NBA Dunk Contest 2011: Blake Griffin Headlines Participants, Possibly Will Jump Over Car

Tonight's 2011 dunk contest will be the fourth and final event of NBA All-Star Saturday Night. The Slam Dunk contest is usually the highlight of the night. There have been a number of great dunks over the years, which SB Nation provides video of, but will tonight's contest see the best of them all?

The Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin plans on jumping over a car on Saturday night. Yes, a car. Jonathan Abrams of the New York Times first reported this. No word yet on the car he'll jump over, but the 6-foot-10 forward has an amazing leaping ability, meaning this isn't as ridiculous as it sounds. Rather, it's kind of awesome.

Toronto's DeMar DeRozan, Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka and Washington's JaVale McGee will oppose him, but I don't know what it would take to out-do jumping over a car. Jumping over two cars side-by-side?

All-Star Saturday Night kicks off at 6:30 p.m. MT on TNT.
