They were just mentioned. Hmm. What now.
He should learn some non-dunk shots.
They must be angry Kia owners.
He should have told Taylor Griffin to focus on academics.
"Most of the NBA's greatest floppers your Vlade Divac, your Manu Ginobili they took a bump and just fell backwards," said Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro. "Blake has taken it to the next level. The NBA has never had someone this big and strong and athletic who also dives to the ground at the slightest contact. It's really something to witness."
Griffin's best flop of the night came in the second quarter when he drove the lane, had his left shoulder brushed into and then immediately snapped off a series of cartwheels, followed by a double, 360, twisting backflip that completed with on his back beyond the three-point line, writhing on the ground in faux pain.
"That was amazing," said Clippers point guard Chris Paul. "Some of the stuff he was doing in drawing that foul, you only see in Olympic gymnastics or diving. Oh, wow diving. That would be a great second sport for Blake. He already kind of competes in it."
That's a flagrant on himself.
The rim posterized him.
With a series of thunderous dunks, the most recent throwdowns coming over Pau Gasol of the Lakers, three poster companies have opened for business or have begun taking on investors. One company has even produced its first poster believed to be the first sports poster produced in the world since 1997.
"We feel the industry can get back to where it was in the late '80s and early '90s," said Jeff Stanton, CEO of Blake Dunking on People Posters, Inc. "Those were heady days in the poster world."
So far Blake Dunking on People Posters, Inc. plans to only produce posters of Blake Griffin dunking on people, but Stanton says they may branch out if sales are strong.
"We've had discussions about maybe doing posters of Blake Griffin missing dunks one day, too," he said. "Even his missed dunks are pretty awesome. And in a poster you really can't tell if he's about to clank it off the rim. You just see him flying through the air and the defender looking stupid with Blake's balls in his face."
Chris Paul really earned that second assist.
