NBA Dunk Contest Preview: The Griffin Theorem
I'm not a big math guy, but I wasn't terrible either. I remember being in math class, struggling with all the theorems just wishing I had a cheat sheet or something that could help me along and make me more successful.
Well, for Blake Griffin, he has his own cheat sheet in TNT's Kenny "The Jet" Smith.
With "The Jet" as his mentor, they will be able to put together a game plan that will help Griffin soar to victory in the 2011 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.
