We’ve seen a lot of great highlights from Blake Griffin. But last night we dodged a bullet. Had Blake Griffin nailed this one, it would have been devastating to the game of basketball. Every dunk from then after would have been a disappointment. No alley-oop would ever match it. We’d just be going through the motions. Luckily, Blake was kind enough to miss it so we could all keep enjoying the game of basketball and all its oops.  Check it out:

 

It says something that Blake Griffin’s missed dunks are that big of a highlight. But the twisting, rolling double-hander from that far out? That’s pretty insane. Oh, and if you want to see the insane one he did hit last night, here’s that one.

    I don’t know, more than anything that’s just an amazing pass — the one that was finished, that is.

    This dunk still doesnt beat the dunk missed by Shannon Brown as the greatest dunk ever.
