t compare to these jams…..these are classics right here

  • Pharoah

    This dude is a BEAST! Straight outta a video game damnn. He did the D12 superman dunk in game wow

  • Tano

    Seems like the early McDyess in Denver, but maybe even more athletic…

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/32JSE Yesse

    The atheticism in Blake is just amazing. When he gets there with his fundamentals he could be one of the greatest.

  • http://www.twitter.com/HurstySYD Hursty

    That kind of abuse is just nasty, damn near illegal.

  • jahmai

    It’s getting ridiculous, this guy is UNREAL. He
    already has more amazing dunks in his first 12 games or so than the rest of the NBA. NBA: Where Blake Happens!

  • zarky

    blake should be in the dunk contest. it’s in LA so he’s gotta be a shoe in. get d-rose in there too.

  • kev

    man this kid is a monster, too bad he is on the clippers

  • kev

    i must have watched these like 50 times!!!! griffin and gordon are becoming must see tv!

  • BobbyBronx23

    He’s the best in-game dunker I have seen in a long time… this is coming from a Knicks fan.

    He’s a walking highlight reel. Everytime he touched the ball I was on the edge of my couch.

  • jahmai

    @Zarky, that would be amazing. Drose, Griffin, Westbrook and LeBron in the dunk contest. I’m already getting hyped, probably will never happen though.

  • jahmai

    I mean, Lebron desperately is trying to get his image fixed, so participating in the dunk contest can only do him good. People have been begging for him to join since his rookie season.

  • http://simonlawy888.blogspot.com Simon Lawy

    Trade him to Blazer for Grandpa Oden, Clippers suck anyway

  • The Philosopher

    I realize that these were just dunks.
    But, we may be looking at the beginning stages of the greatest power forward… of all time.

  • ShadiestBen

    ^^^ Possible, more likely one of the top five in game dunkers of all time. He’s like Amare before the surgeries but better.

  • The Philosopher

    ^You are right.
    He is better than Amar’e Stoudemire.
    Right now.

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne


  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    I’ma get a crowbar and bang it on my knee; cause this guy had a BROKEN kneecap last autumn!!
    Come ON!!

  • http://klatschendom.wordpress.com/ speedy

    The real deal.

  • ShadiestBen

    Yea he’s better than Amare right now too bad Clips system sucks. Do you think he’s a better overall player right now than Amare was before the injuries.

  • http://nasteedunx.blogspot.com Nasteedunx

    Did he just rise up over Timofey as if dude was Tina Fey?

    You Betcha!!

  • vtrobot

    gallo swallowed.

  • The Philosopher

    Griffin is a better rebounder. A better athlete. He is bigger. He is stronger. He is a better ball handler. He is a better passer. Probably an equal shooter, although that is debatable. Griffin does not have a top flight point guard to get him the ball at the right times consistently. If he did…
    In all honesty, one of the only aspects of the game that Amar’e Stoudemire has over Blake Griffin is overall experience. He has been through wars, seen some things. He is a more experienced scorer.

  • arjae828

    Ima knicks fan…die hard. and i’ve never been as deflated as when i watched blake bang on us. it was crazy because he just wouldn’t stop ! you thought one was bad, then he came with something crazier, then even crazier, then just took the dunk contest crown before he even got invited. What makes is so crazy is, i really thought e.gordon would have the highlight of the night. Basically, Griffin gave me what i expected to see on a nightly basis when I heard about the Amare signing.

  • JTaylor21

    Good thing I have LPass because I had no idea all this madness was going on last night. Also people thought I was crazy when I said that BGriff’s a better athlete than Bron and Amare has nothing on dude’s hops. Amare used to smash on cats as a rook but he never did it with this kind of verocity and power. BGriff’s athleticsm>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Amare’s athleticsm and he’ll be a better PF in about 1.5 yrs.

  • birdy

    damn, thats like THREE of the top ten dunks of this season RIGHT THERE. blake is out-of-this-world-ly insane and damn get him in the dunk contest already!

  • McAy

    inhuman athleticsm
    this is not fair

  • bLeSs1

    He is a mixture of a young Amare in a Karl Malone body..but his dunks is straight up out of this world!! im glad i got him on my fantasy team..This kids future is brighter than the sun!! and those dunks are arguably can be debated as dunks of the year!! who can top that?!

