Wow! Was that predetermined or what?

First, in the first round, he easily had the worst dunk.

Second, in the second round, he easily had the worst dunk.

Third, in the Finals, that three ball dunk was much better than a plain dunk over a car.....the shortest part of the car mind you.

That final should have clearly been Serge and JaVale.

Ibaka's first round dunk was easily the most under appreciated dunk I have ever seen.

How in the hell did he only get a 45 for that?

EDIT: Double Post.

I will add that the second dunk by Griffin was great IMO. It has been seen before, sure... but he made it SO much better than VC's.

Blake was so over hyped in this dunk contest coming in. imo he wasn't even that good. car dunk was lame.

That was so lame!

Nate Robinson dunked over a 7 footer and Blake jumped over the 2 foot hood of the car.

Blake didn't have the worst dunks in the finals.

It probably was rigged to get Blake to the finals. But the fans were going to vote for him either way.

Shoulda been McGee and Demar in the Finals. Blake SUCKED. McGee had the best performance. Ibaka ft line dunk was NICE.

lol anybody expected anything else?

Look Lebron has took a hughe popularity hit with the decision.
Durant is not performing as godly as expected adn its even in doubt who is wearing the pants Westbrook or him.

Nba and ESPn need a new dude to market up.
Griffin they have chosen.

Derozan and Ibaka robbed. Seriously, what did McGee do? Dunk 3 balls? That's ********.

Derozan was the only one without gimmicks too. Seriously, the NBA should ban all that crap from the contest, and only let them rely on a basket and the person alone.

I'm pissed because we finally had a very, very good contest and Griffin got shoved into the Final despite Serge CLEARLY being better.

Then, his piece of crap dunk beat a CLEARLY better one.

It just makes it seem rigged even though there were amazing dunks from the other participants.

02-20-2011, 12:22 AM
The car dunk was nice, but it should have never gotten that far. Griffen could barely hit his first two dunks which had no creativity or a high degree of difficulty. Totally rigged. Too bad.

Ibaka's FT Line Dunk was probably the best dunk in the whole damn thing and only got a 45?


Blake was more deserving than Nate Robinson in those 2yrs he won....The Dunk Contest made a huge bounce-back after that crap last year.

Griffin's second dunk was horrible. It shoulda got a 40, but since they already got the car, they needed to put him in the finals so they gave Grffin just enough to have 1 more point than demar. Go figure

RIGGED

the NBA knew he was bringing out the car in the finals and they wanted people to see it (even though it was lame and it sucked). so they were pushing him into the finals no matter what.

Ibaka did a dunk that Jordan and Dr. J tried but jumped in front of the line, and Serge only got a 45???? he should have been in the finals instead of Griffin.

Griffin probably had the worst performance tonight. All hype with that kid.

Ibaka got robbed on his FT dunk although his bear thingie was terrible. DeRozan shoulda been on the final. McGee should have won anyway. Griffin's only good dunk was that VC impersonation and the first 2 failures on his first dunk (yea the failures were better than the end product, go figure).

McGee easily won that, so i dont really care about a fan vote.

Derozan and Ibaka were kinda impressive, more so than Blake but the biting toy thing was whack.. Javale does that with pieces of paper easily in practice.

Great dunk competition, but the finals need to be decided by someone else. It's just a popularity vote, so you know Blake is going to win. Also it doesn't hurt with the all-star game being in LA either, but yeah everyone rides Blake Griffin's dick, so of course the award was going to go to him.

Javale McGee can do a behind the line dunk with ease actually.

He is the best dunker because no one else in the contest could do the 3 ball or 2 hoop dunk.

I don't get how anyone didn't think that dunk by McGee with the two balls and hoops was the best. That thing was not only creative, but it wasn't really gimmicky, it was just two balls and two hoops, and all kinds of awesome. Further, McGee was going to do a behind the line dunk, but Ibaka already did it so he had to switch it up.

1. First off, Griffin was not horrible. The 360 in the beginning was very good, not many could do that. The off the side of the backboard was a "replacment" one. He was originally going to do a 360 and almost landed it. Still it was nice. The arm in the rim was VERY NICE, how many athetes can do that. Finally, the car one was really good as well. Jumping over a car, even the hood has never been seen in the dunk contest and if you looked he still had room to fly 5 or 6 more feet. All those saying a person jump would be better, we have seen that about 20 or 30 times, it's old.

In my opinion, yes McGee should have won but people have been robbed year in year out. Instead of complaining, lets be happy that overall, this was one of the best dunk contests of all time if not THE best.

