With last night's hoopla (pardon the pun) of the NBA 2011 Slam Dunk Contest, I had to share this video of Blake Griffins jumping over a Kia. Did I say Hoopla? Oh yes, a blue robed, gospel choir singing, crowd cheering, and announcer's play by play.
Not only was there news every where I turned, I had phone calls asking if I had seen this. A lot of hype but it is pretty cool. About 41-45 seconds into video is where the action is Griffins catches the ball mid air near the car's sunroof... slams it into the basket and hangs from the hoop for a split second before he lowers himself to stand on the cars hood at the end. You can watch it here - make sure to not try this at home!
All the endlines are saying that Blake jumped over the KIA. Do you think this qualifies as jumping "over" the Kia? Words are funny things and it all depends on what your definition of "is" is.
