from about the 1:10 mark

I do believe that he can possibly do anything that we've seen in NBA dunk contests with his own style and flair despite his height but I'd really like to see him do some stuff we've never seen before, not just that one dunk. Something from Team Flight Bros maybe.

They should fly over Frederic Weis just so he can try to copy Vince Carters Lipton Slam.

I have all the Jordan videos, and the part in "Come Fly With Me", when they slow up all his dunks, I can watch that for hours. Or at least until my girlfriend looks at me like I am ******** and I have to shut it off

He should try dunking over a cut out poster of LeBron James and then just wildly rub the part of his head against his genital area (ala' mozgov dunk) while dunking it in.

I can guarantee he will get all 10's across the board and everyone's respect and admiration forever.

Go for it Blake.

Brent Barry could do that in his prime, albeit with less air. The free throw line dunk is boring, imo.

Why don't they allow team flight brothers to compete, who cares if there not in the NBA.

he couldn't do the hitch, bring the legs up, and look that bad *** though. Not even close. Hell, Dr. J did it, but it was the same "statue of liberty" dunk Barry did. While it was the same takeoff point, that is where the similarities end.

It would actually make the contest relevant again. I say LET THE DUNK. Then these NBA players would have a reason to up the ante again.

It's still a boring dunk.

Not in slow motion with cool music!

I would like to see griffen get better compition in this contest.

the guy has basically already won the whole thing and it hasnt even started yet. who else is in the contest again ? mcgee and jennings ? is this for real ?

You're underestimating the other guys. Jennings has competed in dunk contests before and Serge Ibaka won one in the European League. And I'm sure McGee can come up with some pretty good stuff considering how athletic he is. As long as these guys are creative, they'll give us a show, even if Blake is the overwhelming favorite to win. Overall, it should still be pretty entertaining.

First of all the contestants are not even up to par.. for any dunk contest. 2ndly, we got people like Kenny Smith over-hyping it.

I love Blake, but I hope he isnt the next SHannon brown wen it comes to contests...
anyways I am insanely diggin Blake's dunks but Kenny is wrong.

here is why imo. and yes Im gonna promote my guy.

^I dont think he has the capability of making it look THAT beautiful.

^Blakes dunks are Jaw Dropping. But none have been this mind blowing YET.


any other dunk I could possibly beleive him pulling off if he tried.

IMO The anticipation would be just as high as when VC was about to dunk. The 1st dunk is going to determine everything; sure he can still win if he does something decent, but if he wants to be known as a great dunker he will have to bring something I've never seen before (good luck with that).

i want to see an actual freethrow line dunk in my lifetime please!

anyways i feel like blake griffin can either go Vince Carter and have one of the most memorable performances of all time...or go Shannon Brown and be the most disappointing performance of all time

Donno about most of you guys but I didnt know Jennings could even dunk but good mix here, even goes between the legs, pretty impresive

The only player that has the chance to do something you haven't seen before is McGee. I know a lot of you haven't had the chance to see him play... He's like 7' tall and has a 7'7" wingspan or something crazy like that. He has the leaping ability of Dwight Howard easily and who knows what to expect. I'm not saying he's going to win but he has the best shot at something completely original...

I'm not even a Wizards fan but I follow them because I live in Maryland and they are on local television.

35% of the season and hes the best? I understand you're sipping that kool-aid like water right now, but hes the best ingame dunker after Lebron. Also TBH I was talking about ALLTIME greatest.

I'd like to see him do something new, like how Dwight hit the ball off the board with one hand and dunked with the other in midair (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3yICqskl5A)... Just something different.

Maybe he could try to dunk on Dwight, with Dwight trying to block him... If he lands it, I'd give him 50 for sure.
