Blake talks about Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Friday, February 24th, 2012

Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin was absolutely insane in last years NBA Sprite Slam Dunk Contest and we all are very upset that he’s not defending his title. I and many others just don’t see how any player in the league could put on a show that he did in 2011. Blake sat down with David Aldridge and talked about his decision to skip this years contest and the rest of the season.

After hearing his interview I can kind of respect his decision. He’s got a very busy weekend competing in the Futures and All-Star game if he added the dunk contest it would be a super busy weekend, with no time to enjoy himself. Blake said he basically wants some down time so he can spend it with his family.

The one thing that should give fans hope though is that Blake said that he may be missing this years contest but he won’t close the door on appearing again.
