So lets say hypothetically that LeBron is in the dunk contest like he claimed he was going to be...other that Dwight Howard who else would you like to see LBJ go up against?

heres a potential list:

Josh Smith
Derrick Rose
Gerald Green
Nate Robinson
J.R. Smith
Rudy Gay
Jamario Moon
Andre Iguadala
Jeff Green
Blake Griffin (Although I dont see him being very creative with his dunking)

Who else do you think would give "King" James and D-Howard a run?

Stern said he likes to give it to rookies and 2nd or 3rd year players with a vet or 2 in there.

Here is my list

Lebron James
Joe Alexander
Russell Westbrook
Demar Derozan

And I really can't see Howard coming back. He didn't want to do it last year if I'm not mistaken.

James White...
I'm going to be seriously disappointed if White's not in the contest. Sometimes I think only reason he's on the Rockets' roster is to get some press when the winner of the contest has a Rockets jersey on.

James White barely has anything else. No shot, nothing. He is a worse Gerald Green but with better dunking. That being said, he won't be on a team.

DERRICK ROSE? LOL what are you, a Bulls fan? He isnt by any stretch of the imagination a GREAT dunker. How dare yu mention him in the same sentence as the Dunk Contest...

i know he is you guys savior, but come on! seriously? Dunk contest? Giving LeBron and D12 a run for their money...no way.

That being said..Jason Richardson would give them a run for their money.

2009-2010 Dunk Contest

Lebron James
Kobe Bryant
Vince Carter
Dwight Howard

that would be pretty sick......... I would also like to see every player get 4 dunks throughout without any elimination that way we can see all the dunks they players have prepared.

i just hope they work on the dunk constest. the jury should be a jury, not a bunch of friends hanging around while there's somebody doing something weird on the court, aka, the kritpnotite thing or the phone box.

i want the best dunkers doing their best show and being judged by a serious jury. if id wanned a circus like act, id to the circus. with all my respect to the circus, by the way.

Yeah I'd agree with you there, he's probably around the same level as Westbrook in terms of dunking maybe a little better, but not athletic enough to be a really great dunker, I think JR Smith is a better dunker and he sucked last year. On that note, J-Rich is probably in my opinion is still one of the top dunkers that can use his athleticism to out dunk people rather than props, maybe one of the last looking back at the last couple of dunk contest. On another note did anyone see nba.com/dunk Sprite is making I guess another dunk contest for Amatuers that are better than anyone in the NBA is right now, you all should know Air up there AKA 720, no one is touch that.

40 in is impressive, but everyone else that they put on that list has a higher vert than that, if he went to the dunk contest he probably wouldn't make it past the second round if he got lucky no offense bulls fans. He'd put down some nice dunks but nothing to really be remembered by.

Raps18-19 Champ

He is kind of like Westbrook who can dunk strong as a PG but doesn't look like he can stay in the air long for a 360 or windmill.

HUH? Listen I am by no means being a hometown guy on this one but you are out of your f'in mind if you think D Rose is not athletic enough to be a good dunker...he would put Westbrook to shame in a dunk contest...analysts say Rose is a mini LBJ so you are sadly mistaken my friend...they only thing that would not make him competitive in this would be that he is in fact DUMB...he might not be creative enough but if someone just told him what to do im sure he could pull off anything you throw at him...just look up D Rose high school highlights and you will see how "UNATHLETIC" he really is...in high school this guy could touch he head on the rim so dont tell me he isn't athletic enough

on another note...LBJ just makes it look too easy that might just kill the dunk contest for years to come lol

He has.

Why do people insist on commenting on players they obviously haven't seen play very much.. It's painfully obvious a lot of people in this thread aren't very familiar with Rose.

As for the topic.. I think having Rose in the contest would inject some life in what's been a very lackluster All star weekend event. But it wouldn't upset me if he weren't in it.

Nate Robinson is done. How can be come back? Seriously. Are you guys forgetting how short he is? He's a freakish leaper at his size but it limits him. What can he do that he hasn't already done? Certainly not enough to win next year's competition. I think LeBron is going to win it on hype alone. He's a power dunker with a little creativity; that's all.

Derrick Rose
Measured in at 6 2.5 and a solid 196 lbs, his wingspan is 6 8 with a 40 vertical. While he may be a little shorter than first thought, he still has good height for a point guard and the rest of his numbers are exceptional. One concern (it may just be an anomaly) is his somewhat slow 11.69s in the lane agility drill, he seems to have great quickness and lateral foot speed and such a high number doesnt seem to fit him.



Russell Westbrook
Usually the least mentioned of the combo group, Westbrook had a very solid day at the scales; nothing astounding and nothing of concern. His height is 6 3.5 and he weighs 192 lbs to go along with a 6 7.75 wingspan and 36.5 vertical. His lane agility and 3/4 sprint times were in the top echelon with 10.98s and 3.08s respectively.



Rose has the bigger Wingspan and Vertical

so yes he can do the dunks westbrook could do

Draco
08-05-2009, 08:08 PM

08-05-2009, 08:08 PM
i think the cupcake was too much for the dunk contest and that the superman was incredible but not a dunk whatsoever....you are only thinking he is overrated due to what people are saying but his year 1 stats were comparable to CP3 and most superstar caliber players make leaps in year 2

back to the dunk contest...LBJ will win on hype alone as stated before...although he might not be the most creative, he will just make it look too easy

Although Nate's obviously not as great as a jumper as this guy, you got to hand it to T-Dub 5'9 guy who can do a 540, making the impossible possible for shorter people everywhere. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3DzQU9oXtY
