I just don't get why Stern would pick these losers.... no one really had an amazing dunk... i changed the channel during the dunk contest because of a lack of interest!

I feel like the NBA is going down hill...... all I hear is Hip Hop music in all NBA advertisements. I'm not saying that's a bad thing as i am a fan of Hip Hop but geez luis! what a dumb way to limit your market reach by only going for that certain demographic...! Make the NBA classy and classic again!

no wonder stern projects the league is going to lose 400 million..

Saturday during Allstar weekend was a complete fail!

I expected much more from G-Wall. I also expected much more from DeRozan, considering he said he was saving himself. Shannon doing those horrible *** dunks was expected. I knew he wasn't going to do anything good. And as for Nate, it's half-half.

somebody please create a site about Shannon Brown to never ever be allowed to dunk in a dunk contest ever again.

at the end, worst dunk contest ever.

Next year, Stern forces the issue: LeBron, Dwight, J-Smoove and Iggy compete. Get the dunk contest back on track, this **** is ridiculous. I said Brown won't do **** but as always when you say anything negative about a Laker, I got attacked

DeRozan was garbage, Wallace shouldn't be there, Nate WTF?!

then again it was a big disappointment in general.

It keeps just getting worse and worse. They were like kindergarden dunks, nothing special in any round. After every dunk I literally puked a bucket full of disgrace. what has happened with the once most anticipated all-star weekend feature? I'm ashamed of myself for watching this, DLeague's dunk contest was a 100 times better. They better get it back on track next year:mad:

Dunk contest was weak I agree, Nate showed up, but the other contestants were complete DUDS. Any talk of Derozan being in the Vince Carter mold of high flyer were cemented with a unanimous NO, with that performance...really that last dunk was ********.

Why doesn't somebody put a piece of tape as close to the top of the key as possible and take off? that would be dope. Give Nate his props tho, he tries in this event, but the whole allstar weekend was BUTT.

As for the Hip Hop music...do you hear the other **** that isn't hip hop out these days???? much worse than JayZ I'll tell you that much. Rock music is dead with stake through its heart...music in general really.

I mean what would you rather warm up to? something with at the very least a good beat? or some nickleback?

I agree, worst dunk contest ever. It doesn't help that TNT dropped the ball and had the camera on someone else when DeRozan did the best dunk of the night and we could only see it in replay.

The other thing that doesn't help is having these same old, tired, boring excuses for comentators and analysts, Reggie, Chuck, Kenny and Cheryl should all be booted out, it's time for some fresh blood in there.

I use to be a HUGE NBA fan. Now a days it is a joke. It has turned into street ball with grown men dancing around and acting like fools. You have 7 foot guys that dunk and then scream like they did something impressive. The NBA is a joke. They dont even call half the fouls and it is just horrible to watch. All star weekend is a joke. You have the dunk contest. After a dunk the guys dance. It goes from a dunk contest to a dance off. JUST STUPID.

No joke..I actually DID fall asleep...woke up to a highlight of Nate's pathetic winner.
There were only two quality dunks at all...Demar DeRozan's second...and Nate's second dunk....

DID GERALD WALLACE EVEN CARE TO BE THERE? seriously....looked like the guy was doing warm-ups....WTF? I've seen more excitement on the local playground!!!

I wanna see guys get competitive like Pierce did in the 3-pt contest...not just go thru the motions; killin' time waitin' for the parties to start after the show.

That completly sucked. No enthusiasm at all and all it is boring for the fans. If stern doesn't get some big time players like lbj, iggy, dwight, richardson, durant or someone who brings the crowd into it then I understand why they are losing over 400 mil. And basketball itself is turing into what I like to call african roundball with all the hip hop and other things taking the general sports fan away

magichatnumber9
02-14-2010, 11:28 AM
Durant in the Dunk Contest? Are you people on crack? Lebron yes, Bring back Dwight, Wake Gerald Green up. Durant is my favorite player so I really have to question the basketball validity of some people here.

so bad
they hyped shannon brown some because he was a laker he was terrible
why do they always get no names if your going to do that at least get the and one mix tape people to do the dunk contest
for next year please do this
up to six to eight people
Contestants: Birdman or Jamario Moon dunk off, Nate the great, King James , Amare Stoudimare, VC , Dirk Norwitizki, KG, durantla

Cavs_Fan24
02-14-2010, 11:36 AM
I have never seen a dunk contest where absolutely NOBODY showed interest in competing. That's just terrible. The dunk contest is meant to have fun. Honestly, I bet 90% of the guys in the NBA used to have dunk contests with their friends and teammates in highscjool, college, or even on the street. You would always have to cone up with something cuz you knew that everyone was gonna try.

Next years dunk contest shouldn't be guys that the NBA picks. It should be guys that volunteer so that it's guys that actually wanted to be there.

