I'll take your word for it. I haven't seen any instances of that in the Clipper games I've watched. I still don't think he's as fluid as Kemp was, based on what I've seen of both.

Seattle needs the Sonics back. I say the league moves the Clippers to Seattle and renames them the Sonics.

I'll PM you some clips later. Kemp did it more often but Griffin does have the skillset to do it and has done it.

If Kemp couldn't play ball and could only dunk, he'd have been another Kenny Walker. I think it's the same with anyone else. The NBA's always welcomed prolific dunkers if they could play.

Of course, none of that takes away from the fact that Shawn Kemp is one of my favorite dunkers of all-time. Finding rare clips of his is like discovering gold.

You got it backwards. Kemp came into the league in the 89-90 season. Augmon 91-92. Same era. Remember both of them really well. The Reign Man and Plastic Man.


About Griffin he's taken it coast to coast and finish several times. He has great handles for a PF.

Not that it really matters, since we're both on the same page, but by "behind" I meant Augmon came to the league later; as in he was trailing behind Kemp in terms of NBA arrival.
