Last night on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," a busboy named Ricardo got the best of LA Clippers' Blake Griffin in a grueling round of "pop-a-shot".

Ricardo, who works at West Hollywood's Barney's Beanery, has an uncanny touch with the hoops game. A list of his vanquished includes 2010 MVP Kobe Bryant, 2004 Rookie Of The Year LeBron James, and all-time great Charles Barkley.

To give the 2011 Rookie Of The Year a fighting chance last night, Kimmel made Ricardo don a blindfold for the first time ever. Things were looking good for Griffin after he won the jump ball and scored an easy 57 baskets in thirty seconds. Still, even blindfolded, Ricardo edged past with 60 baskets.

Griffin's excuse? "My wrist started hurting toward the end, so, whatever."