I think they should make the All Star Weekend more important. For example, winner of dunk contest gets something special, and Stern should be getting the best of the best to be dunking ('Bron, Howard, etc.) and the winner of the East vs. West should have Homecourt advantage in the Finals.

dunk contest was lame. Crash looked like he didn't want to be there at all. Demar and Shannon = HUGE DISAPPOINTMENTS (Especially Shannon). Demar pretty much quit at the end...all he had to do was another thru the legs dunk in some different type of variation (like an alley from weems or something) and he easily would've won...wtf was he thinking ending the contest with the crappy dunks? And where the hell was Jarrett Jack?!?!?!?!?!?!??!:confused: Nate was repeating all the dunks he's done in the past 3 dunk contests he was in...

And wtf happened to Demar's Michael Jackson tribute dunk? and wtf was that "special dunk" that Shannon and Kobe had up there sleeve and didn't wanna reveal during interviews b4 the event? U mean to tell me that they just came up with a basic alley-oop 2 handed dunk? Gimme a damn break. This contest = MISERABLE FAIL.

The dunk contest with Fred Jones and J-Rich ended off horribly with both guys missing final dunks, but at least they actually tried...ffs.

are u guys kidding me? the commentary was by far the best part of the whole show. yea the commentators werent excited, but wtf do u expect when a dunk contest is as crap as that one's?!?!?!?!? The TNT analysts are the most entertaining analysts in sports today....makes absolutely no sense to replace them.

uknowmyname
02-14-2010, 01:46 PM
The dunk contest was pathetic. The NBA needs to change the format to 2 minutes of unlimited dunks. Really everything has been done before, except for the 720, but if they can't fix it to make it more entertaining than get rid of it. Stern should make the stars dunk, I don't care about those no names putting out weak dunks. Give me Lebron, Wade and Josh Smith. Next year I won't waste my time watching. They must not be paying these bums enough to care during all star weekend. The best game was on Friday night, because the rookies and sophs played somewhat competitive and the 3 pt contest was good as always. But the rest of the events were so boring Barkley was having trouble keeping the viewers entertained. I expect the all-star game to be weak also. I'm starting to think that home court advantage during the finals should be the prize for the conference winning the all star game, because the way they play is a joke.

I agree the TNT analysts are the ONLY ones in all sports that I look forward to hearing from.

The reason I love Crash is the reason he did so poorly. He really doesn't like to be flashy, is all about team/doesn't like to be the center of attention, etc.

I was just disappointed in the creativity of the dunks. The only one that showed any sort of creativity was Derozan's dunk off the side of the backboard.

I guess one could argue that the dunk contest has been around for awhile and its hard to think of something that nobody has done yet.

It's true that new ideas can be hard to come by, but i can think of some.

- You make a player jump over a ball rack (or if ball racks are to short, find a taller object) and try and make him catch an alley in mid air. and maybe put in a wind mill to fancy it up.

- Make a partner stand behind the net, and have him lob a pass over the net and then the dunker can fancy it up with what ever dunk he wants.

- That JR smith/Sonny Weems alley attempt from the stands last year wasnt bad.

- Catch a lob while jumping over a partner.

- That Baron Davis headband eye closing dunk wasnt bad either, except the player can pull the headband to close their eyes right before they take off.

Keep in mind, none of my ideas are wacky, unrealistic, and impossible. If a regular basketball fan can think of these ideas, players sure as hell should be able too.

I expected Nate to win. I knew Shannon was overhyped. Wallace wasn't doing ****, look at how unhappy he was. A reverse dunk? Who the hell does that in a dunk contest. At least lob it to yourself, then do that. I think my favorite dunk out of the whole thing was Derozan's dunk off the side of the backboard, then he brought it back under the hoop, but even that was just ehh.

They need to get Dwight, Lebron, J-Rich, and Iggy, or at least some people better than Gerrald Wallace. That was a complete disappointment lmao.

The crowd was more into that game than the dunk competion.lmao. The skills comp was alright. Three point competion should have been the highlight of the show/night. My boy Paul Pierce showed charisma out their and winning the 3 point competion. He was having out their. No one in the dunking competion showed any charisma. Last, what the hell is a "DUNK IN".

I don't like the idea of making the all star game determine who gets home court advantage. Leave it the way it is. It's just an exhibition match. It's for fun. you got player's doing things they dont do in real game like yao shooting three's, shaq crossover, crazy dunks. Plus the player's are already serious on the court becuz everyone wants to get the all star mvp award. so making that rule is not necessary. Maybe for baseball so people can watch the game, but nba has too much star power on the court for people to watch the actual game.

Terrible contest, i didn't even want to watch the final dunks cause i was so bored. I've got 2 ideas to make it better:

1) The NBA should make a pool of say 20 players who actually want to compete and the fans should decide who goes in (i usually hate fan voting but it could work here). Put it up early in the year and see what happens.

