Video: Dunk of the year, Blake Griffin destroys Perkins

Jan 31, 2012, 12:20 AM EST

In a season plus of insane Blake Griffin highlights, what he did to Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder Monday night may be the baddest a– of them all.

This was better than the dunk over Timofey Mozgov. First, because Perkins went up and tried to contest it. Second, because it is Kendrick Perkins, one of the most physical, strongest paint defenders in the league.

LeBron James — who dunked over John Lucas on Sunday — tweeted this:

Dunk of the Year!! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!! Wow!! I guess I’m #2 now. Move over #6

Kendrick Perkins took it in stride after the game, saying that if you’re a shot blocker “it happens.”

Just put this on a loop and replay it any time you need a little energy boost.
