Slam Dunk-A-Roo

Last night was the 2012 NBA Slam Dunk contest, which in my opinion is one of the most entertaining sporting events to watch – especially during an all-you-can-drink package at your favorite local establishment.

This year’s contestants really got creative and were refreshingly less cheesy than Blake Griffin’s over-the-car dunk from last year. In the end, Utah’s Jeremy Evans took the cake.

Evans, got into the competition as a replacement for injured New York guard Iman Shumpert. Reports show he earned 29 percent of the 3 million votes cast. He beat out Houston’s Chase Budinger, Indiana’s Paul George and Minnesota’s Derrick Williams for the Jazz’s first-ever trophy in the contest.

Evans dunked with a camera on his head, slammed two basketballs as he soared over a seated assistant and rocked a Karl Malone jersey to dunk over comedian Kevin Hart (celebrity all-star MVP) dressed as a mailman.

Another one of my favorite dunks of the night was when Budinger jumped over Mr. P.Diddy. The fact that anyone can jump over another man is unreal, I can’t even jump up 6 stairs.

Jumping over men seemed to be the theme of the evening as Indiana’s Paul George also jumped over two large guys, his Pacers teammates Roy Hibbert and Dahntay Jones.
