When is a Kia Optima worth $26k?

It's hard to fathom, but yes, there is a Kia on the market currently selling for that price. And it might get even higher! How could it cost that much you wonder? Does it come with a slew of autographs from the reigning NBA rookie of the year and slam dunk contest winner? Check. Was it leaped over in a single bound while being used as a prop on all-star weekend. Check.
The now famous ride from which Griffin's teammate Baron Davis poked his head out to hand Griffin a ball while the latter was in midair is up for auction. It hasn't quite reached the stakes of the Wayne Gretzky rookie card auction, it still has a few days. And come on, it's still a Kia. I'm pretty sure my boss got a buy-one, get-one deal on those a couple years back.
