Blake Griffin vs. LeBron James: Watch, vote on the better dunk

Blake Griffin's monster jam on Kendrick Perkins during the Clippers' 112-100 victory over Oklahoma City on Monday night is being described by many as the dunk of the year.

The same phrase was being used all day on Monday after Miami's LeBron James electrified the NBA with his one-handed dunk while flying over Chicago's John Lucas III on Sunday night.

Clippers guard Chris Paul said of Griffin's dunk: "That's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen."

And unless Paul was nowhere near a TV or computer all day Monday, he had probably already seen the clip of James literally jumping over Lucas many times before making that comment.

James himself weighed in on the subject via Twitter just after Griffin's big play: "Dunk of the Year!! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!! Wow!! I guess I'm #2 now."

Which do you think is the dunk of the year (or at least the dunk of the first month or so of the season)? Vote in the poll, then leave a comment explaining why you voted the way you did.
