IMO Gerald Green should not be in it ever again, he is boring and his dunks weren't even that spectacular.

I want Howard, Lebron, Iggy and ___. Josh Smith, S.T.A.T, or anyone else who is a sick dunker.

Jason Richardson should compete once again in the dunk competition because he's one of the most creative dunker in the history of the NBA. And if only Vince is a few years younger i want to see him destroy Superman Dwight Howard.

i wont to see lebron in the dunk competition

He's a good in game dunker, but he's not creative enough to win the Slamdunk Competition in the NBA unless he will wear a Spiderman Costume, and i believe that LeBron is also capable of performing a between the legs dunk.

Lebron, D. Howard, J. Richardson, G. Green, and Vince Carter. I know Carter is getting old, it would have been great if he had competed after he won the contest.

Lebron, Howard, Kobe, and Smith. Some interesting storylines. Kobe v. Lebron. Can Kobe win another Slam Dunk title? Can Howard repeat? Can Smith get another one? How will Lebron perform in his first Slam Dunk competition?

Dwight, Moon, N Young, and J. Alexander. I hear he has some crazy hops.

Green is much better than Moon. He has no creativity. He is just long and lanky

In what way? To be honest, I don't know what the hell Moon was doing, I don't know why he didn't do the behind the free throw line dunk, I'm pretty sure he can do it. Have you seen that rebound against San Antonio? It's on youtube. Anyways, the year Gerald Green won was because all the competitors were crap excluding Howard and cause the judges did not know what the hell he was doing. Green's birthday cake was the dumbest thing I've ever seen in the dunk contest. It's not hard for a basketball athlete I assume to jump and blow air. The rest of his dunks were just copies of old ones with dumb attachments. Taking off his shoes? That's stupid. I'm also sick of all his vintage vibe dunks with wearing jerseys of retired players and such, that involves no creativity. Damn, make up your own dunks. Moon and Howard should be back in, along with some explosives rookies maybe or some veterans like Vince Carter. I bet Carter can still dunk better than anyone in the league.

This maybe a stretch but Beasley and Rose have a chance. Both are freakish athletes.

Well... I WANT to see alot of people in it... But considering it is the "Sprite Rising Stars Slam Dunk Contest..." They only allow people in their first three years to participate now... Which is stupid...

JR Giddens
Michael Beasley
Nick Young
Jamario Moon

That's my list of eligible players...

Melo

Bring back vince! i reckon he could still get it done, one of the best dunkers of all time. And what do they actually play horse?

Let each team nominate their best dunker for the competition give them one dunk to start with in the first round and eliminate half the field. Round 2 give them 2 dunks and eliminate 7. Round 3, 2 dunks again and halve the field down to 4. Then for the final round give the remaining 4 3 dunks to try to win it all.

I think a dunk contest like that would rock.

And yeah because we all know the free throw line dunk is very original. Because "NOBODY" has ever done it.:rolleyes::clap: there are really no new dunks. Almost every dunk idea has been done. Its all about how u put your spin on the dunk. I didnt say Moon wasnt an athlete or even a great dunker. Some guys are just better in game dunkers than dunk contest dunkers. And moon is an in game dunker. I love Lebron but i would say he is the same thing which is an in game dunker. Look at his all-american dunk contest. He really didnt do anything special he justs jumps so damn high.

I would love for Kobe to be in the contest just for the hype surrounding it, but I doubt he'd win. This coming from a Kobe fan. He can still throw it down, but he doesn't have the same elevation as the 'young' Kobe.
