My Highlights were when Nate Robinson jumped over Superman Dwight Howard and slams his way to win his second nba slam dunk competition. But Nate, or should I say Kryptonite, did it in a villain type fashion sporting an all green New York Knicks uniform.

And then something was very different. Allen Iverson cut his hair! Well, that was a surprise. I mean, I remember when

Which now brings me to Shaq. This dude is a bowl of jokes. For some reason his intro seemed to be the longest and he was performing with the Jabawokeez! It was pure hilarity and good times. Remember Shaq and Kobe’s lil feud. I’m not entirely sure about their past details, but we all knew that the two didn’t get along. Some sources even suspected it was all for ratings.
