As explained to KJR radio in Seattle, and lovingly transcribed by Sports Radio Interviews:
"I'm a big Blake Griffin fan, but that dunk at the contest might've been the weakest dunk in the dunk contest that I've seen in a long time. I love the choir and all that stuff was great, but you at least gotta jump over the car though right? He swung over the car and landed on the hood of the car. I think he should at least be able to jump over the front of the car."
You have to admit, Shawn isn't wrong here.
Sure, Kemp betrayed his talent and ate his way out of the NBA. And sure, petulant behavior of his possibly cost both the SuperSonics and Trail Blazers championship-level contenders back in his time with the team. But Blake's final dunk? It was a pretty big "meh," despite the spectacle of Griffin wheeling the car out.
