i have a feeling dwight is going to repeat and something he said a few weeks back makes me think he might pay tribute to Dr. J..............I wouldn't be surprised to see him break out an afro with the old ABA shorts and ball..........

I heard Nate is going to try a Dunk called KyrpitoNate. to take out The superman. but we all know how many time he has to take attempts to even dunk. so Dwight will take this one again.

All im saying is that little bastard Nate better not win this. Hell he shouldnt even be given a second chance. Love J.R Smith. Would like to see him rock the rim something fierce and take this home. Kapono is taking the 3pt shoot out as well.

Just FYI, J.R. is bringing along Sonny Weems to assist.

Too bad it'll take him 20 trys to do one dunk. like the last time B O R I N G

Who?

The 2nd rounder Denver traded for last summer. He's barely played. But he's a crazy athlete. Anyways, if people see some dude helping J.R. out and wonder who the hell it is, well, that's who the hell it is. :cool:

Sean McG
02-14-2009, 08:28 PM
I think Dwight will.. No question. He showed how prepared for it he was last year, and he probably will win again. Plus, the winner is decided by fan voting, the guy got over 3 million votes to be a starter, unless he completely chokes and can't dunk the ball to save his life, people will vote for him because it's Dwight.

J.r. Smith!!!!

VCaintdead17
02-14-2009, 08:32 PM
JR!!! I love how he is an insane dunker and one of the best three point shooters in the league.

The kid is gonna be a scoring phenom eventually. He just needs to mature and have a better shot selection, but his time will come.

This might be the least excited I've been about a dunk contest ever.

Why do they limit it to only 4 players? It's just dumb.

It should be 8 players. First round, cut it down to 4 and then 2.

Definitely should not have been a 50. I said 46 when I first saw it. It was a good dunk but nothing spectacular. Rudy Fernandez should have had a higher score, his dunk was better than JR's. Boring 1st rd all together.

X12Celtics3
02-14-2009, 11:46 PM
Wow, this dunk contest is awful. The whole 12 ft rim thing was pretty anti-climatic, and not a 50, and using a booster to get to the rim kind of defeats the purpose of a dunk contest, doesn't it?

I think that Smith and Fernandez both had better dunks, despite the amount of tries it took. On Fernandez' dunks it was Gasol's fault not his.

Which is not to take anything away from that dunk, because that's amazing, but to call this a "contest" is a little ridiculous.

The 1st dunk was not a 50, but when a guy dunks two handed off a bounce on a 12ft rim it has to be a 50. Even though it looked easy, like the announcers said there isn't anyone in that arena that can do that. The rest of the dunks this year have been complete garbage.

dwight could of dunked that with two hands.

All in all very disappointing dunk contest and all star Saturday. Dwight was alright, but he makes all of his dunks look to easy. I thought that JR would have been better. Nate was ok, but sort of what I expected. Rudy was surprising and if it didn't take him 100 attempts to make the 2nd dunk, then he would have been in the finals.

Agreed on all points.

Dwight should have won for that 12-footer, though.

If they do get the All-Star lineup in the dunk contest next year, I sure as hell hope that they disallow the use of props and costumes, and just make it evaluated purely on dunking.


The real winner of this contest was Sprite.

Really? That was just an ok dunk for me. Rudy's 1st dunk was close to that one and his 2nd dunk was definitely better. Plus a 2 handed dunk off a bounce pass on a 12ft rim or a double bounce windmill?

JR - was ur traditional 1st round exit competitor..his dunks were alright
Rudy - a 42 for that 2nd dunk r u kidding me?!?!?! that was the best dunk of the night i think...at worst 2nd best...he deserved to advance over nate.
Dwight - first dunk was solid...and the 12 foot dunk was alright...but he didnt do anything with it...he made it look too easy which was the problem..shuda done a windmill or 360...and that last FT line dunk was disappointing.
Nate - his first round dunks sucked but in the finals he stepped up with his kryptonite lol...and altough shudnt of advanced...deserved to win over dwight.

It's that the contest has got away from dunking. The dunk contest used to matter. It used to be all about the dunks. People actually competed. Now it's just a contest about who can shimmy shimmy ya(in costume) the best.

It's boring. Bring back the stars. Get rid of the 2 minute rule and have them compete like back in the days.
