Blake Griffin has made a habit out of posterizing fellow NBA stars, which Kendrick Perkins discovered the hard way on Monday night. The Los Angeles Clippers dunk master threw down a massive dunk that made the crowd go crazy and made Perkins want to run and hide.

It also sent Twitter into a frenzy. As has become the case with every marquee sporting moment, everybody tweets their immediate reaction to the event. Griffin's highlight-reel dunk was certainly no different.

Not everybody is buying into the hype, however. There was also a vocal minority who couldn't even agree on calling the play a dunk, for example:

Whether it was a dunk or a super-aggressive finger roll, I think everybody can agree on one thing:

That he is, Kasey. That he is.
