Blake Griffin Alley Oop Dunks on Kyle Korver, Sports Guy Bill Simmons Cheers on

Another day, another Blake Griffin highlight. What else is new? America’s favorite rookie has alley-ooped on the Timberwolves like an acrobat, completed a reverse alley-oop, and then of course there was this, my personal favorite. His latest feat was up there with all of them, an alley-oop on Kyle Korver of the Chicago Bulls. Check it out:

The dunk itself wasn’t the only thing that had the internet buzzing on Wednesday night. J.E. Skeets of The Basketball Jones correctly identified ESPN’s The Sports Guy Bill Simmons as a man in the crowd cheering on the dunk! Here’s the pic:

Blake Griffin Makes Reverse Alley-Oop Dunk Look Easy (Video)

Nothing surprises us at this point when it comes to Blake Griffin and freak athleticism.  His dunking abilities are going to make for a long career of sports blogs being filled with videos that worship his talent.  I’m not trying to beat a dead horse here, but do people actually appreciate how easy he makes it look?  How many times have you seen a reverse alley-oop dunk during a game?  Personally, I can’t think of one.  Griffin has already mastered the traditional alley-oop, so he decided to create a bit of a challenge for himself on Saturday night — if you even want to call it that.

If this kid doesn’t win the Slam Dunk Contest I’ll be stunned.  He comes up with new dunks on a regular basis and busts them out during actual games.  For Blake Griffin, the regular season is one long dunk competition.  Thanks to The Big Lead for the video.

Blake Griffin Does it Again With Alley-Oop Against Timberwolves (Video)

Once again, Blake Griffin shows why he was the No. 1 pick a year ago and the front-runner for the NBA Rookie of the Year. In last night’s Clippers victory over the Timberwolves, Griffin scored 22 points — none more impressive than these two:

Griffin added 10 rebounds to record his sixth-straight double-double. This dunk was one of three high-flying slams on the night by Griffin — bringing his season total to somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 highlight reel plays. A guy Griffin’s size — 6 feet 10 inches, 250 pounds — shouldn’t be able to  do what he’s able to do, but he does it. Let’s keep our finger crossed in hopes that he does in fact participate in the dunk contest.

Blake Griffin Open to Participating in Slam Dunk Contest

Though he has the misfortune of playing for the pathetic Clippers who have the worst record in the NBA at 4-17, rookie Blake Griffin is one of the most exciting players in the league. He can rebound, post up, bang inside, and he’s one heck of a dunker. He’s tea bagged fools he gets so high in the air, and he has to be considered one of the best, if not the best, dunker in the league. Whether all his power comes from the shake weight we don’t know, but we do know that the All-Star Game will be a heck of a lot more excited with him participating in it.

The good news is that unlike many other stars, Griffin says he’s willing to participate in the Slam Dunk Contest if he’s invited (duh! of course he will be). He told FanHouse via Slam Online “If they ask me to do it, I’ll do it,” Griffin said. It’s about time we’ve heard a star who is willing to participate in a fan-friendly event and absolutely stun us all. We’re still waiting on LeBron to take his shot (which probably won’t ever happen now), because there are far too many no-name guys who take part.

Griffin may be on a crap team but he’s an exciting player, and he’ll only further solidify his status as a fan’s player if he participates. If Dwight Howard also is in, this will be one for the ages.

Blake Griffin Dunks on Knicks Russian Timofey Mozgov (Video) – Teabags Him!

Knicks center Timofey Mozgov is a 24-year-old rookie center from Russia. He’s only played 14 games and 168 minutes in his young NBA career, but he officially was baptized on Saturday night. Clippers rookie forward Blake Griffin went for 44 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 assists against the Knicks and had several monster slams. His dunk over the 7’1″ 250lb center is a must-see video if there ever was one. Check out the video of Blake Griffin dunking over Knicks center Timofey Mozgov:

That was straight up nuts to the face action. Griffin got up so high he had to throw the ball down through the cylinder from a few feet away. I don’t think I’ve seen a sicker dunk since Vince Carter jumped over the dude in the Olympics. Yeah, the Clippers may have lost that game and are now 1-11, but they won the street cred battle with that dunk. I guess that’s what they call a Russian teabag party?

Devin Harris Ejected for Tackling Blake Griffin, Clippers Still Lose

Just how bad are the Clippers? They’re so bad an opposing team can lose its best player early in the game and still beat them on the road. Yup, the Clippers dropped to 1-10 and lost their sixth straight game falling at home to the Nets 110-96. New Jersey got the win despite point guard Devin Harris getting ejected in the second quarter for tackling forward Blake Griffin.

Griffin broken free in the open court following a turnover and had an easy dunk in front of him. Harris came from behind to deny the easy deuce but wound up being assessed a flagrant 2 foul and getting ejected.

Nets talking puppet head coach Avery Johnson said Devin Harris wasn’t looking to hurt Griffin but he just didn’t want to give up the easy layup. I would agree with that assessment. So did Griffin, who said after the game he could tell there was no malicious intent behind the move.

The Nets didn’t need Harris because Jordan Farmar came on and dished out 12 assists while the team shot 60% from the field. The Clippers hovered slightly below 40% with Eric Bledsoe and Eric Gordon combining to shoot just 33%. They may challenge the Timberwolves for the dubious distinction of worst team in the league.

Blake Griffin Caught Pregame Using a Shake Weight (Video)

A little rookie hazing? Had to have been. How else can you explain Clippers second-year man Blake Griffin (technically a rookie) getting caught using a shake weight before LA’s game in San Antonio? There is no other possible explanation. Here’s the video of Blake Griffin shaking it up with the shake weight:

Jalen Rose had the priceless line “Some things are better done behind closed doors.” He’s certainly right; using a shake weight in public has to violate every single man law out there, and it’s a reason why Cato June says Griffin was busted by the pause police. As for the game, the Clippers dropped their 18th straight game to the Spurs. Some things never change.
