Last Monday, Blake Griffin was named the Western Conference’s Player of the Week. Good things happen to guys who average 25.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 4.7 assists in three straight victories.

Picking Griffin’s top 10 career dunks is kind of like choosing Victoria’s Secret’s 10 hottest models or Shakespeare’s 10 best sonnets: you can’t really go wrong, but you’re also guaranteed to leave out some worthy candidates. So with that cowardly disclaimer out of the way, here are the 10 best dunks of Blake Griffin’s career so far.
