Crazy: Blake Griffin could dunk pretty well in high school, too (videos)

And here I thought Los Angeles Clippers dunkadelic slammer-jammer Blake Griffin picked up this slam dunking skill while tinkering around with his game during college or something. But no. The kid could ball way back when during his days attending Edmond (Okla.) Oklahoma Christian School.

The video above is from a recent episode of Oklahoma High School Sports Express which centered on Griffin as he talked about the good old days in high school, before he went on to dominate in college at Oklahoma.

(cue up “Glory Days” by Springsteen, promptly reconsider, punch self in the gut for thinking of it)

And if the above displays of Griffin’s dunking prowess in high school are insufficient and leave you wanting further documentation, check out the unbelievable alley-oop that follows:

Pretty impressive. He reminds me a bit of myself back when I was in high school. In that we were both teenagers during those high school years. Other than that, not so much.
