The Clippers' rising star Blake Griffin easily won the 26th dunk contest this year during the NBA's All-Star Star Saturday last month in Los Angeles. In case you missed it, Griffin actually leapt over the hood of a parked car while a nearby choir sang a rendition of "I Believe I Can Fly."
Seems Griffin really can fly.
Unfortunately, the rest of us can't fly--not yet, anyway, until science perfects jet boots. But if you can dream, and if you have access to the 'Net, then you can fly, too--sort of. Keep reading to find out how.

Step 2: Upload a pic of your head to the site.
Step 3: Through some internet wizardly which the Sports Gamer will never understand, your pic will be attached to Griffin's flying body, allowing you to see what you'd look like as a human homing missile zeroing in on the hoop.
There are five different Griffin dunks to choose from, so be sure to try them all.
The results? Definitely chuckle-worthy.
And that's your time-waster of the week. Enjoy.
