Metta World Peace wants Blake Griffin to posterize him

For those struggling with holiday gift ideas, look no further than a poster highlighting Clippers forward Blake Griffin dunking over Lakers forward Metta World Peace.

The only catch: The poster hasn't come out yet. But it will, at least if you take World Peace's claim seriously that he wants Griffin to posterize him.

"I want to be in the poster," World Peace said. "I'm not going to let him, but I can't stop him. I can't stop him from dunking. He'll jump over me."

World Peace made similar claims last season, but it didn't happen. But with the Lakers playing the Clippers in two preseason games next week on Monday and Wednesday, it's best that World Peace allows this to happen so it doesn't cost them in an actual game. And so last-minute shoppers have a gift idea.
