Los Angeles Clippers rookie forward Blake Griffin caught a pass out of the sunroof of a 2011 Kia Optima from teammate Baron Davis. Griffin easily dunked while the Crenshaw Select Choir sang “I Believe I Can Fly” at midcourt.
“The Saturday night broadcast delivered 8.1 million total viewers, 5.1 million households and a 4.4 rating, Time Warner Inc.’s TNT said in an e-mailed statement today. That’s 49 percent more than last year and 23 percent more than 2009, which set the old record for the 26-year-old event.”
“Viewership peaked at 10.4 million for Griffin’s winning shot. The rookie took a pass through the sunroof of a Kia Optima from Los Angeles Clippers teammate Baron Davis as he leaped over the hood of the car to deliver a two-handed dunk.” – via Bloomberg