Demar Derozan had 2 really good dunks and got screwed by the judges. Ibaka's monkey dunk was very creative. The free throw line dunk got screwed the most. Julius Erving took a full step inside while Ibaka had a toe on the line and in mid air still had room to go.

McGee deserved to win but so did Griffin. This was a very great dunk contest and I am very excited for the game tommorow.

That may be true, but we've seen people jumping over cars plenty of times in other contests...I thought the way they were pumping it up he was going to go between the legs over the hood or something...not just a regular 2 hand dunk...

All of his other dunks were impressive though.

Griffin's first round windmill for a 46 (the exact number he needed to advance), should go down in history as the most unabashedly rigged thing of all time. That dunk was absolutely generic and weak. If anyone else had done that dunk it wouldn't have been in the 40's.

Definately over hyped but everyone has their limits. People were expecting Griffin to jump over 50 cars while playing the violin and doing Calculus. Also, can't blame him if he didn't wanna jump over the full thing and break his neck. I'm sure the Clippers Organization told him he couldn't.

he was going to do between FT and top of the key. remember Josh Smith tried that a few years ago?

We saw him try those before...

this is the reason you reduce the fan vote or cut it out all together.


the dunk contest was horrible last year, but this year was sick:

that said ibaka easily had a 50 but i sense hate from the judges on that. which would have put ibaka and griffin in a dunk off.

mcgee had 2 of the best 3 dunks all night, his first dunk was the greatest one i ever seen.


griffins car jump was lame as ****, like others have said, he jumped over the hood. i have seen dunk contests even on espn that are not nba contests, and people clear the cab of the car.

but no, every 8 year old in the world has a cell phone today, so they voted for griffin. any fan of basketball, that has seen any other sort of basketball or dunk contests knows that, this dunk was a 7 at best.

BTW the 3 ball dunk wasn't that great, john wall basically shot and McGee tipped it in. The 2 ball dunk was way better and he should've saved that for the end. How many times have you seen someone jump over the hood of a car with someone tossing the ball from the sunroof. Whether you think it was hard or not no one has ever done it before, he just made it look that easy.

I'll give credit to Griffin: He had one great dunk (Arm in Rim), but he used a car. Smart move because bringing out the car = hype points. Add that with how much people love him and he wins.

Derozan and Ibaka should of been in the final, an easy case can be made for McGee. Griffen had some nice dunks, but that jump over the car was NOT a JUMP OVER A CAR, it was JUMP OVER A SMALL PORTION OF A CAR: THE HOOD.

The dunk contest is turning out to be more for something for kids, like presentation, the choirs, and the supermans, the birthday cake.

If you grew up in my era, you would of understood what real dunking is: ie 2000 dunk contest.

Going into it, Vince Carter had the most hype (like Blake), but those other dunkers had some nice dunks. I mean, seeing someone dunk three balls is not impressive. All it takes is practice. But for something like a 720, it takes physical ability and talent.

But as long as kids nowadays are happy, can't go wrong, can you?

The league's screwed up the dunk contest so badly.

They need to give 2 chances for the guy to dunk it, get rid of this 2 minute BS. When the dunk actually happens on the 5th or 6th try like so many times tonight, no matter how good the dunk is, it's so anticlimactic because the guy's tried and failed it 5 times already.

Also, how about we get rid of the props and stuff? Just use the ball and the hoop. I don't need any cars being rolled out or little kids running on the court. Just dunk the ball.

i agree but like i said before the players have to get creative or else we'd see the same dunks as year's past. i think 5 tries should be the max, this whole 10 or more tries is completely absurd. But honestly people it's a dunk contest, i don't get why everyone thinks there should be official score (givers?) and all these rules, who the hell really cares who wins unless you have money on it. It's supposed to be entertainment and they're entertaining, it's all hype!

I think all 4 of the guys in the contest could have done that. The difference is Griffin caught an oop causing him to take his eyes off the car and rim which is think is more difficult than just jumping over a car and dunking. Not saying the other guys couldn't have done what griffin did but it's a harder dunk than people think it is. Plus he did it on the 1st time which is huge bonus points!

ok, highway robbery. Yes this a GREAT dunk contest, but the fact that Griffin was handed the award takes away from the greatness of this dunk contest. IMO Demar's one handed reverse was the best dunk, followed by Ibaka's FT Line dunk, and the 3rd best dunk IMO was Magee's cradle, should have all been 50's IMO. Griffin's 360 was his best dunk, and I would have gave him an 8 or a 9 on it. That windmill wasnt that good did not deserve a 46, more like a 38-41, they were just getting him to the finals. Griffin's car dunk was aweful. If you wanted to make it good, place the car like 1 or 2 feet in front of the rim so he has to accually jump over it. Then after he jumps he could have caught an alley oop and reverse dunked or windmilled it. That would have been sweet. Griffin was handed the award, and Magee was cheated as well as Ibaka. Demar also did better than Griffin, which is why it is such a shame Blake won..... :pity:

