If you missed the NBA's 2011 Slam Dunk Contest Saturday night (Feb. 19), then you missed All-Star rookie and Blake Griffin dukning over a car (a Kia, for all you product placement-watchdogs out there), to the sounds of a gospel choir singing R. Kelly's
anthem, "I Believe I Can Fly." The only thing that would have turned this into even more of a show-stopping spectacle was the presence of Kells himself.

To be fair -- and as the all-knowing Charles Barkley was the first commentator to point out -- anyone dunking from that distance would naturally have to jump that high, but Griffin still made it look good, and everyone from Lenny Kravitz to Spike Lee jumped out of their seats to salute him.
