Blake Griffin Busted out the Karl Malone Dunk

Jim Cavan@@JPCavanContributor IMarch 11, 2014

Aside from playing power forward at an elite level, Blake Griffin and Karl Malone don't have a whole heck of a lot in common. Blake has red hair; Karl has no hair. Blake does car commercials; Karl does commercials for...deer scents or something.

Still, it's always nice to see a youngster pay homage to an elder statesman of the craft, as Blake did with this pretty, Mailman-esque slam in the Los Angeles Clippers' 112-105 win over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.