2) Have NBA players dunk vs. some of the worlds best via D-league, Globetrotters, or the ABA. This means getting guys like James White and "The Air Up There" to go in. This way you know at least 2 of the dunkers are gonna be good, and are expected to be good, unlike the contestants the NBA gets.

I am at the very least a Boston fan, but I must admit Pierce was good. He at least showed that he WANTED to win, and was very happy when he did so. He made the 3 pt shooting championship look like something that is actually worth TRYING for. Pierce was the best competitor of the whole All-star Saturday Night.

P.S. I love that Celtic Handshake. He usually does it with House everytime I see it and yesterday he did it with KG

I was severely disappointed with DeMar DeRozan. His first dunk was decent while his second one was flat out impressive. After I witnessed that, I was certain he was going to win. Nate Robinson on the other hand, threw down weak! However, he brought that attitude and style that made the crowd cheer for him. All in all, Nate Robinson beat DeMar DeRozan fair and square.

They need to get that excitement back. I remember when vince did his dunks you had people running around going insane. I think the buzz in that building was dead. No one was excited or least one bit pumped. JYD DIDN'T even get up out of his seat once, and chris tucker was asleep in the front row.

just goes to show .. just cus u can dunk and jump high in a game.. doesnt meen u can do anything creative.. ie.. shannon brown wallace derozan.. thats why lebron doesnt join it.. all he can do is 1 hand and 2 hand tomahawks

it is a joke... it has gotten to the point where all thses non creative guys just figure out some stupid props or passes/lobbs to do to make there dunk look cooler then it does

It would be funny if the Amare/Cavs trade went though and nobody knew about except Lebron,Amare,Cavs, & Suns.

So during the game when Lebron's bringing the ball up the court he throws a no look lob alley-oop pass to Amare who throughs it down. So while Kenny and Charles are going crazy and team-mates shocked, Amare takes off his West jersey and under it is an East jersey and goes over to Lebron and does one of those handshakes while everybody stands shocked. West calls a time-out and while Amare goes to the East's bench he proceeds by giving everyone on the West bench the middle finger.

Kenny:"ARE YOU KIDDIN ME!"
Charles:"AMARE DON LOST HIZ DAM MIND! DIS TURRIBLE!"

I just don't get why Stern would pick these losers.... no one really had an amazing dunk... i changed the channel during the dunk contest because of a lack of interest!

I feel like the NBA is going down hill...... all I hear is Hip Hop music in all NBA advertisements. I'm not saying that's a bad thing as i am a fan of Hip Hop but geez luis! what a dumb way to limit your market reach by only going for that certain demographic...! Make the NBA classy and classic again!

no wonder stern projects the league is going to lose 400 million..

Saturday during Allstar weekend was a complete fail!

You are right about the dunk contest. Shannon Brown is just a young guy who can jump high, unlike Nate Robinson's leaping ability coupled with a mass of creativity. DeMar DeRozan was decently creative, but not great. Gerald Wallace is just a power dunker with no creativity. Even Nate's final dunk was nowhere near as good as last year's.
I don't agree with your analysis of the state of the NBA, though. Yes, all American hip hop outside of Brooklyn is basically ********, but the NBA is failing due to the recession from 2007-2009. Everyone's overall buying power is falling, except for countries like China, which pegged their currency to stop inflation.

I think they should make the All Star Weekend more important. For example, winner of dunk contest gets something special, and Stern should be getting the best of the best to be dunking ('Bron, Howard, etc.) and the winner of the East vs. West should have Homecourt advantage in the Finals.

Hell no, hell no, hell no. They do that for MLB and no one likes it. A dunk, or an All-Star win shouldn't predicate anything in the playoffs, period.

1) Reel in Big name players

Lebron. Wade. J-Smoove. Iggy. Rose.

This has been suggested ad nauseum, but this is an important issue that can’t be ignored. Having big name players will mean bigger egos, meaning more competitive spirit. They will draw big crowds, all eyes and ears will be on these athletes that have the ability to put a crowd in the palm of their hand. No more will people think Chris Brown is dunking in a Lakers uniform in order to help clear him from probation. Or will they think The Predator is in a Bobcats uniform dunking in front of Arnold Schwarzenegger promoting the sequel to the movie. No longer will they ask “Gerald who?” or “What’s a Derozan? Some sort of venereal disease?”

2) Have a Company offer a marketing contract.

McDonalds. Vitamin Water. Microsoft. Big Al’s Tires. It doesn’t really matter. But if a big company offers a multiyear deal to the winning slam dunk champion, not only will it give extra incentive for the athletes to win, it allows the company to promote the event, making the event even wider known and more hyped. He wouldn’t want to see Lebron dunking over Bill Gates then subsequently recording the pictures onto his new Microsoft computer?

