Blake Griffin Not Being Easy on Mike Beasley

May 12, 2011

The McDonald’s All-American festivities are always worth a watch. Every year they’re loaded with young kids who will be in the NBA and showcase a select few destined for superstardom in the Association. This clip alone sports cameos from OJ Mayo, Derrick Rose, Kevin Love, and Michael Beasley, but the star of the show is Mr. Blake Griffin. Blake starts out with a couple of tame dunks, still physically impressive but not high degree of difficulty maneuvers, before busting out his trademark combination of theatrics and brute force. That between-the-legs pass to himself off the backboard would play in a dunk contest at any level. But it’s the next one where he catches in mid-air, turns, and throws down that shows the kind of rare athleticism that’ll make you cringe in your computer chair.

Hat tip to Chitwood and Hobbs on the video find.

As I’m getting myself warmed up for the start of the NBA season, I loved hearkening back to the a few years ago and seeing these players in their younger years! Excited to see what Blake G does this year.

Taking on a playing career filled with pathetic matchups like Craig Ehlo, John Starks, Bryon Russell, and Danny Ainge…I have to rate Michael jordan way behind Kobe bryant…Any viewpoints in regards to this particular area of discussion?
