NBA All-Star Weekend 2011 ‘Slam Dunk Contest’
This Slam Dunk Contest is one of the most anticipated events of the annual NBA All-Star Weekend. The ridiculous dunks combine professional level athleticism with dazzling showmanship. This year’s most absurd dunk saw LA Clipper’s star Blake Griffin jumping over the bonnet of a car, catching a ball that team mate Baron Davis tossed out of the sunroof, then jamming it hard into the basket – all while a live choir sang R. Kelly’s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’. Yes, theatrics won this year’s dunk contest. Check it out along with a recap of all the other highlights in these videos.
