NBAers React to Blake Griffin’s Dunk on Kendrick Perkins

A tweetcap.

Here’s the sequence of events that transpired Monday night: A.) Blake Griffin dunks all over Kendrick Perkins, completing his best dunk since the Timofey Mozgov incident, or, perhaps, ever. B.) Millions of NBA fans rush to Twitter, causing things like “Mozgov” “Kendrick Perkins” and “Shawn Kemp” (yeah, we don’t know) to trend worldwide. C.) Amongst those millions of NBA fans are a couple dozen NBA players, all of whom had wrapped up their games earlier or had the night off altogether. They send tweets not unlike those of the average fan. To paraphrase: “OMG BLAKE GRIFFIN!!!!!1!” D.) We compile all of those NBAers’ best reactions to form a tweetcap, which can be viewed by rolling through the gallery above. Enjoy.

    Wow! The dunk was so sick!

  • May me my moe moo

  • robb

    that wasn’t a dunk, that was nuclear fission. Kendrick’s eyelashes probably got incinerated after that.

  • floe

    is it just me or was lebron’s dunk over john lucas much more impressive?

  • syedh88

    half of these tweets were from tony allen and al thornton, i wanna see other stars’ reactions outside of lbj (whose dunk yesterday takes a back seat to blake’s dunk tonight)

    that Griffin dunk was crazy, i wish u woulda got it all the way clean but that was great! i think he gonna have another one before the years over.
    plus if he gets on the US olympic team i guarantee u he will have many more amazing dunks, probably vince carter like!

    LMAO at Amir Johnson saying Perk needed to sit down for the rest of the game. SMH at Tony Allen, he need to go drink bleach

  • Mariano Cairo

    lebron over lucas was more impressive.

  • Mundo

    al thornton couldn’t score on perky

  • Danny_W_UK

    Captain Planet. There’s your new cover headline SLAM………

  • Rik Smits Mullet

    still to early in blakes career if you seen the captain planet show. He needs five rings earth,water,wind,fire and dunking power. Also a blake dunk does more envoirmental harm to the planet with all the people tweeting and pressing rewind. Lol

    Perkins can call Blake “Lighter Fluid”, ’cause he was all up in his grill.

  • netacoma2003

    C’mon people…..Shawn Kemps’ dunk in MSG was better than Lebrons’ and Blakes’. People better research The Reign Man #40!

    Yo, that woulda been the illest dunk of the year…if it wasn’t also an offensive foul no call. B.Griff clearly mushed Perk with his off hand. So maybe the refs were in such awe that they either missed it or gave the offensive player the benefit of the doubt (there a lot of contact there). Either way, Tony Allen was being salty but he was right about the foul.

  • http://slamonline.com AlbertBarr

    Love the Captain Planet nickname

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeLRym4Q-pg Allenp

    Yeah, that is a good nickname.

  • http://www.nba.com Cheshire

    I’m with TAllen tho… I’m ain’t no hater but what’s up with everyone getting hyped when someone threw a ball through the net? I guess this one was a bit closer but that one on Mozgov was just straight up throwing the ball… smh

    If Dwight can win a dunk contest with it, why are splitting hairs whether it’s a dunk or not? Tony Allen=Bucknasty. Player Hater of the year award!

  • KR

    insanely nasty.
    but don’t be writing off brons dunk either – he straight jumped over a guy to catch a ball in mid-flight, he only makes it look easy.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    Man I hope this isn’t stupid but,
    Why Captain Planet???
    I mean I know the cartoon and all, but I’m definitely missing something.

  • Riggs

    it’s a dunk, shut the hell up about it. (to the people who are saying it’s not)

  • dmonz


  • http://anyoldthing Ugh

    I need to stop assuming the people on this forum aren’t in the NBA. Scarily, they talk the same as you guys…

  • standalone

    i thought i was the only person that thought bron’s dunk was still better…not taking away from blakes cause that was insane.

  • adagio

    LBJ’s dunk was impressive and acrobatic for sure. But he was leaping over a guy 5/10″ who had has back to him. Lucas never saw it coming. Perkins saw it coming right at him and Blake simply buried him. The fact that he caught the ball as it came through the hoop simply put the exclamtion mark on the whole thing.Hand down, the greatest dunk ever.

  • asdf

    damn tony allen really liked that dunk. tweeted about it 5 times