Champion, shouldnt be decided by the fans. Fans are too stupid to vote I.E. the same fans who voted Allen Iverson as an all-star a year or two back. They see a car and Kenny Hyping up the crowd and go. "Woo a car, and its Blake Griffin He Deserves to win". Its Ridiculous.

Mcgee's Two Ball Dunk on two different Rims was SICK, I think Reggie said he's thinks Mcgee's the only person in the world who could do that, and he was the first dunker in the history of the slam dunk contest to dunk three balls, and probably the first to dunk two balls on two different Rims. My opinion is Mcgee should've won followed by DeRosan and Ibaka (2nd Dunk attempt on Teddy Bear perk cost him some momentum+points) or Griffin.

They should tally three dunks, and get the highest score in all three. You should win based on all three dunks; Your overall performance. So if your last dunk is a downer, it doesnt cost you the crown, if your first two dunks were Epic. That was the case with Mcgee.

Yeah he might have had a decent performance. Actually better than decent but the NBA needs name brand player to compete in these types of contests. Personally i loved what Ibaka brought to the table, but for some reason me and the judges have different beliefs. In reality few will remember who won tonight and in all it was a fun time to be an NBA fan. Now if Blake would have thrown it down on the hood of a hummer....wait til next year fellas

ALL of those dunks are dangerous....they're taking a risk by participating in the event.

Walking across the street could be considered dangerous, but there's a difference between using the crosswalk and going across while cars are coming at you.
Just tell the truth people, no matter what blake would've done you all were gonna hate cuz you have nothing better to do. In my opinion all 4 were great and any of them deserved to win. I thought McGee was the worst one, he had one great dunk and then 3 average ones. I'm sorry but the 3 ball one is easy for anyone 7 feet tall or close to it. he didn't do anything spectacular, he just put the 1st 2 in which is basically 1 ball and then caught the 3rd and put it in. I think he had the 2 worst dunks of the night being the 3 ball and the off the backboard normal dunk in the final.

haha so real fans thought McGee's 2 dunks in the finals were better than Griffin's? There 1st 2 dunks were probably 50's and the 2nd McGee's weak *** dunk was probably a 42-43 and griffin's car dunk was easily higher than that. So tell me real fan, why was McGee's final dunks more deserving than griffin's?

ha not even close, i saw that on espn the night it happened and didn't think anything of it and the next day i heard everyone on espn talk about how wade's pass might have been the greatest ever and i thought i had missed it and it was the same one i saw and i laughed.

I'm not saying Blake was amazing and was clearly the best, i actually think derozan had the best dunks, but they were all good and obviously it's gonna be biased as with most major sports. But i also wouldn't say blake was the least deserving as he had some really good dunks and better dunks in the final. I do think the announcers were over hyping McGee the whole time because he showed the most creativity and brought the most shoes. They also thought the 3 ball dunk was amazing which is wasn't.

I don't think his dunks were bad it's just that the other dunkers were also that awesome too. Plus he's the hometown kid.

Its too bad because Blakes first attempt on his first dunk would have been one of the best ive ever seen if it went down.

Also the first attempt on the side of the backboard dunk also would have been one of the best of all time. A 360 dunk grabbing it from the side of the backboard would of been epic.

I do agree the car jump was wack.

If he does it next year and executes better, he would dominate.

Blake was alright (probably 4th best dunker tonight). His "what if" dunks were good, but he missed all of them. So he decides to make it 10 times easier; which isn't a problem because the judges have their skirts on so they pander to the public.

Ibaka's first round dunk was easily the most under appreciated dunk I have ever seen. Im mean the guy dunked the ball from behind the line. perhaps even further than Jordan when he did it and he only got a 45? Blake Griffin clearly had it in the bag before the competition even started. His dunks were lame. The man can jump out of the building but his dunks were the lamest in the competition. A 360 dunk? How hard is that? pretty much copied Vince carters 2000 dunk and a ally op over the front end of a small car? lame.

Blake was playing in his teams city. Blake has the 2nd most dunks in the NBA this season (I think). Blake was SO HYPED to have already blown out the competition before this thing even started. So not only does it not surprise me that the judges gave him the final round, but it's clearly obvious why he won the fan voting too.

