Blake Griffin Posterizes Kendrick Perkins With NBA Dunk of the Year, Even Amazes LeBron James (Video)

Blake Griffin's had some memorable dunks in his young NBA career, but he may have topped them all against the Oklahoma City Thunder late Monday night.

Griffin took a feed from point guard Chris Paul and rose up, posterizing Thunder center — and former Celtics big man — Kendrick Perkins. The dunk drew a wild response from the L.A. crowd, but the reaction on Twitter was even crazier.

In fact, the dunk was so emphatic, so nasty and so unheard of that LeBron James willingly handed over the top spot on the SportsCenter Top 10 list which James had earned earlier in the night.

"Dunk of the Year!! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!! Wow!! I guess I'm #2 now. Move over #6," James tweeted.

Check out the dunk below, and try to respond with something other than, "Wow!" I dare you.
