Blake Griffin Pulls a Blake Griffin on Kendrick Perkins

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.

UPDATE:

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.”
