Is Blake Griffin the greatest dunker of the post-Vince generation? In under 1.5 seasons in the NBA, Blake Griffin has amassed a mind-boggling collection in-game dunks that have set the internet ablaze with chatter, but his Monday-night theatrics over Kendrick Perkins have some wondering if Blake is possibly the greatest dunker of all-time. Then again, there are the detractors who believe that Blake’s dunk wasn’t exactly a dunk (more of an emphatic throwing of the ball through the hoop from an elevated position). If that’s the case, Blake Griffin is hands down the greatest thrower-of-the-ball-through-the-hoop-from-an-elevated-position of all-time, usurping that role from Keon Clark, who ‘dunked’ over Shawn Bradley in similar fashion some years ago. Blake has his Hyperdunk 2011s to thank, and Eastbay just go in-stock the Home and Away colorways of the Supreme variety, so head over the Eastbay to get yours and let us know who you think is the greatest in-game NBA dunker in history.
