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.



Here's the slow motion replay with two angles of Griffin posterizing Perkins from the Clippers broadcast.

Here's one final multi-angle remix from the Clippers broadcast.



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.

Bunch of haters hating on sports message boards for no reason. Surprise, surprise. It was filthy, disgustingly awesome dunk. Enjoy it and move on with life. People discussing whether it was "technically" a dunk. Jesus. Lives are available for you to acquire. Get on it.

vikings you are stupider than that dunk. if what you say is the case, then Dr.J around the backboard reverse layup was just 2points and nothing else, and Darryl Dawkins backboard shattering dunk was just 2pts, and Michael Jordan's double clutch switch hand layup was just two points, and Dominique Wilkins dunk on Kevin Mchale was just 2pt.

Just shut up and enjoy the highlights.

It was a dunk, his hand went across the rim. It wasn't a clean dunk but it was as dunk.
P.S Stephen A Smith is a idiot!

 I would vote yes if it was really a dunk.  Impressive yes, but he was'nt dunking, he threw it in.  Just like Dwight Howards dunk in the slam dunk contest.  No worries, he will connect on one soon that will make us forget about this one!

Awesome athleticism. But it wasn't a power dunk.
Yes, it was a dunk, but watching it (on 5 different video clips) you can see he barely "officially" dunked it. Technically it's a dunk because his hand hit the rim, but at that point of the play, his "power" move was already finished. He could have followed through with the power and completed a MONSTER dunk and then I'd rate it higher up. Top 10 of all time? No Way.
It was maybe a top 10 facial, but not a top 10 dunk.

If it looks like a dunk, sounds like a dunk and tastes like a dunk (just ask Perkins), then it's a dunk.  Rock on Griffin.
