The Blake Griffin dunk has destroyed souls all over the place.
Some are calling in the best dunk of the year (slow down, it’s early) but it got me thinking about what are some of the most disrespectful dunks in NBA history. I mean demoralizing and really was a stain on that person’s career. I give you my top 3.
3. Shawn Kemp over Alton Lister
This dunk is so awesome for a few reasons. He catches this at the top of the key, avoids contact by cuffing the ball and then has the explosion to take off and unleash an unholy baptizing on Mr. Lister. And the cherry on top is the point so he knows he got dunked on.
2. Dr. J over Michael Cooper
Now Cooper is one of the best defensive players of the 80s. And I am sure he thought he could alter the shot enough to make it a bright decision to jump, against a normal person it would have been a good idea. Not so much against Dr J. He takes off, rocks the cradle with ball and still has enough hang time to bring it DOWN!
1.Scottie Pippen over Patrick Ewing
My buddy Pete said it best: “this is the most diabolical yam job in the history of mankind.”
