Blake Griffin from the Los Angeles Clippers was the amazing NBA player who won the Dunk Contest this year, last year it was New York Knicks’ Nate Robinson who won the contest three times already (2010, 2009, 2006), he has won more times than any other player followed by Michael Jordan with the Bulls (1987, 1988), Dominique Wilkins from the Atlanta Hawks (1985, 1990), Golden State Warriors, Jason Richardson (2002, 2003), Miami Heat Harold Miner (1993, 1995), other players like Orlando Magic Dwight Howard (2008), Laker Kobe Bryant (1997), Gerald Green with the Boston Celtics (2007), Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith(2005) and Indiana Pacers Fred Jones (2004) who has won it once.
While the 2009- 2010 season was one of the worst in Blake’s career this one is looking pretty for the young 21 year old player from Oklahoma. Last month as a rookie he scored 47 points on 4 shots against the Pacers, the Clippers won 114-107, on Feb. 19 at STAPLES Center he received approximately 68% votes at the Sprite Slam Dunk against Toronto Raptors DeMar DeRozan, Washington Wizards’ JaVale McGee and Oklahoma City Thunder’s Serge Ibaka.
Ibaka made a dunk starting from the free throw line, competition was Javale who dunked three balls in a single jump with a little help by John Wall. Blake’s jumps consist of this, for his first dunk he did a 360 style, followed by his elbow dunk that left a mark on his arm and when he was told there are no rules, his head started to rumble and a Kia came up. You can see all players’ dunk pictures here.
A Kia? Well coincidentally that was the brand of the car Griffin used for his last dunk where he jumped over a car with Baron Davis inside the vehicle, and for the finishing touch the choir sang I Believe I Can Fly. That gave Blake just the right amount of confidence for this killer dunk that granted him the title of the 2011 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest Champion.
