Is it time for ESPN to consider a separate category for Blake Griffin dunk highlights. The former Sooner is a threat to take over the Top 10 Plays every night the Clippers play. How about The Daily Dunk, powered by Blake Griffin.
Watch last night’s highlight slam (above) and then consider Griffin’s soaring popularity:
– Clipper fans are now booing teammates for not passing to him. Clippers fans have always booed, the difference is why they’re booing.
– Opposing coaches are underrating him by comparing him to established superstars. Who thought getting compared to Amare Stoudemire would be a come down, but who has seen Amare soar like this? Of course, a certain Oklahoman staff member (who shall remain nameless, for now) once compared Blake to Udonis Haslem…
– Baron Davis drew his name in the Clippers’ Christmas gift exchange and got the former Oklahoma star a very useful gift.
Find out what the gift was in Los Angeles Times beat writer Lisa Dillman’s Clippers FYI package today. It’s all Blake, all the time. Here’s that dispatch in its entirety.
