They need more than 4 guys in the contest. They use to always have at least 7-8 guys with 3 rounds.

I totally agree. LeBron, Iggy, Vinsanity, Kobe, J-Rich, D-Wade, Superman, and Lex Luther.

What do you think about that contest? It would be insane.

I know exactly what LeBron is doing. He wants to hype himself up even more right before he hits the FA market in 2010. Don't be suprised if he pulls out and then is announced at the last second. Thats just his style.

LeBron might be talked about alot and overhyped, but you can't worship Derrick Rose and not LeBron James. He's obviously the better player. Anyone with an ounce of basketball knowledge knows that LeBron is better at nearly every skill in the sport. Wishing an injury on someone isn't cool either.

lebron will most likely win it next year.

But was it just me, or did the score guys suck? rudy's dunk from behind the backboard was pretty sweet. Then he gets like a 42. Then nate jumps off a guys back and does a regular windmill that every player in the leauge can do, and he gets like a 50.

Yeah, it was pretty obvious they were punishing Rudy for missing all those other times. I don't think they're supposed to do that technically though.

Am I the only one that thought Lebron James was upstaging Nate and Dwight by announcing it in between the final to dunks? It seemed like he was trying to make the event all about him even though he wasn't in it. For women that would be like getting engaged at someones wedding shower.

I would like to See Lebron James, Josh Smith, Dwight Howard, Iggy, Kobe, Wade, J-Rich, Amare Stoudemire and Blake Griffen(if he goes to the draft) in the dunk contest and i know only 4 can compete dese days and it looks like dey want rookies in the draft too which should and would be Blake but i think its time to change rules now because i wanna see that dunk contest

Before he was "asked the question by the lady", Kenny smith said Lebron told him after Dwights 12ft dunk that he wants in next year. youre telling me that Lebron didnt know what he was doing telling the TNT live on-air broadcasters during the finals? I find it hard to believe that Lebron didnt think he would get immediate attention and on-air acknowledgement. That just my take on it. Dont get me wrong, I like the idea of him being in it. I just think he couldve waited till after the final dunk. Thats all.

take out Nate and put in Iggy, Dwight or Josh Smith and I would agree. Just sucks, because it will never happen...not to mention that Vince and JRich are much older now and have lost some of the explosiveness.

02-15-2009, 01:03 AM
K first off i agree completely with^

2nd) ur not gonna see kobe or vince or even amare.....there is so much time left that u dont knw anything could happen and lebron might not even be in it

maybe iggy might be in it.......but iunno i just wont believe it t'ill its all-star week-end in dallad

3rd) Nate "Lex Luther" Robinson didnt sound so confident to comeback.....who can blame him? its his 3rd time coming back and personally....i think his gas tank is out, no more ideas for him and i've seen his dunks and they're so repetitive

dre1990
02-15-2009, 01:11 AM
Nate Robinson
Dwayne Wade
LeBron James
Dwight Howard

Thta sounds about right.

twoearl
02-15-2009, 01:15 AM
yeah Lex Luthor will NOT be in it next year. He is done. He cant do that many dunks.

I dont think Lebron will win, he is not a flashy dunky he is all power. He is kinda like a shorter version of amare.

My friends and I felt the same exact way. Lebron wasn't getting his precious attention so he tried to upstage Dwight and Nate's moment. I am also pretty damn sure that this arrogant prick planned on doing this beforehand. He waited until things started to get real good and then made his announcement. What an attention whore. :pity:

I see what you saying, but think about it from Vince Carter's shoes. You are 30 something and a long list of injuries. You can't jump as high as you used to. Would you go out there and embarrass yourself in front of all those people and tarnish your legacy as the best dunker of all time.

VC is done.

Yeah I see where you are coming from but he has still shown he can be big time dunker in a game situation and the clips I have seen of him in practice still show he can throw it down...maybe not as good as 2000 but still good. I am excited to see what Lebron can do but I dont think a player will ever beat what Vince Carter did in 2000.

Guys Vince and Kobe are not going to be in it. They getting along in their careers. I doubt Vince can still pull off the things he did 9 years ago...also Kobe will be 31. I see LeBron, Josh Smith, Russell Westbrook (Dude is NASTY), Dwight Howard, Nate, maybe Wade...think guys that are 19-25

I don't think Nate Robinson has anything left in his repertoire or anything left to prove for that matter. He won it twice and I bet he would much rather be an "ALL STAR" than a dunk contest participant. Now THAT would be much harder than dunking over Howard, but yes that dunk was ridiculous whichever way you slice it. Someone already made a signature out of it, it looked pretty sweet.
