A lot of pressure on Griffin because the rest of the lineup doesn’t have much “sizzle” as Michael Jackson would say. Game dunks and dunk contest dunks are two different things.
The question begs can Griffin blend the two into an electrifying performance during All-Star weekend?
Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who has become must-see TV because of his slam dunks, will be in the NBA’s slam dunk contest, sources said Tuesday night. Joining Griffin will be Washington Wizards 7-foot center JaVale McGee, Oklahoma City Thunder 6-10 forward Serge Ibaka and Milwaukee Bucks 6-1 guard Brandon Jennings, sources said
I would imagine Jennings would be Griffin’s biggest competition (small guy vs. big guy), but at this point Griffin would have to be pretty awful to lose.
Lebron as you could imagine wanted no part of Griffin and opted out of competing.
