Blake Griffin’s preseason exploits proved that he could dunk very well. But if for some reason you were wondering if that would translate in to regular season slamming success, rest assured that it did. As you can see above, it translated very well. Rosetta Stone well.

But he’s not the only rookie who got down with a nasty dunk. Wesley Johnson of the Timberwolves had a fairly memorable first NBA basket.
