Former NBA high flyer Shawn Kemp said in a recent interview with SonicsGate.org that Blake Griffin is not as strong a dunker as the former SuperSonics star was when he played for Seattle.

Griffin, who is considered by many to be the best dunker in the game today, is often compared to a young Shawn Kemp.

In Seattle, Kemp played with future Hall-of-Famer Gary Peyton. Griffin currently plays with All-Star Chris Paul.
