Blake Griffin dunks basketballs for a living. Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins was reminded of this in hysterical fashion last night on NBA TV.
A lot of folks are deeming it “Dunk of the Year.” Roughly 20 games in, it’s certainly memorable. And how about the assist from Chris Paul? Enjoy.
Perkins spoke to Hoopsworld.com about the highlight. He wasn’t coy, gave credit where credit was due, and pretty much chalked it up to a great offensive play on the part of the Clippers star.
“Well, it happens,” said Perkins. “At the end of the day if you’re a shot blocker, you’re going to get dunked on. It was a great play that he made. Obviously I wish I wasn’t in it, but it was a great play that he made. Definitely.
“I didn’t know what happened. I just knew I was trying to get to the rotation. Our defensive coverage had broke down and that’s what it was. It was a clean dunk.”
