Blake Griffin Open To Be In Dunk Contest

As a matter of fact, it’d be a sin for the NBA not to invite Griffin to participate in the Dunk Contest in L.A. From FanHouse: ‘A good many of those shots have been dunks, prompting Nuggets coach George Karl to say Griffin “leads the league in dunks (and) might for the next 10 years.’ In fact, it sometimes looks like a dunk contest for Griffin. With that in mind, Griffin said he wouldn’t mind competing in the dunk event during All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles. ‘If they ask me to do it, I’ll do it,’ Griffin said. No rookie has played in an NBA All-Star Game since Houston’s Yao Ming in 2002-03, and he wasn’t even a 20-10 guy that season. But Griffin didn’t disagree when suggested it would be difficult to earn such a berth due to the Clippers’ record.”

    first one to stick his entire arm in the rim
    im calling it right now

  • reflex

    This needs to happen, the dunk contest has been dead for a few years now, Blake of Griffindor (have we decided on a nickname yet?) would bring it back to life. Someone needs to get at LeBron’s punk ass as well. Griff, Bron, Dwight & 1 other and I’m tuning in. NO NATE!

    Let’s start up a LetBlakeDunk.com and a NevereverletShannonorNatedunkagain.com

  • jtam101

    Unless he disappoints like Shannon Brown did last year.

  • bambe

    His dunks really remins me of Shawn Kemp.

    Well i wouldn’t get too excited. His in game dunks are nuts, but what if he goes Shannon Brown in the contest? If not he might actually win it.

  • http://soundcloud.com/boy-sanchez Boy Sanchez

    Russel Westbrook, Derrick Rose, JR Smith and Blake Griffin for the contest!!

  • cris

    Westbrook rejected an invite.

    Griffin, Howard…

    Sonny Weems up in Toronto can throw down too.

    Man seriously what happen d with shannon last year ..
    He just froze!

  • D12FSU

    blake won the mcdonalds high school dunk contest back in the day.. would love to see him during all star saturday night, even if his “in game” dunks are probably better or more exciting

  • burnt_chicken

    I would like to see him dunk with his face. I would think that would automatically qualify for a 50, even from Kenny, and even if his first dunk was a 50 for windmilling Nate with the left from the foul line.

  • http://slamonline.com kobehater

    he needs 2 b in the dunk contest, and not suck. plus KOBE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • http://ballislife.com Stephon

    If he enters then he’ll resurrect the slam dunk competion, for its been a let down the last 2 years.

  • 80

    Apart from being a great dunker he appears to be a guy with good sense of humor,I vote for invite!

  • zarky


  • MikeC.

    Veal Scalabrine!!!

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    Rose, Bron, Dwight, and Gryffindor (I’m liking the nickname reflex) would finally bring some life back into the contest.

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

    I didnt think his participation was ever in question. ….. Hes got some tricks. Biggest windmill ever

  • http://www.slamonline.com NickthaQuick

    Honestly after this summer and how things started out, I don’t foresee Lebron entering the dunk contest with his popularity waning as it has. He is great in-game dunker, just don’t know if he can win in a dunk contest with great jumpers — Lebron is a great leaper.

  • JD

    This kid wont disappoint cant wait for the dunk contest now

  • http://hoopistani.blogspot.com hoopistani

    best dunk contest related post in a decade

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jahmai

    Hell yes!! Russell Westbrook said he might do it too, just imagine, Blakezilla and Russell in the dunk contest in LA! Amazing, BTW I’m voting for Blake in the ASG game too.

  • William

    Griffin, Wall, Weems, Eric Gordon
    Westbrook (all star), Rose (all star), Lebron (won’t dunk), don’t let shannon brown dunk, Nate/Howard (retired)

  • http://www.twitter.com/CFleguel The Stro Show

    Nick Young!!!

  • Blackphantom

    Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and ……hmmm help me out here who else should be put in the dunk contest?

  • zogs

    sonny weems, james white, or javale mcgee for 4th guy

  • bashmo

    Well Griffin is a beast athlete. You know he aint gon be goin with any bs props like a cap or shiny green shoes. He is gonna straight up JAM the ball.


  • ramo

    igoudala,eric gordon,blake griffin,sonny weems,westbrook,rose,terrico white,

  • J Roc

    Get Rodney Carney in this

  • Blackphantom

    @basho, yes he is the best dunker ever, but……he wouldn’t win the dunk contest now, the guy is too old

  • hambone

    dont want griffen in.yeh nice windmills but not a contest winner.as for the kemp comparisons.not even close yet,plus kemp had mad swagger grabbin his nuts.double pump reverse on kenny walker..coast to coast..lister blister.griffen is nice but not kemp,plus the guys a mute

  • bashmo

    lool yea BlackPhantom i kno but still it’d be cool to see what he can do. He is still a better athlete than most in this league, really a monster and the best dunker ever bar none.

  • adam warren

    my dunk comp prediction….derrick rose…blake griffen….eric gordon…and sonny weems vs javale mcgee in a dunkoff like what they did with gordon and derozan last year…with sonny prevailing

  • michelle

    Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook both need to be in the dunk contest! One is a monster and the other is dynamic, with moves you would see in a video game!

  • michelle

    aww…just read in another article that Russell Westbrook as offered by the NBA to participate in the dunk contest, but declined…hope he at least plays in the All Star Game


    Where’s James “FLIGHT” White at??? Sign him to any team for a 10 day contract leading up to All Star Weekend and let him enter!! I don’t care who you throw in there after that cause they should give him the trophy the night before during halftime of the Rookie\Sophmore game.

  • Fat Nasty

    Blake Griffin should be an all-star!!!


    I have a feeling Blake would be awesome in the dunk contest and not dissapoint like Shannon. Bring back the exciting dunk contest by adding great dunkers like Blake or else whats the point of the dunk contest bcuz these past few yrs theyve been awful

  • James

    griffin, Dwight howard, lebron and get vince carter and im tuning in. I would pay to even watch it on tv.

  • sham

    demar derozan or sonny weeems raptorrrrrrrrs

  • http://google c_cantrell

    griffin better make the all star game
