Remember, It's An Exhibition, Not A Slam Dunk Competition; Please, No Wagering

One of the many perks of winning the NBA Slam Dunk Competition: You get to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman and attempt a dunk over Biff Henderson.

One of the drawbacks: You have to look at Dave's tie.

Here's 5-foot-9 Nate Robinson (5-8 1/2 in bed without shoes) of the Knicks last night attempting the dunk over the Late Show stage manager, which I hope will become part of the official NBA competition next year. Video of the entire segment is below, including Letterman's revelation that he played pro basketball in the Mexican League with the Guadalajara Flying Serpent Lizards.


(Warning: Clip includes the phrase "We'll be right back after the break with David Spade.").
