Nate Robinson wins the Slam Dunk Contest after jumping over Dwight Howard: http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/allsta...ory?id=3908104

Howard came out of a phone booth with his Superman cape and dunking on a 12-foot goal. Some are speculating Commish Stern halted his other dunks on that goal out of fear he'd miss and injure himself (a la Clyde Drexler I heard, though I don't remember the incident). The problem is Howard makes it look too easy. The 12-foot dunk was impressive, but looked like a regular dunk to people. Same with his free-throw line dunk. All in all, this should have been shared between him and Robinson. After all, Howard played a big part in Robinson's winning dunk...

Then you have Shaq and Kobe sharing the ASG MVP, which this game will be remembered for after all their feuding...
