The Slam Dunk Showdown’s in Cleveland on Saturday

The NBA, Sprite and LeBron James are hosting the Slam Dunk Showdown in Cleveland tomorrow at the Marc’s Great American Rib Cook-off and Music Festival.  Fortunately for all those participating, I have recently misplaced my Reebok Pumps so I will actually not be involved in the contest. However, I hope to stop by, and if you’re looking for something to do around the CLE on Saturday, I suggest you check it out. 

Come early though, because this is a picture of the crowd looking to get into last year’s finals…

Quite crowded, as you can see….and below is the video from that final which features hosts LeBron James and Drake, as well as last year’s winner Air Up There…
