Blake Griffin Threw Down A Monster Dunk At Team USA Practice (More Than One!)

Blake Griffin dunks the ball a lot, and powerfully so. At Team USA practice, he decided to toss the ball off the gym wall behind the backboard, corral it off the bounce and slam it through the hoop with his usual out-of-this-world ferocity.

This won’t help his chances to make the team (the roster is announced tonight at 7pm on NBA TV, and his chances are looking good), but it should.

[UPDATED] Blake also decided to do a little JR Rider era “Eastbay Funk” and killed that too

    Not a dunk. Just like his “dunk of the year”. Grazing your fingers on the ring does not constitute a dunk.

    “A slam dunk is a type of basketball shot that is performed when a player jumps in the air and manually powers the ball downward through the basket with one or both hands over the rim.” – wikipedia
    nothing there about touching the rim, pal…all you gotta do is throw it downward. so yea, grazing your fingers on the ring does kinda constitute a dunk….sorry about that one…you’ll get it next time i’m sure.

    Jumping ability and arm strength do count for something in modern basketball.

  • allstar#32

    The definition of a dunk is powering the ball downwards through the hoop, not need to touch the hoop.

  • SeattleBoy

    –I’m  6’2 175 pounds, 40 inch verticle, been dunking since high school: Anybody who believes that THROWING the ball into to the rim isn’t HARDER than a traditional dunk has clearly NEVER dunked a basketball themselves. If I could get so high that I could THROW the basketball into the rim, I’d never do a normal dunk again!! 

  • Lulz

     Cunners just got shit on….
