L.A. Clippers rookie Blake Griffin won the 2011 All-Star Slam Dunk Contest with this prime example of talent. Well, some would call it talent, I’d call it being gifted by being born a giant.
Griffin leaps over the bonnet of a Kia Optima and slam dunks the ball in the net. All while a gospel choir sings at the side of the court (I don’t know why, either). And this was good enough to win?
I have to say I’m not all that impressed. Granted I don’t know much about basketball but this doesn’t look all that difficult. I reckon most players in the NBA could do exactly the same stunt.
I couldn’t do it because I’m not a giant who gets paid to lob a ball round for a few minutes each week. So don’t bother asking me to record myself leaping over a car and slam-dunking a basketball in a net. I couldn’t and I also couldn’t be bothered, quite frankly.
Sportsmen in general have it so damn easy. They get paid for doing their job and heaped with praise for doing anything slightly above and beyond.
