Wednesday night’s game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks was more of a dunk contest for the Clippers than an actual game. Seemingly every five minutes, there was a Clippers’ player throwing down a nasty dunk or alley-oop.
It just so happened that the three most spectacular dunks involved Chris Kaman. This guy got put on more posters in one game than most NBA players do in one year. You would think he would learn his lesson after the first one, maybe two. But, no, Kaman went all out and did what no player in the NBA actually tries to do — he got put on a hat trick of posters in a single game.
The first dunk comes courtesy of Caron Butler, and Kaman gets absolutely destroyed:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jk1Ax6yq8TI[/youtube]
The second was a monster alley-oop by DeAndre Jordan:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yx1yXgAqNEE[/youtube]
And the third and final poster, came courtesy of the dunking machine Blake Griffin:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJQv0M_GOeY[/youtube]
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what I like to call ‘the Chris Kaman hat trick.’[NBA]
