This wasn’t rocket science, it was pretty obvious the NBA wanted Griffin win and now we know that Kia had a vested interest in him winning.
SB Nation has collected some evidence showing the conspiracy isn’t much of a conspiracy at all.
Anyway, it’s been a few weeks now, but after digesting Kia’s awful ad campaign centered around the dunk contest, I clicked this link. And then this link. And finally, this link. And that’s how I found out about an NBA Press Release that went out before the Dunk Contest, touting an appearance by Slam Dunk winner Blake Griffin. Did someone say… conspiracy?
Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but I would be a little salty, if I was in the competition that I had no chance of winning no matter what I did.
