Blake Griffin Scores The Greatest Basket That Never Counted (Video)

The Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin has scored several highlight reel baskets that have counted thus far in his rookie season, but his most incredible basket may very well be the one that didn’t count during last night’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

With four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and his team trailing by 13 points, Griffin went up and over the 6’11 Marcin Gortat for the monster slam, only to be whistled for the offensive foul.  The foul was Griffin’s sixth of the night, as he would foul out in addition to earning a technical foul on the play.

That seems like a rough way to reward a man for creating such a wonderful poster.
