We all knew Blake Griffin was a beast. We all knew that his ability to throw down massive dunks was a thing of absolute beauty.
We did not know that he could own your soul with a dunk so amazing and powerful that there are no words to describe it.
Being dubbed "The Dunk," Griffin threw one down so strong that he is the next beast in the Kobe System. The dunk was so loud, people in China heard it and went out to buy a Kia so as not to offend the great Dragon Griffin.
The dunk was so insane that earthquakes in California bowed down to Griffin after the game.
In fact, in a strange twist of irony, that dunk created more Thunder than the boys from Oklahoma City ever have.
Griffin is, by far and away, one of the most talented and entertaining players ever to play in the NBA's modern era.
I saw him lead his Oklahoma team to a victory over Syracuse in the NCAA Tournament, but thought he would not pan out in the NBA, going the way of the likes of Greg Oden.
Griffin is a monster. Lob City is for real and maybe the beast that is Griffin will be enough to save the Los Angeles Clippers franchise.
