Blake Griffin, Clippers

A night to remember belonged to Blake Griffin all along. The hometown hero lived up to the hype and won the 2011 Slam Dunk Contest. Despite strong efforts from all four participants, particularly Wizards big man JaVale McGee, Griffin took home the hardware thanks to an array of impressive throwdowns. His signature slam of the night was also his last, dunking over a car while a gospel choir sang "I Believe I Can Fly" at halfcourt.
