Shawn was such a beat man... The guy nearly averaged a triple-double for his career: 19 points, 10 rebounds, 9 children & 3 assists

Who’s The Better Dunker: Blake Griffin Or Shawn Kemp?


WHERE WAS BLAKE? This year’s dunk contest set itself up for an inevitable disappointment when the league’s preeminent smashing machine decided not to come through for the fans. Last year, despite what you thought of Griffin’s winning performance, he created excitement, a buzz. This year there was none of that, and we were left with some average guys trying to uncover drama by dunking over small celebrities and turning off all the lights.

We wanted Griffin because he truly is – even in barely a season and a half of basketball – already shaping up to be one of the greatest dunkers ever. But is he better than Shawn Kemp? It’s an easy comparison to make. And the Reign Man gave his take recently, basically saying Blake couldn’t touch him, couldn’t touch his straight-up vert or the way he used to “tomahawk” instead of just “alley-ooping.”

So now we ask: who’s the better dunker? Griffin or Kemp? We argue. You decide.

BLAKE GRIFFIN

Longtime Shawn Kemp fan here, but first-time critic. Well, maybe that’s not right. Choosing between Blake Griffin and Shawn Kemp is any gamers’ dream. So it’s not like I’m going to bash Kemp — after all, I backed him in a who’s better over Amar’e.

This is about believing in Blake.

He’s not the game’s best power forward (see: Love, Kevin), but he is the player who will carry the NBA’s torch the next five years, and that’s all because of his slams. How they’re received by people outside the lines doesn’t warrant rehashing because we know social media turns them into events and Clips games into must-see TV for the first time in … never. They’re outlets Kemp never benefited from (debating which Kemp dunk was better at school the next day isn’t the same as putting it up to a world of debate on Twitter).

But there’s a difference between his dunks and Kemp’s in their intent, and you only need your eyes to see it. Part of the reason we all love Kemp is because his throwdowns had no off switch. Feast or famine. Only one ingredient on these dunks’ labels: power.

Griffin’s are the rare in-air skills that make you question whether his offseason has been spent as much at Cirque du Soleil as Funny Or Die. He’s more artistic with them and more agile in the air. Whereas Kemp knew he was going to mug you right on your face every time, Griffin seems to make up his mind just before he reaches his highest point about how he’s going to posterize you.

Let’s put it in a way those in the City of Angels can appreciate it: Just like some of the comedians he spent time interning with this summer, he’s deft with improvisation. His dunking has the kind of range would-be actors all over Hollywood are taking classes for.

Take this one over Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. During his virtual fly-by of LAX he adjusts over Bynum in a way I don’t know Kemp could have while still delivering the goods.

Describing his flight as artistic doesn’t mean I’m omitting its strength. There’s nothing weak about them (and if you think there is you can just write him on Twitter yourself, hombre).
The difference is whose I’d rather see given the slo-mo Phantom camera treatment. What that reveals is in a splitting-hairs, do-I-have-to-choose face-off between two of the nastiest dunkers alive, Griffin’s acrobatics just getting to the hoop are as worthy for applause as much as the finish.

His versatility I’ve touched on, but what about this: Griffin’s dunks require you to be more versatile, too. Lobs to solo shots, Griffin is more complete, making his the more sensory experience. Kemp is best appreciated by closing the eyes and listening for the audible POP when hand meets rim and the rim mic nearly breaks. Griffin’s you hear coming first from the crowd’s realization that anticipation has met reality. He’s gonna dunk. Then, as you barely believe your eyes, you watch it all unfold, start to finish.

The last sense, of course, is touch — when you hit the keyboard immediately after to tell all your friends about his latest slam.
-ANDREW GREIF

SHAWN KEMP

Shawn Kemp is 42 years old. His best years of basketball were played for an NBA team that no longer exists. He reached his athletic peak sometime around 1995, and hasn’t introduced anything new to the game’s above-the-rim lexicon in more than a decade.

