I have been told that JR Smith will be participating in the Dunk Contest this upcoming week. I guess he is taking Rudy Gay's place, since he was injured, if i I remember correctly. I dont have a link and am not sure when this will be announced but this is what I was told by someone very close to him. Be patient and it should be out eventually.

No you are going to feel like an idiot when

A) The heat miss the playoffs, or if they happen to make it, they get rocked and swept out of the first round.

B) you find NY15METS2006 in bed with your woman.

C) JR Smith is Gay's replacement.

I'm guessing NY15METS2006 is your online boyfriend :)

1. lol you obviously don't follow the Heat, the Heat of this season without Wade will probably do a little bit better but wouldn't be worse than last year's HEAT. they'll make the playoffs this year and won't get swept

2. yeah I'm pretty sure your a female ;)
I clearly said
too late I'm already with her woman and yours too
I put that woman there :p who the **** would I know you were a "female"
this is a male dominated forum

ok if ny15mets2006 is my online bf, that is your new bf because as you said, u had my personal life other. you two go good together

1. i dont follow the heat religiously, but i know of the team and how they play. And dont tell me, without wade, their better. That is stupider than kwame brown saying he got good hands. It just doesnt work like that

2. ok, i didn't understand half of that except that how would you know i was a woman. Well then, maybe you should ask

i follow the NBA. i dont have a favorite team in particular. However, i am from SO*CAL so i do go to LAKERS games, but i am an NBA fan.

They wouldn't make the playoffs but we have Wade so why talk about that...

I couldn't really care less about the dunk contest. Unless you get high profile players in there (Lebron, Kobe, Wade, VC, Roy) I'm not interested. You could throw freaking Malcolm in the Middle out there and I really wouldn't mind. Bottom line, the dunk contest is going to be bogus.

........I'll talk to you guys on Sunday when real basketball resumes :D

2. ....i'll let you think what you want


im not a Lakers fan. im an NBA fan. If i relocate to MIAMI id go to HEAT games. I like the Lakers as much as i like the Knicks or the Celtics or the Kings.

OMG, you cant do worse than the 07-08 heat. Why u takin everything all serious. I also said the 72-73 sixers. they went 9-72 i believe. HAAHA


its cool though. Your heat will be great, win the championship and win the rest as long as Wade + Beasley are in town. Praise the heat.

*on a serious note. The heat sit in the 6th seed. No way they get passed ORLANDO. The heat lack a bigman to handle Dwight. And the magic got too many weapons. Whether its Rashard or Hedo bustin a 3 or jameer takin his opponent off the dribble and driving to the cup.

Now, enough and let this go. This is a JR smith in the dunk contest thread, not anything else

in a 7 game series. At most it goes 6 games. I would say Magic in 5

the heat beat the lakers, and cleveland. yea, they can beat good teams, but in the playoffs, when it really counts, HEAT wont do anything.

02-10-2009, 08:03 PM
Is there some rule that is keeping Andre Iguodala out of this? Or does he not want to participate? He is exciting to watch, I can't figure out why he's not in there.

jr smith is a game dunker, all he's gon do is between the legs dunks like rudy f and nate

:laugh2:

Just a "game dunker". M-kay. But even his in-game dunks can at times be contest worthy material. If you're thinking he can't come up with some flashy dunks for All-Star weekend, I'm thinking maybe you haven't seen a lot of what he can do (in games or contests). So here's a little primer for everybody's reviewing convenience (all short clips):

That was my first reaction when I watched the dunks. JR is a very explosive dunker, but I would much rather see Josh Smith or Iguodala.

DenButsu

Stop shouting. And if you're trying to deny that Smitty has some style and flair to his dunks, then you're just being a hater. In fact, for degree of difficulty, I'd say J.R. is (and Nate is as well, for that matter) easily right up there with Dwight with his dunking. Bit easier to dump it in when you're 6'11". Unfortunately, though, difficulty doesn't count for **** in the dunk contest. They like silly costumes. And big stars.
