Found this on Hoops Hype:
Apparently the NBA sent out an itinerary for All Star Saturday stating that Blake Griffin was the winner of the dunk contest...over an hour before the actual contest took place.
Now I'm not necessarily taking too much out of this as miss-prints and mistakes do happen, but it does add a bit of fuel to the fire for those claiming the contest was rigged.
I thought it was a great contest, where all 4 dunkers could have won. I personally felt McGee should've taken the crown and I think Ibaka and Derozan both had better dunks at points than Griffin did. Ibaka's 45 points for the free-throw line dunk was a joke and I think Derozan pulled off the best non-prop dunks of any of them.
I don't think Griffin winning was a stretch - he had some awesome dunks (even though I think the car dunk at the end was WAY overrated). Like I said, I think any of the 4 could've won. However it does make you think, especially when you read the "Facts about Blake Griffin on All-Star Weekend" section at the bottom of the page.
