Blake Griffin Wants to Be in the Dunk Contest

by December 22, 2010

The League’s most explosive dunker tells that if the powers that be want him there, he’ll take part in the aerial show. Giddy up: “ Tell us, right here and now, that you’re going to participate in the Slam Dunk Contest. BG: ‘That would be cool. If it’s something that the league wants me to do, I’ll probably try to do it.’ Do you already know what dunks you would do? BG: ‘Not really. I really don’t work on them a lot. If it turns out I’m going to do it, I’ll try to think of something creative.’ Dwight Howard has said he’s done with dunk contests, so you won’t have a chance to jump over him the way Nate Robinson did. Maybe you could bring Timofey Mozgov with you and re-create your dunk against the Knicks. By the way, you’re undefeated in these things, right? BG: ‘Yes. But I haven’t done one at a level as high as this one. I did the McDonald’s All-America contest when I was in high school. And I did a couple other small ones in Oklahoma.'”
