Blake Griffin called his dunk over former Oklahoma City Thunder’s center Kendrick Perkins’ dunk as his most memorable poster ever.
Blake Griffin has been one of the most dynamic and fun to watch players in the league for a while now. He has some of the highest verticals in the league right now, who makes opponents regret jumping along with him.
Recently, the 6-foot-9 power forward decided to join the forces of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden at the Brooklyn Nets. Many believe that the Nets now are an impossible superteam to defeat with the star-studded lineup Brooklyn has.
In an interview, Blake was asked which one of his many monstrous slam dunks was his most memorable one. Griffin explained:
“The one on Kendrick Perkins. He was such a defensive-minded player and he always had the scowl on his face so that makes it a little bit sweeter.”

‘Joining Brooklyn, my goal is to help win a championship’: Blake Griffin
Even before the addition of Blake Griffin, the Nets looked like a deadly team. Adding the former Slam Dunk Contest winner has just given their team more length and strength. Of course, the Nets have gone all in for a championship this year.
Many believe the acquisition of Blake Griffin on the team would be strong on paper but won’t be solving what the Nets actually need. Kendrick Perkins thinks that Griffin “does not move the needle for what the Nets need”.
The Blake Griffin that put me on a poster ain’t walking through the door no time soon. The guy coming to Brooklyn does not move the needle for what the Nets need! Looks good in paper tho, carry on… https://t.co/tpKyIgcHtX

For Blake Griffin, his goals are pretty clear. He wants to win a championship and he wants to win a championship fast. Entering his 11th season this year, we can understand Griffin’s desperations. When asked about his goals with the Nets, Blake stated:
“My only goal is to help win a championship. Some years it’s more realistic than others. But that’s why I came to Brooklyn.”
Adding a former All-Star, the Nets are looking like the most dangerous team in the league right now. The Nets currently are placed 2nd in the Eastern Conference, only 0.5 games behind Philadelphia.
