NBA Poster Child: Blake Griffin and His 20 Best Dunks of the Year (So Far)

Everyone (except the late, great John Wooden) loves a great dunk, and no one has done it with as much frequency and flair this season as Los Angeles Clippers rookie Blake Griffin.

The 6'10", 250-pound power forward out of Oklahoma came into the NBA with a reputation as a high-flier who can throw down thunderous dunks at any and every opportunity.

Well, after a year off following major knee surgery, Griffin has not only lived up to the expectations, but shattered them like a glass backboard. His averages of 20.8 points and 12.2 rebounds per game are easily the best of any rookie thus far in the 2010-11 season and place him firmly in the conversation to represent the Clips in the 2011 All-Star Game at the team's home gym.

While Griffin may not be an absolute shoe-in to be picked for the game, given the glut of talent at power forward in the West, he will undoubtedly be around to make a splash at the annual Slam Dunk Contest.

For those who have yet to get a scouting report on what Griffin is capable of in the air, and even for those who are well-versed, here's a look at the Poster Child's top 20 dunks in the NBA so far.

Which one do you think is the best?
