We haven’t been this excited about the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest in a long time. We believe a few posters will come out of this year’s dunk-off—like the incredible Michael Jordan from-the-foul-line dunk poster that memorialized his victory over Dominique Wilkins back in 1988.
Who are we most excited about? Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers, of course. The 6’10” rookie is producing nightly highlights with his power dunks. Nike will release the Blake Griffin 10.0 tee, representing the top score achievable in the contest. The shirt features a cracked stone print graphic of “10.0” and depicts an earthquake measurement on the Richter scale.
The shirt will be available for purchase [$35] @ Nikestore.com on Feb. 19.
