Shawn Kemp Hated Blake Griffin's Slam Dunk Contest Performance

If nothing else, Blake Griffin's final dunk to win the Slam Dunk Contest last weekend—where he jumped over a Kia Optima while the Crenshaw Elite Choir serenaded him—was a spectacle. Hell, we're still talking about it almost a week later, so that has to count for something! But, let's be honest: It wasn't all that. And on a Seattle radio show this week, Shawn Kemp (yeah, that Shawn Kemp!) said as much. "I'm a big Blake Griffin fan," he told KJR radio, "but that dunk...might've been the weakest dunk in the dunk contest that I've seen in a long time. I love the choir and all that stuff was great, but you at least gotta jump over the car, though, right? He swung over the car and landed on the hood of the car. I think he should at least be able to jump over the front of the car." We can't believe we're agreeing with a guy who just got his own "Don't Make It Rain" condom, but...we are. Good point, Reign Man. Now, where the hell have you been hiding?! [via Ball Don't Lie]

 

UPDATE: At least one current NBA player doesn't agree with Kemp's assessment. LOL.

Man Shawn Kemp is crazy, he knows damn well he's not jumping over no KIA right now...c'mon sonless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone
