Look, up in the sky...

Orlando Magic All-Star Dwight Howard pulled up his jersey to reveal a Superman costume for one of his dunks on the way to defeating last year's dunk champion Gerald Green.

You can't beat it for showmanship, but am I the only one who thinks the dunk itself was a stretch? If you watch this ESPN clip, it looks like he doesn't reach the hoop and throws (doesn't stuff) it through.

Meanwhile, Gerald put a cupcake with a lit candle in it on the rim, and blew out the candle at the peak of his jump. That's good, but as ESPN's Neil Everett said, "I want him to eat the cupcake while he's in midair."