  • Jer Dawg

    I can’t get enough of these highlight (Clips)! I watched from my seat and each dunk kept topping the other. We are all Witnesses! People talk about him being a lot of great athletic past and current players. The combo of size and strength and skill is very Lebron like. But, Lebron says he’s approx. 250lbs? Blake is listed at 251lbs. and looks much more muscular. People exaggerate Lebron’s vitals so then is Blake 6’10″ 280lbs with superhuman abilities? WTF?!?!! At least I always look for Clippers to play hard and compete almost every night with highlight reel plays. Can’t say the same for some other droll teams.

  • Vince5

    Griffin’s last night game deserves a ROY award. Honestly, dunk constest anyone?

  • allison

    Second dunk Superman style, loving it

  • Blackphantom

    You gotta love this guy

  • fruizm

    note to self: watch more clippers games.

  • Reflex

    The Gallo dunk for me is the sickest of the lot, to have the hops to do that after a 360 turnaround is ridiculous! beast!!- then again, he did make Mozgov kiss his nuts which was straight up disrespectful. I’m really happy for the kid & hope he can stay injury free and have a great career. Slam, could you get a high res image for either of the last 2 dunks on your site, I’d love that as my desktop image.

  • Reflex

    He actually abused Gallo on that last vid, I can’t get enough of it!!. I want to see him go hard on Dwight, that’ll be something special!

  • http://slamonline.com niQ

    I actually find it hilarious how he’s got Mozgov’s face right where his balls is in that video picture. LOL

  • hitman

    The second one was a D12 slam, but the 3rd was straight nasty.

  • reflex

    haaaaaaaa! Just noticed on the Mozgov dunk, one of the guys on the Knicks’ bench in street clothes feels how nasty the dunk was, lol! Reminds me of Kobe’s reaction when Griffin baptised Mbenga. Also, check out the ref’s reaction before he gives a the foul on Mozgov, priceless!

  • ShadiestBen

    Philosopher yeah he is all of that. Rebounding wise he is a long way ahead. Amare before the surgery and Blake now are probably equal shooters. As it is today thats the one area Amare has a clear advantage.

  • Jeff

    Just look at the new york knicks bench in the second video. Classic.

    i have no more words. this guy is just…. ..

    u forgot the one where he got head level off one foot

    Long time reader, never post. But those dunks are sick nasty!!!

  • http://slamonline.com Krishan

    Hey you guys rememder spud webb and how people kept saying that when he dunks, you feel like he was flying up and up? That’s what these dunks remind me of. Expect instead of 5-foot-7 spud, we get a 6-foot-10 behemoth built like a mack truck. I laughed my a$$ off at the third video, seriously.

  • http://upandfresh.fr frednetick

    The first dunk is huge, the second is insane, the third one is just ridiculous !!

    The FIRST ROOKIE for 25 YEARS to achieve a +40pts +15rbs +5ass. Period.

  • http://www.sweetnsalt.net LexaB

    Unreal. Insane. Kemp-style like, even better (coming from a huge Shawn fan back in the days). No words can describe the beastin’ of that guy. Give him a much better team around him, especially at the point, and just watch the L drowning into fear. Let’s start that effin’ Griffin-in-da-dunk-contest campaign ASAP !

  • BostonBaller

    If SLAM wants to continue to be THE ONLY MAG to matter then they have to have at least 2 SLAMUPS of GriffDawg in the next ish. Not the ones when there are two posters on on page back to back but 2 separate SLAMUPS. Griff is not just going for Rookie of the year he is playing for keeps! What other player at his position is playing as well as he is? Is he ASG starter material, let’s get it going now. lol

  • http://Www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Blake is amazing. GOT DAMN!! With him and Wall, I think there hasn’t been two such outstanding rookies in the same year since 2003 with LeBron and Carmelo. Speaking of LeBron and Blake, see I wouldn’t wanna see a conventional dunk contest with them and D. Rose, cause they’re all amazing in-game dunkers, so I’d only wanna see that if they have a few weak defenders out there try to guard each of them and one of their teammates on a fast break, and then rate how badly they sh*t on the defenders. Now THAT would be my kind of dunk contest.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    ^^^^ i like that idea. but no one would volunteer to be the test dummy

  • slick ric

    Im officially a Blake Griffin fan

  • slick ric

    I would say Blake is more young Mcdyess or Amare’ than Shawn Kemp, I mean All of them are athletic freaks but shawn kemp was on another level, kemp looked like a guard with mad hops whenever he dunked.

