Kevin Durant calls monster Griffin dunk “a layup”

Feb 1, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

Kevin Durant was not very talkative after his Thunder squad got their heads handed to them by the Clippers Monday night. Not surprisingly. The entire Thunder team was frustrated.

After the game a reporter asked Durant if he got a good look at that Blake Griffin’s monster dunk over Kendrick Perkins. He responded, “I don’t care about that dunk.” And he was done talking about it.

But he was talking about it again Wednesday, and still was dismissive of the play that wowed everyone else. From the twitter of Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman:

“It was a layup, I think. He threw the ball in and got fouled and made a free throw. So it’s three points at the end of the day… “If it wasn’t against us, maybe I would have said it was a good play.”

Durant is still frustrated. The guy does not like to lose. Besides him, there are a lot of people out there trying to argue because Griffin didn’t touch the rim it wasn’t a dunk. Which is ridiculous.

After the game Kendrick Perkins called it a dunk. He was closest. If he says it was a dunk, it was a dunk. No matter what Durant says.

    First off it was fire but it wasn’t a dunk just like the one over Mosgov. However he has had some beasting dunks and throw downs. A real dunk is how Vince Carter posterizes; Lebrons dunk jumping OVER Lucas was better. Alot of people just recognize the ferociousness of his ability when taking it to the hole. Blake, slam the rock through right so we can see the monster in that dunk!!
