Can someone PLEASE tell me how LBJ is going to get hurt dunking on an open rim? He doesn't get hurt doing it in games? Why not throw down some nasty dunks give the fans what they want? If he gets hurt dunking in the contest then he deserved it cuz he should be doing it and giving money to charity at the same time.
Fact is he probably would get a million dollars from a network if he was going to dunk!
LBJ get your head out or your bum hole and just do 3 sweet dunks, win or lose. We don't expect you to jump from the free throw line like MJ. Just some sick windmills or an ally pop over a toyota tundra, no kia optima's this time!
he'd win cuz of his name only. I don't believe LBJ to be as creative or experimental of a dunker as would be necessary to win by merit. That being said, if the rest of the field is made of names like Terrence Ross, or Gerald Green, it's best he stays out in the name of competitive balance.
Stupid casual fans who buy into the whole 'stars are better cuz I know their names beforehand'
Why are you guys complaining that LeBron isn't doing it when no all star player did it last year? You guys are just haters. Stop finding someone to blame because the dunk contest sucks. People saying LeBron is scared are obvious Kobe fans. No one in their right mind at this point in NBA takes the dunk contest seriously.
Honestly, the dunk contest was only good before youtube and I guess before youtube it was ruined by those And 1 mix tapes. After that people realized that dunking has nothing to do with being a good basketball player and very few of the best dunkers in the world are in the nba, its a skill set that relies purely on athleticism and nothing to do with having the all around game needed to be in the nba.
The truth is, on any given night, there's hundreds of players playing pick up games all around the world that can dunk as good as most nba players and once you are aware of that, watching lebron throw it down on a break isn't all that impressive anymore.
But I was thinking....
Anyone else think they should do a dunk contest WITHOUT nba players, have the BEST dunkers in the world and let the nba players sit back and watch a good show?
Might be the best/only way to save the contect and might actually make nba players more interested.
Jimmy butler , terrance ross, jeremy evans and james white !!!!!!!!!!!!
Actually the only reason Lebron James should do it is because he promised the fans he would do it publicly . We all know Lebron has done a nice job rebuilding his image since the whole villain role . Him doing this would make him more money and make him look good. Its a win win.
