Blake Griffin Dunks All over an Extremely Exuberant Oklahoma Freshman

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 23, 2016

Despite popular opinion, being dunked on by Blake Griffin tickles, and it tickles something fierce. 

The Clippers star seems to be feeling better after his torn meniscus kept him from competing with the rest of the U.S. Men's National Team at the London Olympics. 

One sign of a healthy Griffin is the ability to dunk and cause a room full of people to suddenly lose control and yell violently, as if what they just saw was the most innovative thing imaginable. 

We have a video with just that. 

Normally, a video of Griffin dunking would be thrown atop an ever-growing heap, right next to the pile of videos containing the sorry few who think Tebowing is still an acceptable form of expression. 

The one thing that makes this moment so special is the reaction from Oklahoma Sooners freshman guard Buddy Hield. 

As soon as Griffin throws down the ball into the bucket, Hield loses his mind, devolving into a laughing fit that has me thinking being posterized may in fact be a good thing, maybe even the best of things. 

Who needs world peace when we have a Clippers superstar who can dunk whenever and wherever he chooses. 

Having a bad day? Griffin will dunk on you. 

I now consider Timofey Mozgov, Pau Gasol and Buddy Hield as the luckiest people in the world to know the rare joy of being destroyed in public.
