    Props to griffin for the play, but Dwill has one of the worst dunking forms ever. That's why he got hung in the Olympics. It's almost like he's asking to be blocked.

    Why does the Barclay center feel like a highschool gym

    this.

    i thought i was the only person who noticed this. in the 2008 olympics i remember him trying SO hard to try and dunk on somebody every single game and got hung or hit the ball off the rim.

    The problem with dwills dunk is that he went against another vertical beast. If that was gasol,battier,Patterson.... automatic poster. He cocked that **** way back.

    Reminds me of this oldie but goodie. If Griffin could have come down and landed clean it would have been even sicker that it already was.

    This block you posted was much better than Blakes IMO. That is like a steal it was so nasty. It is more similar to this block:

    The only real flaw I could see came at the other end after Griffin's tremendous block. The Clips immediately turn it over! Must have irritated the hell out of Blake. Nice find, Clutch!

    For the first time i've seen him get up to block a freaking shot. He is an athletic beast, he should be swatting shots left and right just like D. Jordan.
