Jordan Brand’s burgeoning new generation of stars received a rapid jolt with the addition of the soaring highlight reel Blake Griffin. We know he can dunk unlike any other, but does he have that fluid style and flair that MJ had? During this quirky moment in yesterday’s pre-game warm-up between the Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat, Blake Griffin displayed his inner Jumpman by dunking the ball in iconic fashion – toes pointed out and the basketball at the highest peak of elevation. Was this a candid moment, or did Blake tip off the photographers with a “hey…watch this”? Check out the comparison between Blake’s version and Michael’s original below.

How the fuck is 20 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 blocks against the reigning champion Miami Heat awful, Facsimile? Yes, his dad is black and his mom is white (lost as to what this has to do with anything). Guess what? the stats say he's is a premiere player in the NBA, and your ignorant comment is the ONLY awful thing related to this photo.
@187swizz Seeing as how he actually dunked the ball (unlike MJ), I think he does more than imitate OR duplicate.
@Facsimile grade A hatred in this....bless your heart
@NotATroll12345 Thats your opinion. But thats as close this chump will come to MJ.
