Dwight becomes Superman

If the last slide was showmanship from Shaq, then what Dwight Howard did in 2008 took it to a whole new level.

During the 08 Slam Dunk Competition, Dwight Howard stepped inside a toll booth and came out with a superman shirt and cape on. 

It was a completely new spectrum of bravado that delighted the fans and sent the other players out there into fits of laughter. 

And Dwight actually looks like Superman as he flies through the air, his cape lifts in the wind behind him and the center throws the ball in to the hoop he gets so high. 

You can watch Howard fly, and win, here. 

As Kenny Smith says in commentary "Superman is in the building" and he hasn't left yet.
