Blake Griffin is a heavy favorite to win the dunk contest tonight. Jon Abrams of the NY Times tweeted that Griffin is planning on leaping over a car. (That has been done before, but not in the dunk contest.) Last night, Griffin had probably the best dunk in the freshman-rookies game, though it mostly had to do with John Wall’s bounce pass.

Mike D’Antoni is still the coach in spirit.
It was time to pivot.
