NBA Kicks: Sorry, The Only Dunk Blake Griffin Had Last Night Was His Shoes

Hyper-throw-in.

Technically, it wasn’t a dunk. Blake Griffin elevated, extended and powered it in over Kendrick Perkins. But didn’t quite dunk it. No rim-grabbing or pull-down. He did the same thing on Timofey Mozgov back in November 2010. Spectacular, yes. Rim-rocking slam? No.

He did have a dunk though if you count the Clippers flavored Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011‘s he was wearing. So dunk by proxy. He finished with 22 and 7 and a 112-100 win over the Thunder. Kevin Durant did what he could for 36 and 13 in his standard issue road Nike Zoom KD IV.

Other sneaker highlights of the night included Derrick Rose dropping 35 on the Wiz in his recently debuted adiZero Rose 2.5, Brandon Jennings getting the UA Bloodline “Black” some run for 21 in a win over the Pistons, Von Wafer and Earl Clark holding down the Jordan 3 Black/Cement and Penny Foam game, Delonte West doing 25 off the bench in the Nike Air Max Uptempo 2 “Duke”, and more.

Watch the Blake Griffin videos included, the first on Perkins and then the old one on Mozgov. Both cool, both throw-ins. Footage don’t lie!

He touched the rim if you watch the reply closely so it was a dunk

Old school rule:

Fingers inside and/or gripping the rim is a dunk.

Grazing doesn’t qualify. Ha.

Having some fun with it either way.

man that shit is harder than a dunk. griffith is going to rim and meets an immovable object in perkins but still has the speed and power to elevate and throw it down like that. that like a grown man throwing it down on his 6 year old on a 5 ft rim

a dunk is an attempt when u put the ball from above the rim. that rim rocking thing is called slamdunk. so technically that is a dunk
