Jaw-dropping dunks have become so common place in Lob City that Jamal Crawford opted to pass the ball between his legs before setting up Blake Griffin for an alley-oop slam because he ... "might as well."

"I got the best jumper in the world, so might as well get creative." Crawford said after the Clippers' 117-101 victory over the Bucks on Wednesday night, via ESPN's J.A. Adande.

The Clippers led by 15 with 6:20 remaining in the game when a turnover by Monta Ellis resulted in a two-on-none fast break. After receiving an outlet pass, Crawford brought the ball through his legs and tossed it up for "the best jumper in the world."

Griffin caught the ball as he rose toward the rim and threw down a ferocious one-handed, windmill dunk, bringing the crowd and the Clippers bench to their feet.

"He didn't even look back. He threw it a little low and it was close to the rim. It was a spur of the moment thing," Griffin said after the game, per the Associated Press. "Sometimes he does some things that are unbelievable. Besides all the flash, he's been efficient for us."

While LeBron James' pre-game throwdowns and his highlight reel alley-oop connections with Dwyane Wade have rightfully garnered attention all season, this play might have topped any dunk from South Beach.

Did Crawford and Griffin complete the best alley-oop slam of the season? Here are some of the most impressive alley-oops dunks from the 2012-2013 campaign. How do they compare?