Cmon people, the year Dwight went against Nate Rob... Dwight CLEARLY had the worst dunk ever (took him over 1:30 to get his teammate to pass him the ball right to get him a ****** dunk) but he ended up with a perfect 50.

Listen, these superstars get hyped up to the point where they EXPECT to make the next round. They get their huge props set up for it and makes the ratings go up on television. Not only did Blakes dunk get more ratings from the start of the commercial, but it was a great advertising scheme for the car.

TL/DR: It was a dunk contest, who cares who won when it's a money-making fire

Blake was winning the contest from the get go. But it was very entertaining as all 4 contestants did very well.... I think you could make a case for all 4 of them winning. But Mcgee was probably the most impressive. Griffin had the hype and the home crowd, no reasons to be surprised here...

the dunk contest is about the creativity, the dunk, the attitude, and how hyped up the crowd. not just how the dunk looks. there's many aspects. and because blake plays in la, and the contest was in la... he wins the hype factor.

but Javale McGee really impressed me the most.

ibaka and derozen were good too, i'm just glad this was a really good dunk contest - does it really matter who won?

the point is to put on a show for the audience, and they did... they made it a real dunk-off instead of last year's bedtime story.

Some people here did not give the credit due to Blake for dunking over a car. Yes it would of been cool if it were the tall section of the car but get real. Who would risk a injury for a slam dunk contest. Plus it would be very hard to do because you can say " But Nate jumped over Dwight and dunked " Yes but he was able to keep his legs straight, the only section he had to jump over was his middle section. To jump over a car you would have to jump over plus keep your legs bent in order not to touch the top of the car. It's easier said than done. A car is long, so it is hard to time a jump when you have time to get over the car plus bend your legs so it will not touch the car. He is not superman guys, give the guy a break.

We know Blake probably didn't deserve to advance to the final but he did.. and once there clearly did better than McGee. Nonetheless it's over and fine discuss.. but all the crying is over the top.

You guys don't even cry this much over playoff games or the MVP award so why the fu** are you guys crying over a dunk contest????????

I think this all has to do with the fact that everyone that isn't a Clippers fan is sick of Blake. Much like every other legendary rookie going from Lebron to Jordan etc.. people are sick of everyone talking about him. You need to deal with it. Reality is people talk about this best. If you're sick of hearing about Blake.. stop spending time on basketball forums, watching sports channels or reading the paper. It's simple ****. The only rookies this hyped.. are ones that deliver.

Same people that ***** are the same one's that are sick of his dunks on ESPN... yet that's what everyone wants to see. Would you want highlights of Blake's rebounds or layups? Hell no..

McGee's last dunk was garbage and his 3 ball dunk took him 10 attempts to pull off. His dunk into two baskets was pretty weak in my opinion too, but I LOVED his other one. That was sweet. And his two with the multiple baskets were at least creative. I dunno, the voting is not based on actual guidelines, it's just for fun. I think Griffin winning was fine. You can make a case for all of 'em but it what it is. Get over it. Not a big deal.

It's not that difficult based on what? You need height and distance to cover that. The choir adds creativity. You need hype, you need to play the crowd, you need to add a prop or two throughout if you can. It's just a silly dunk contest, I don't get how you take it so serious. It's supposed to be fun, and it was in my opinion. I thought it was great. There's only so many dunks you can do, so the above things you don't like, were needed at some point. The free-throw line dunk was maybe more difficult, but it's been over done. If you took everything away, that's all you'd be left with. Free-throw line dunks, 360s, and between the leg dunks. It needed some spice several years back and it got it.

Also gotta add that Blake Griffin is sick, although I see why he's overhyped.

That jumping over the car thing was stupid lol. I mean let's be real, that's a 2 hand dunk that he does in actual games. Now if he jumped over the middle of the car then ok yeah that would of made anyone nod their head like yeah, now that was bada$$ and takes some serious hops.

Quite possibly the worse dunk contest ever, well maybe 2nd.

wow mad haters lol I actually liked this dunk contest a lot that first round was some of the best dunks i've seen. The last round was not as good as the first obviously, but I thought Blake's Honeydip dunk was nasty. Do yu even get how much thats gotta hurt to slam the inside of yur elbow on the rim and hold all of your weight? Ik V.C. did it but Blake brought it up a notch his car dunk wasn't all that special but I was very impressed with the whole first round at the very least.

you people are never satisfied. Problem was McGee did his best dunks to make it to the final. A lot the guys did their best dunks first blew their wads too soon.
