VIDEO: Blake Griffin’s dunk over Kendrick Perkins, as told by someone who knows nothing about basketball
As part of Metro’s diversity initiative, we’ve decided to hand over our morning sports coverage to writers who know absolutely nothing about sports…
Last night, a large man jumped over another large man and made a basket during a professional game of basketball.
Something about this must have been really important because many people are talking and tweeting about it. We’ve observed the footage and can confirm that a dunk took place… and yes, it looks cool, but we’re not entirely sure why it’s different from other dunks, mainly because we haven’t watched video of other dunks in an effort to compare and contrast.
Here’s what we’ve figured out so far.
Blake Griffin, a Clippers player who bears a striking resemblance to Kris Humphries (now, that guy we know), ran towards the basket and leapt a giant leap. Kendrick Perkins, a Thunder player, extended his arm, trying to block Griffin, but he made the dunk anyway. Griffin looked jacked up afterwards and broke free from a behind bear hug from a fellow player. Other players beat their chests. Everyone got excited. Kewl.
