Blake Griffin’s 5 Toughest Defenders To Posterize Dunk On
Marcus Camby- Camby has been a steady quality shot blocker since he entered the NBA in 1996. Camby may not get up as high as he use to, but he does understand how to protect the rim. Camby rotates quickly on help defense, which would make it difficult for Griffin to get a highlight dunk.
Tyson Chandler- Chandler does not do much on the offensive end of the floor, which means most of his efforts would go into trying to prevent Griffin from putting him on a poster. Chandler has excellent anticipation and Griffin will struggle to put him on a poster of a highlight dunk.
Dwight Howard- Howard let Kobe dunk on him early in his career, but now Howard understands how to protect the rim. Griffin would have to go up real high to pull off a dunk over Howard. Superman would view it as a challenge to prevent Griffin from dunking on him.
JaVale McGee- McGee has extremely long arms and is very athletic. McGee is already going to lose the dunk contest to Griffin. McGee is not going to want to allow Griffin to put him on a poster. McGee will be ready to protect the rim against Griffin.
Josh Smith- Smith is one of the most athletic forwards in the NBA. Smith can be a headcase, but is known around the league for his overall defense. Smith is not going to want let Griffin dunk on him, since he is so used to dunking on other players. J Smoove will play his best defense against Griffin.
