Although this was not a rim-rattling dunk, as we've come to expect from the young high-fly act, it was just as impressive.
This latest Griffin move came early in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats. It was a sheer display of athleticism, great footwork and basketball sense.
The 6'10" power forward took advantage of an uneven matchup in the low post. He backed down 6'4" guard Gerald Henderson near the basket, spun 360 degrees and then rose up to make a difficult reverse layup while getting fouled by another Bobcat defender.
And one. It was amazing.
Griffin has emerged as the Clippers' best player this season and is clearly the leading candidate for Rookie of the Year honors.
Some people were concerned that Griffin was starting to tire as we reach the halfway point of the season. Griffin managed to score only 14 points against the Houston Rockets last week. But he showed no signs of fatigue against the Bobcats—he finished as the game's leading scorer with 24 points, 10 rebounds and three assists.
The Clippers won the game 103-88 and improved to an overall 18-28.
Griffin will be participating in this year's Slam Dunk Contest during All-Star Weekend. Will LeBron James be competing against him?
It doesn't really matter, he should just stay away. Griffin's on a mission, and LeBron may be put to shame.
