Los Angeles Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin threw down the dunk of the 2011-2012 season by going up and over Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins during a game at the Staples Center on Monday night. The dunk was reminiscent of his famous dunk from last season, when he went up and over then New York Knicks center Timofey Mozgov.

Miami Heat All-Star forward LeBron James immediately tweeted: "Dunk of the Year!! Blake Griffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!! Wow!! I guess I'm #2 now. Move over #6." James is referring to his dunk on Sunday night when he jumped completely over Chicago Bulls guard John Lucas III to complete an alley-oop from All-Star guard Dwyane Wade.

Griffin won the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest when he jumped over a Kia and caught an alley-oop from then teammate Baron Davis.

Here's the in-game video feed from the Thunder broadcast of Blake Griffin's dunk over Kendrick Perkins.

Now, just for fun, here's a mash-up with Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki's hilarious color commentary from last week's alley-oop from Jason Terry to Brandan Wright on top of the Griffin dunk.

That is the 4th best dunk iv ever witnessed !! Absolutly amazing !!! Tha only ducks iv seen better than that was T Mac's dunk on Shawn Bradley a long time ago and coming in at # 2 when Dominique dunked on the whole Bucks team during the 80's and #1 has to be Hakim Warrick in college when he just turned around from the left block and jumped over the 7 fter.

What makes it crazy is that Perkins jumps up and goes down, but Griffin goes up, levitates, dunks the ball, has a cheeseburger and a Diet Coke, then comes down. UNREAL.

He took off from the edge of the paint and dunked over someone who is 6'10" and at least 250 lbs while being shoved in the chest/hit in the face. I know he probably should have thrown in a front flip for style points to make the dunk more to your liking, but this isn't something that happens daily.

Is it really the dunk of the year when he rattles it home? I want to see the ball hurtling to the floor at warp speed for the dunk of the year.
