The hood of a car isn't very high.
Any of the other three participants could have slammed the ball through the rim while jumping over the car. Griffin was just the most popular.
While I admit that it was pretty cool, it honestly wasn't too impressive. But he won anyway.
Serge Ibaka, a contestant in last year's competition, complained that the contest was too much about props, and he's right.
The rookie Griffin took the NBA by storm last year and he's probably coming back to defend his title.
The league will surely keep him in the contest to see if he can win twice in a row. More people will watch it if he does, bringing back the fans that the league may be losing during the current lockout.
Griffin is one of the most athletic big men in the league, and he will surely wow us again.
But jumping over a Kia just isn't going to cut it anymore.
