For the first night ever, the ALL HE DOES IS DUNK clan lived in a joy-filled utopia where their criticisms were on point. Of course it took the All Star setting for that description to finally fit Blake Griffin.
Alas, last night, piling on 38 points, tied third for most points in an All Star game, Blake Griffin did what he does best: put on a show for observers with high-flying dunks that’d have a hard time not winning the NBA dunk contest. It’s why he’s perfect for this exhibition style of play where defense is optional and the pace is 7 Seconds or Less on steroids. No one pays attention to the footwork in the post, spacing on the floor, defensive rotations or any of the many things that drive us crazy when done incorrectly the standard game.
Had the Western Conference defeated the East, Griffin would’ve likely been the recipient of the Most Valuable Player award as his 19 made field goals were the most on the team, most to ever be made in the history of the game, toppling Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan. Did I mention he only missed four shots?
Here are his highlights from last night.
And for fans of basketball in general, I’ve decided to throw in the highlights on Kyrie Irving, the 2014 All-Star MVP, Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant because we can never get enough of watching them in this setting of play.