  • logues

    put this guy on the cover, slamadamonth, and slamups right now

  • logues

    i agree with slick ric. although i think hes way more explosive than mcdyess. amares younger days are close, blake is more explosive tho. ppl tend to forget just how good older guys were when someone new comes in. shawn kemp was awesome, although i dont think kemp coulda did either of those last 2 dunks the way blake did

  • JalepinoSausage

    daamn !! He did the Dwight Howard Superman dunk … BUT on a boy. He got great coordination , footwork & MAAAD Hops. The Maad Proffesor needs to come down to Miami. They’l need a player like that maybe even next year.

  • MusketeerX

    Was at this game and I just couldn’t get over his athleticism. I’m a huge Knicks fan, and just when you thought the Knicks were running away with the game, Griffin would have a momentum stopping dunk.

    This kid will be ROY and eventually MVP. If he were on any other team with some decent talent, they would be playoff contenders.

    Clippers should have a bright future. If I were Vinny Del Negro, I would tell them to lose every game this year to get the number one pick again…

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    LOL okay now you guys are just being ridiculous. Blake Griffin better than Amare Stoudemire? Please. The only thing Blake has on Amare right now is rebounding. Blake will be a great player in this league but Amare is ALREADY a great player.

  • SuperDuperFly

    I think a blind person was ooohhh-ing & aaaahh-ing when BlaKe Griffin was jammin!!!!

    Clippers are gonna get their prop’s this year, can you say Oklahoma Thunder the 2nd? Young teams are stepping it up this year, about time!!!!

    2nd dunk is reminds me vince carter’s dunk over frederic weis with the usa team.

    damn! two of the best dunks of the season by far no one can challenge him when he goes up

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    I don’t understand. He’s a Clipper. He should be fat, overpaid and being traded for an equipment manager named Tony. What is this?

  • http://www.slamonline melvin ely

    The hopes and dreams Timofey brought with him from the motherland are now shattered thanks to Griffin dunking on him so hard his future male offspring will all bear resemblance to Blake. Hey can we get a yomama joke going on? THat one’s my submission.

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com Michael NZ

    @Teddy, wtf, dude? Amare ain’t ‘great’. Hopefully thats a typo. Griffin will get him by seasons end.

  • Dana

    this guy needs to win ROY. that’s the best dunk i have ever seen! he’s a monster and puts in 100% in every game he plays. sucks that he’s on the clippers, but if they can start putting the right guys around him for once, in 2-3 years they will be good.

  • http://www.michaelcho.com M Cho

    Watching that game was like watching terminator vs. terminator. Amar’e was like the liquid metal terminator, dangerous but all fluid and diverse with him game. Blake, on the other hand, was like the old T800 — just genetically engineered with one single purpose: to dunk on you.

    I saw this game last night@staples,
    IT Was even sicker in person…just a didnt vantage point you cant even see how fast he really was spinning in relationship to game time,….dude didnt even break stride when he spun and dunked on the last one..just amazing

  • al

    they didnt even show his fade-aways they were sick!

    The ROY strikes again! That 1 on mazgov was sick,sick,sick. Like cube and tucker say: DAAAAAMMMMM!!!!!

    WTF!! was this guy exposed to gamma ray radiation???

  • Dre Baller

    the first one is so underrated. check the replay from another angle; dude had his head above the rim http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aspCHyeOLPQ

  • Shadojoker

    this was another one of those moments where I casually grab a cup of coffee to watch a few dunks..and end up spitting my drink all over my computer in just complete dumbfoundness!! wow!! Blake Griffin is a freakin cyborg!! sure Amare crammed it on him and his team a couple times but what BG did was down right EMBARRASSING!! changing of the guard..Amare on Candy Man..meet Blake Griffin on the Knicks!

  • the truth


  • LBCaliKush

    This nigggga better be in the dunk contest. Westbrook too.

  • JalepinoSausage

    The last 2 comments contradict themselves beutifully. All im saying some people are designed for IN GAME DUNKING like Proff Griff ! a Dunk contest will just bring him down.

