Blake Griffin posterized Kendrick Perkins in last night's Clippers / Thunder battle. Have you seen a better or bigger dunk this year?  Ever?

On Sunday Lebron had a monster dunk of his own when he jumped over the Bulls' John Lucas on his way to a huge alley op. Yes, you read that right, he jumped over John Lucas.

Do NBA half-time shows influence ticket resale prices?

On TicketsNow the average ticket resale price for Detroit Pistons game featuring T-Pain performing at halftime is nearly 64% higher than average!  It should be noted that they are playing the Miami Heat, and that surely has something to do with the jump, but it is still a huge increase in average.

Has a half-time show ever influenced you in deciding what game you would attend?

Here are some more stats:

·Pi  - Pistons overall average ticket price this season: $69

·       - Average ticket price for Jan. 25 game vs. Miami Heat (T-Pain performing at half-time): $113

·G  - Get-in list price for Feb. 3 Pistons vs. Bucks (Vanilla Ice performing at half-time): $5

dj  I know what you're saying, "I can see Vanilla Ice for only 5 bucks!" Trust me, I was shocked too.  Does this signal a Vanilla Ice comeback? We're not sure either but just in case you can watch the offical "Ice Ice Baby" video below.  Lets kick it:
