Los Angeles Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin threw down the dunk of the 2011-2012 season by going up and over Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins during a game at the Staples Center on Monday night. The dunk was reminiscent of his famous dunk from last season, when he went up and over then New York Knicks center Timofey Mozgov.

Miami Heat All-Star forward LeBron James immediately tweeted: "Dunk of the Year!! Blake Griffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!! Wow!! I guess I'm #2 now. Move over #6." James is referring to his dunk on Sunday night when he jumped completely over Chicago Bulls guard John Lucas III to complete an alley-oop from All-Star guard Dwyane Wade.

Griffin won the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest when he jumped over a Kia and caught an alley-oop from then teammate Baron Davis.

Here's the in-game video feed from the Thunder broadcast of Blake Griffin's dunk over Kendrick Perkins.

Here's the slow motion replay with two angles of Griffin posterizing Perkins from the Clippers broadcast.

Here's the in-game full-speed video from the Clippers broadcast via YouTube user TalkHoops.

Here's one final multi-angle remix from the Clippers broadcast.

Now, just for fun, here's a mash-up with Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki's hilarious color commentary from last week's alley-oop from Jason Terry to Brandan Wright on top of the Griffin dunk.

I find it fascinating when a person, who possesses average intelligence and low self esteem, tries to fool the rest of us into thinking that they're something they're not by attacking someone whose post contains a couple of typographical errors.  You may want to enroll in a public school, where they can teach you better grammar.  Commas are free, you know.

Were here commenting becouse CBS sports is shoving it in our face.  Do we really need 5 video's of this.
Um braniac, you realize that you don't have to watch them right?  Public school product for sure...I think you meant "We are" rather than "were" which indicates to be in the past tense.  Also, you may want to check your spelling - "becouse?"  Also, generally questions end with question marks.  Man I hate ebonics.

It's a dunk. 2 points. I'm pleased with the way Griffin handled himself after the play. It looked like he was just taking it as another basket.

OK. Visualy you gotta say it was nice. Dunk??? We can fight about that forever. In saying all that I don't think it's his best dunk, not even close. It just wasen't a real good look for Perk.

For those who think it was an awesome dunk is purely IDIOT!  It was no DUNK!  He threw the ball in the basket as he elevated and then barely had his fingers tipped on the rim.  It was not a full dunk but a throw down and slipped his fingers on the rim.  You must be IDIOT or need glasses or don't know what a real DUNK is!  Too many idiots in this world!
Dude relax.  Why in the world would anyone get so worked up over a dunk/non-dunk.  Seriously, maybe revisit the ol' priorities if this discussion over something so inane gets you so angry.

Said the obviously emotional hater...

I think you need to look up the word "irrelevant". 

Odd that someone would go through all the trouble to comment on something they claim to be irrelevant.  I think someone has honesty issues.

Haters hate and it is funny..Yeah it was just a dunk but no doubt bring one team who is cocky up and the other team pretty silent and wanting to cover their heads... Dunks can change games ! This was a blow out so not this dunk but no doubt Nba players are on notice not to be the next sportscenter highlight played 24 hours straight..

It was 2 points! It don't matter if it was a dunk or a lay-up! Shawn Kemp never won a championship! Dominique Wilkins never won a NBA championship! Blake Griffin will never win a championship! He don't play defense and his offensive game is limited! Why do you give him so much publicity when Kevin Love is not flashy but the better player? Unbelievable!!
