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.

You need to look at the play again.Perkins went at  Blake and reacted too slow to meet him in the air, thereby causing the foul.

Maybe that's how Lebron really feels, and that's his opinion.  Or maybe he's just being humble.  Either way, I'm entitiled to my opinion and you're entitled to take Lebron's tweet as how he really feels, and not as he wants to be percieved.

The "Me, Me, Me"of the NBA.  I remember the days when they actually played basketball and not jungle ball.

Agreed that this is an impressive display of athleticism. . . dude got some serious ups on that play.  But is this realy a "dunk" - he kind of just threw the ball in.  I prefer to see dunks where the player actually gets to the rim.

This is a great dunk over a really, really good defensive player. Yes I liked Lebrons dunk over the guy from the Bulls too. but if you want to compare look at two factors. 1. Griffins dunk was a total facial - meaning that the defender was trying to block his shot, Lebron jumped over a defender that was sleepwalkin on the court and 2. The average fan knows who Kendrick Perkins is, could you name the guy Lebron jumped over before that dunk? Don't get me wrong both were excellent dunks.