So in a hypothetical dunk-off against the premier aerial assault artist of the Twitter generation, 22-year-old Blake Griffin, of course the writer who just took a dump on whimsical 1990s nostalgia would wholeheartedly endorse … Shawn Kemp.

Promise, it’s not just because I’m from Seattle and witnessed all of Kemp’s career with the Supersonics. It’s not just because I grew up with a “Reign Man” poster in my bedroom and the Reign Man cassette in my VCR. It’s not just because I keep the television tuned into University of Washington blowouts during garbage time, waiting for backup freshman Shawn Kemp Jr. to give me a flashback of what his father used to do here.

It’s honestly because the original Shawn Kemp remains the finest combination of ferocity, grace and bravado to spike a ball through a hoop on an NBA court.

What I remember most about Kemp’s best dunks is that they mattered. The “Lister Blister” was a momentum-changing land mine that paved the way for Seattle’s series-clinching Game 4 win over Golden State in the ‘92 conference quarterfinals. The swinging alley-oop against the Warriors (“He went airborne, defying gravity! What a play! The Reign Man has struck!”) was the eventual game-winning bucket in the final minute of Game 3 in that same series. The reverse cram after which he sat on Dennis Rodman’s head was the exclamation point of Seattle’s do-or-die Game 4 win over the Bulls in the ‘96 NBA Finals.

Scope and importance mean something when judging dunks and dunkers. Kemp captured those moments. Blake Griffin, for the time being, has yet to create such postseason memories.

najupecatljiviji deo teksta za mene>
Competition counts, too. Kemp’s list of dunk victims includes Dikembe Mutombo, Shaquille O’Neal, Rodman and Karl Malone, just off the top of my head. When I think of Griffin’s hit list, I think of Timofey Mozgov, Kendrick Perkins, Danilo Gallinari and Kia Optima(Laughing).

And even when you bring it down to a meaningless level, Kemp still wins. Although Griffin does have an NBA Slam Dunk contest title under his belt, Kemp competed in four of the contests in his career. He never won – his pure power and creativity often losing out to gimmicks and the old big-man contest stigma – but Kemp’s compilation of contest dunks, if you ask me, tops Griffin’s four-dunk display from 2011.

The No. 1 reason why Kemp gets my vote over Griffin, though, is purely a personal perception: Kemp is the only man I’ve ever seen whose dunks defied the laws of measurement. His dunks bent space, if not time.

Maybe it’s just me, and maybe I’m crazy, but when Kemp corralled a rebound, took off like a stock car in the backcourt and skied above nine elite athletes before tattooing the rim, he made everything around him smaller: The court, the basket, the defenders willing to get in the way of the upcoming wreckage, the seemingly insurmountable space between takeoff and landing. Everything else in the world, for those few seconds, shrunk when Shawn Kemp decided to dunk.

Blake Griffin has done some incredible things in his nascent NBA career. He is the real deal.

But as far as I know, he has not yet altered reality.

Meni je skroz kul tekst. Very Happy Rekao sam vec jednom prilikom da Kemp ima vise stila, dok Griffin moze da radi sta hoce, pa cak i da preskoci celu odbranu kao pre neko vece. I najneverovatnije mi je kod Blakea bas ono sto je rekao ovaj prvi, da on u sred leta odluci sta ce da uradi (secas se Dacho ono kad je prekinuo zakucavanje pa je samo polozio preko Lovea XD ). Ovo za konkurenciju mi nije preterani argument, jer sam ubedjen da Griffin to moze da uradi sa Dwightom, Bynumom, Neneom, al opet to nisu centri koji su nekad bili. Ali je problem u tome sto ih izgleda i nece biti neko vreme, pa ce to Kempu uvek ici u korist. S druge strane, koliko Kemp sere po Griffinu jasno se vidi da mu Blake predstavlja najozbiljniju mogucu konkurenciju. Za mene su izjednaceni.
