My initial reaction to this years dunk contest is; the best ever. For the first time in a long while everybody brought something to the table. There wasn’t any over the top hype without excellent dunks like there has been in the pass. Blake Griffin killed it as we all knew he would.

He had 2010′s best album, best album cover, and best tweets. And now, in the midst of a relatively silent period for Ye, an in-the-know tipster tells us he’ll make a surprise appearance during Rihanna’s halftime show at the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Sunday.
And, yes, Rihanna will know about this surprise appearance beforehand. We think.
Kanye is a Bulls fan, but he’s an even bigger Kobe fan. West sat courtside at last Friday’s Knicks-Lakers game, and our source also says the two will have some kind of star-studded event this weekend. Anyone have the energy for another bounty hunt? The weather will be nicer in Los Angeles.
On Sunday, expect to hear “All of the Lights,” the thumping Kanye track which featured Rihanna, Elton John and Fergie and Alicia Keys and a bunch of other people who are professional musicians.
