Superman Returns....to the Slam Dunk Contest...

...but loses.

Last year when Dwight Howard did his "Superman" dunk he has been called Superman since. This year in the Slam Dunk Contest, he came out of a phone booth dress in a Superman cape to the Superman theme and dunked on a 12 foot rim(regulation is 10 ft.) easily. But didn't win.

Why didn't he win? Nate Robinson beat him. Dwight Howard is 6'11". Nate Robinson is 5'9". How did Nate Robinson win it? He finished by dunking over top of the 6'11" Dwight Howard while he was wearing his Superman cape. Nate Robinson went in the back to change before his dunk and came out in a green New York Knicks uniform, with green shoes, a green arm sleeve and in the final round, a green ball. He dunked over Dwight using the green ball and called himself "Kryptonate" instead of Kryptonite. And won. Here it is.

First, Dwight Howard's dunk from last year to get dubbed "Superman"



Now, this years from Nate Robinson:(it starts at about 1:09, remember, 5'9" over 6'11")



I love the Slam Dunk Contest now that they have Superman themes.

OO-EH,
Kal El
