Slamadaday: Blake Griffin on Brad Miller

Perhaps young Clippers fans should start wishing that Blake Griffin avoid hitting his nogging on the rim during his dunks, because he came dangerously close to doing so last night:

    In about two months, dude already has more highlights than most have in a career.

    dude is an absolute beast.. he will be the best pf in the league in 2 years or so.. love watching this kid.. been following him since his high school days and always hoped he would make a good pro.. even tho i was upset that okc didnt win the lottery to pick him at number one.. but nonetheless dude has by far passed any expectations i had for him and his rookie season.. dude is a special breed of nba player that we only get to see once every decade or so

    Can’t help but pull for Griffin. He is a throw back, playing hard like Barkley and Malone. This kid just wants to tear the rim off the backboard.

    How about Bledsoe’s no look rebound -> pass earlier in the game. Bledsoe has game too

    All Brad could do was look up and admire.

    GOD DAMN!!!!! and if i could find a way to type that gutteral hacking up phlemg sound on the god part of that statement i would because this man’s dunks are sick.

    Playing hard like Barkely and Malone?
    How about playing hard like KG and Duncan, who put in work on BOTH ends, not just one.

    BANGIN !! His vert is real. Its the Bionic knee replacement. @allenp : What u talkin about – reboundin’ & intimidation is D too. The boy was just referring to the bestiality aspect as griff is young and as raw as the stuff you swallow. Don’t compare Proff Griff to Malone , youre just embarassing yourself. This is about DUNKS and Malone could NEVER, EVER, EVER ! be in a dunk contest. Put the pipe down kid.

    I wish more guys played as hard as Griffin. He seems to be trying twice as hard as anyone else on the court.

    he is totally like a barkley. except he’s taller, and has more hops and isn’t a round mound of rebound. but how doesn’t he block more shots with his crazy hops?

  • Omar

    I’ve never seen anyone hit their hit on the rim. Don’t know if I would find it humorous or amazing.

  • David V.

    Allenp, (Hot) Karl Malone didn’t play both ends? I wonder how he managed to get named to THREE All-Defensive first teams and one second team. He must have had some serious blackmail photos of a lot of the sportswriters voting for it. Sure, he was a choker, but not the disinterested slug on defense that Chuck was.

  • bnets

    Craig Smith was right about Blake Griffin

    Reminds me of an epic Sean Elliott dunk from the mid nineties, where he was looking into the rim. Anyways, I said it before and I’ll say it again: Griffin is Kemp-esque.

  • david

    Sick! I wish super crazy awesome dunks were counted in fantasy stats somehow.

    Cosign C_Cantrell on the OKC thing. For one, it woulda been dope and refreshing to have a kid play his high school, college AND NBA ball all in the same state.
    And two –
    PG – Russell Westbrook
    SG – Thabo Sefolosha
    SF – Kevin Durant
    PF – Blake Griffin
    C – does it even matter???

    Jeff Green can come off the bench.
    In terms of athleticism, ain’t nobody f*cking with that squad. Too bad it’ll never be.

  • logues

    Gerard: sean elliot had his head at rim level??? please show me the evidence!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Clyde

    Never ceases to amaze me, there’s a reason I have him on every one of my fantasy teams.

  • http://google c_cantrell

    i was hopin with everything in me that we would one day get to see that line-up but hey sh*t happens lol

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Well, C, like I said on here before, I wouldn’t be mad if dude ends up with Rose in the Chi one day. Hey, I can dream, right?

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    you know who got the raw end of the deal here??? Blake Griffins brother who has NO hops whatsoever… PHX of course drafted that one and has since let him go.

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    haha @ Dacre

  • http://google c_cantrell

    hell yeah you can bro lol

  • Vince5

    Blake Griffin is the reason why Shawn Bradley should get out of retirement. I wouldn’t miss that for anything.

  • JR

    Is this the Elliott dunk you were talking about? It is pretty sick haha