  • Cizzo

    I remember lastweek, to be more specific the dunk of the 2.0 to be exact the one hand punch over the kid from the T’wolves who had no business jumping in the first place, some of yall sla bloggers not to say any names were giving it to B.G. no vaseline style! Dissing my man man giving him no credit even trying to Greg Odom him and write him off as bust or ovrrated! One week later all of yall are one his nutts like herpes! Stop it, stay with him or forget him. I knew it would come to this sooner than some of yall would have envisioned… any real basketball purest would have seen this when he was at Oklahoma U, like I did so this no suprise to m to see him reign down on these HBA clowns! No told you so’s< just how do his nutts tastes now to all those who claimed he was overrated!

  • riggs


  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    riggs, Amare had 39 and 11. Not exactly a cake walk either.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Also, Amare is one of the best scorers in this league. Anyone who can’t see this doesn’t watch basketball.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Amare had nice numbers. But, Blake gave him like 45 and 17. That’s crazy son. particularly on that disfunctional Clippers team.

  • http://yahoo.com Big O.

    Seems like a lots people were getting ready to hand R.O.Y. to John Wall before the season began. Mr. Griffin has re-introduced himself to the basketball world and letting everyone knows it’s his trophy to lose. Despite his team’s record in which the Wizards aren’t much better, he will be ROY at the end of the year.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    I just want to point out Amare has given up a 31 & 31 game to Kevin Love, this 45 and 17 from Blake Griffin, a 25 16 and 7 from Darko, and another big game from someone, it might have been a 20 20 from Nazr Muhammad. Thats PUTRID

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    You can’t blame that all on Amare. What about Turiaf and Gallo, both of whom play in the paint?
    Now, Ronny is a decent defender, but we both know Gallo and Amare create the softest defensive frontcourt in the League.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Uhm I am not blaming every single point and rebound on Amar’e, but do you think any other good/great big man would ever let that happen to them by anyone more then once? how about more then 4 times in 12 games? I’m just saying that’s a ridiculous group of performances all on the same team. Amar’e should or needs to step up, once the game starts to get out of hand it should be his job as a leader to step in and say “alright, i’ll cover Love” or to do something.

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com Michael NZ

    Amare might be in the top 5 worst defenders I’ve ever seen.

  • Josh

    Sweet jesus, this dude is a beast.

  • Pingback: SLAM ONLINE | » Fantasy Basketball, Week 5

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Dirk. David West. Boozer. Zack Randolph.
    Four good/great big men who I believe could let that happen to them.
    Agree or disagree?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    David West, Boozer, and Zack Randolph are not good/great big men. Amar’e is not in the same general superstar bracket as any of those guys anyway, he is supposed to be a franchise player that can lead his team deep into the playoffs. Giving up ridiculous games to non-elite big men during the regular season is not a good starting block. And I highly doubt Boozer would give up 20+ rebounds more then once per 20 games. The other two maybe, well West would for sure, but he is overrated as all get out anyway, and shouldn’t even be mentioned in this conversation.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    And no that wouldn’t happen to Dirk, maybe if he didn’t play for Dallas, but not there with Haywood and Chandler, no way.

  • http://hibachisabas.blogspot.com/ Toni Kukoc

    oh and this is a good mix of that night:

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    It wouldn’t happen to Amare with Haywood and Chandler.
    That’s a ridiculous comment homie.
    Dirk, by himself, would get hosed on defense just like Amare does with the folks surrounding him.
    Amare is a poor defender. So is everybody on that list I named. The difference is that they aren’t asked to be the defensive anchor on their teams because everybody knows they aren’t great defenders.
    Come on son, that was the point of the list. You plug any of those guys in around the cats on the Knicks right now playing the system Mike D plays, and you get ridiculous performances by opposing big men. This is nothing new for Mike D’s teams.

    Allenp: amare is one of the laziest defensive players ive ever seen. if u cant see that from watching him, then ur not as smart as i thought


    the greatest little man big man rookie year in nba history. John Wall n Blake Griffin, gotta say great athleticism and skills.

  • ka

    tru dat allen, when he spun i was like, okay, lay it up big manOHSHI. barkley has a nice spin move on the break cuz he 5 inches shorter but nothing like the two feet lift off griffin pulled here. freakishness + skill = good combo

  • riggs

    @teddy: yeah the difference being one is a ROOKIE and the other is a 8 year vet…

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Where did I say Amare wasn’t lazy. I’ve routinely criticized him for it.
    I just named several other big men who are equally as bad as Amare on defense, particularly in one-on-one situations.
    Those cats just have the luxury of having other defensive stoppers around them, that’s it.