3) Punish the athlete that gets last place.

No more Gerald Wallace defeatist reverse dunks. Hell no! How about we tell them whoever gets last place will be traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, or will have to be locked in a room with Delonte West and Ron Artest (or better yet an obstacle course similar to Saw, which can also help promote the latest Saw movie)? Or will receive a novelty trophy next to the winner, while to winner gets a kiss from Keeley Hazell while the loser makes out with Bruce Vilanche. The possibilities are endless! But one thing is for sure, the competition who feel like they have no shot at winning going up against a Lebron or Carter, will still have to play hard because no one wants to make out with Brucey.

4) Have different categories.
Points for creativity. Points for difficulty. Points for originality. Points for crowd sound levels. A Dwight Howard would get a perfect 10 for coming out of a telephone booth, but a zero for just doing a regular dunk. A Vince Carter would get a perfect 10 for doing a 360 reverse pump one-handed dunk, but a zero for not doing it in an Elvis outfit.

5) Get the fans more involved

The fans play a huge role in sports. They pump up the athletes, and overall give an energetic ambiance to the game. The louder they are, the more the goosebumps. So in turn, we should also pump up the fans. They scratch our back, we scratch theirs. If last night was any indication, fans are extremely important. I’m sure for a second some of the NBA players there thought they were playing a real game in the Staples Center. So, if a player get a perfect 50, offer them free tacos. Have them also choose a player to cheer for to win before the competition, and if their player wins, they get free dvds of all 13 seasons of The Drew Carry Show, spend a day with DJ Mbenga in the congos, and free tickets to a WNBA playoff game (see how prizes can also help leverage other businesses). It’s a win, win situation for everybody.

But these are just my own ideas, what are yours?

you didn't understand the commentary then...the reason they said that stuff is because they were just as disappointed and pissed off as us fans were at the fact that this dunk contest was a MASSIVE FAIL! Of course they know they can't do those dunks right now, it's called sarcasm. The TNT analysts are real and call it like it is. They don't fill our minds with fake bullcrap saying "oh this was the best dunk contest of all time" just because they work for the TV network. That's why they are the best analysts on TV. If something sucks, they will tell us that it sucks. Look up past dunk contests...the guys usually always scream and get hype when something cool happens. Like Vince Carter's Dunks or J-Rich's Dunks. They aren't naturally dull and boring analysts

These are some good ideas. This year's contest was pretty bad. Robinson's leaping is impressive, and its amazing the dunk he pulled off considering his height, but bottom line is most of the dunks were pretty standard (though grabbing a ball bounced off the side of the board and dunking it on the other side of the rim was pretty impressive).

Having big names may not help, but talented big name athletes in the past (Kobe, Carter, McGrady, Rider) have all put on some VERY impressive shows, so history would suggest the big names would help. James's 580/flat-footed dunk in that commercial was amazing ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsvhNDfubGk )! And Kobe's dunk over a swimming pool was pretty cool (though the wires helped him get a little lift http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOkpfLsCekE lol).

There are some guys that can throw down in the league, and I've seen some of the amazing dunks that various groups of guys have pulled off on youtube, so there's gotta be some new things to do, or at least so how players put their own spin on some classic dunks (under the leg ally-oops and what not). Allowing props in the dunk contest can help (dunking over cheer leaders would be nicer to watch than dunking over other players...lol).

The biggest problems with the dunk contests are that the really talented players are hesitant to get involved in contests where there is a high risk of injury, and I think the dunk contest creates room for some serious injuries and players just don't want to risk it. Also, I think some players aren't too creative and don't want to do dunks that have been done already.

There should be a dunk contest for the Mascots though, I love those tampoline dunks.

Please tell me you seen dwight cash a three ball!?! Sorry I just thought that was too sickk. If he can do that consistently Orlando would have a three point shooting threat in every guy on the floor.

Sorry, I seen him make a three and couldn't help myself.

Dwight has definitely extended his range this year. A bunch of Timmy bank shots, some deeper and more effective hook shots...even some straight up jumpers sunk.

But a three?? I think it's clear we all need to stop *****ing about his lack of offense ;)

ManRam
02-14-2010, 10:02 PM
Craig Sager's suit is lacking a bit. You'd think that for the all-star game he'd really go all out. I'm disappointed.

GspLAL
02-14-2010, 10:03 PM
Yeah I saw it but I don't agree with the Orlando part, they don't need him to shoot threes, they need him to develop consistent post moves to compliment their shooters.

I don't know if you watch the Suns or Warriors or something, but my NBA games tend to have defense.

Meant more so on the excitement level. You have this big huge circus of an opening and intro. Then there seemed to be a large drop off, compared to last year's. Even the play-by-play guys mentioned that there's only like 1 TO in the game, which is odd for an All Star game.
