Ive been watching contest from the last 12 years on TV and noticed a major declined in entertainment year to year. So I started to wonder who will be the participants this year and what they could incorporate to make it more appealing to fans? (Before theyre forced to take a hiatus again) Thoughts and winner predictions for 2011?

so much talent in this years pool, they should have a 16 player playoff or some sort of round robin

I don't see that much talent. A lot of the players you listed aren't good enough dunkers.

Young guns have the Legs and are trying to make a name for themselves. I would love to see a 3on3 half court tourny added to Allstarweek. Get rid of skills challenge and shooting 4 stars.

A team should sign"mr 720"to a ten day contact from the d league.he is part of team flight brothers and is one of the sickest dunkers in the world...he would beat anyone.bet that.

I say a 16 man, one-on-one tourney would be sick. First to seven, win by two, all buckets are worth one. tourney should be played on both ends of the court at the same time. Seedings done by vote totals, any match-up. SG vs C, PG vs SF, etc.

Dunk Contest needs to change. Something needs to be done to make it interesting. Regulation baskests are not going to work. Maybe raise the basket, get some props out there. Maybe hold the event at an indoor pool and do the contest a la the internet fame gained by Pool Domination. It probably won't be entertaining this year that's for sure.

The NBA needs their star players to compete in the dunk contest. Even for the mental aspect of it for the fans, I'm sure that people would be much more geared up to watch LeBron dunk from the free throw line than Shannon Brown disappoint again.

As long as Nate is done, I'm good. He won by default last year, and there is only so many ways he can be creative with his smaller body. The dunk contest is too plain and filled with potential high flyers, rather than the stars who can work a crowd and get everyone riled up. Anyone remember Carter posing after his spectacular dunks? Those are moments that last and make great contests, not Demar Derozan walking off the court after his 3rd windmill of the day.

Jaji
08-24-2010, 02:11 PM
I think LeBron will win it with a performance that rivals Vince Carter's legendary performance. He skipped it his rookie year because of his All-Star snub but I think he's pissed about all the hate he's been getting and will be looking for vengeance in every possible way.

Meh :shrug:. I'll give him a 10 for the last one, maybe. The other 2 were nothing too spectacular.

08-24-2010, 02:20 PM
If we were being serious and realistic:

Derozan: needs to redeem himself.
Westbrook: Arguably the most explosive PG in the league.
Terrence Williams: I'd give him a 10 just for this dunk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6BTWlHqksw)
Paul George: Seems like a rook is always in it.

Can Kobe still get up enough to be considered dunk contest worthy? Was Melo ever considered a great dunker/high flyer?

You at least need somewhat household names (and high flyers, Melo and Durant = ehh). LeBron, Dwight, Iguodala, Wall, Gay, Josh Smith... and then maybe for a wrinkle or something you could have the European dunk champ and the college dunk champ (if allowed by NCAA) as the 7th and 8th spots.

Melo and Kobe might not be the "Star" dunkers but the name alone will have people watching.

The D League dunk contest is way better then the NBA.

.Josh Smith
.Amare Stoudimire

Winner: LeBron James

Well to be honest with you, I have seen videos of Melo dunking on people, also Melo wants to get his name out there with all the other 1st tier NBA stars like Lebron and Kobe so he would step up his game and I believe Kobe with his mentality would bring a lot more than anyone expects.
