Shawn Kemp not too impressed with Blake Griffin's dunk

From Wire Reports Published: February 23, 2011

Former NBA player Shawn Kemp didn't think much of Blake Griffin's performance in the Slam Dunk Contest.

The 41-year-old Kemp, who participated in the contest four times as a player but never won, joined Seattle's Sports Radio 950 KJR in Seattle with Dave Mahler and Ian Furness on Wednesday and called Griffin's final dunk “weak.”

“I'm a big Blake Griffin fan, but that dunk at the contest might've been the weakest dunk in the dunk contest that I've seen in a long time," Kemp said. “I love the choir and all that stuff was great, but you at least gotta jump over the car though, right?”

Griffin, a former OU and Oklahoma Christian School standout, jumped over a car, took an alley-oop pass from teammate Baron Davis and threw down the dunk — all while a choir sang “I Believe I Can Fly.”

Kemp said that he could jump over a car.

"I'm 41 years old and right now I could do it. Two Smart Cars," he said.
