Blake Griffin

Evidence of a Dunk Contest

SCANDAL?

2/22/2011 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Blake Griffin is under attack from a fan who claims he FED the Clippers star the idea for the car-jumping alley-oop ... a fan who says he's been snubbed ever since this weekend's Dunk Contest.

The guy with the gripe is Michael Scrivner -- who claims he was watching ESPN earlier this month when he saw Griffin asking fans for dunk ideas ... so he fired off a twitter message to Blake on Feb. 8 specifically outlining the car dunk -- complete with the pass from inside the sun roof.

Now, Scrivner is PISSED that Griffin hasn't given him any credit for the idea -- telling TMZ, "He could have at least given me a shout out!”

Scrivner adds, "If he already had the idea for the dunk, why go on SportsCenter asking for ideas? It would be one thing if I had said to just dunk over a car, but the dunk was spot on everything I suggested.”

So far, no comment from Griffin's camp.

What a loser! What does he expect to come from a shout out? Its sad he had to press release this story to tmz since no one give a sh*t otherwise.

Here is an idea become famous to become famous, dont expect a shout out for a frigging twit. I am sure this will turn into him wanting cash or some sort of memorabilia since this guy is acting like a child.

Mike, give Gloria a call. She can have a press conference and before you know it you will be able to retire. It's the American way.

Everybody wants credit for every single thought that pops into their heads. C'mon, man...you didn't dream up E=mc2; nothing that important. So he used your idea. That's cool. Leave it at that. Whiner.

Btw dont waste your time with his twitter. He had 24 followers and like 2,000 twits on how he is the man since he came up with the idea. So its official the dude is a maniac looking for his 15 seconds of fame.
