you know the nba begs one of them to do it and none will. As far as evans goes in terms of dunking ability he is as good as anyone in the league the dude can really get up.

They probably don't want anything to do with the contest. Since it's become a joke an all. I mean look at the participants this year. Last year was a huge publicity stunt by Kia..who cares anymore really?

Thats a bummer. I hope this doesn't mean he is sitting out the HEAT game otherwise it will be a blowout for sure.

How is Derozan not in this thing?

He should have won the last one and had one of the most beautiful dunks I've ever seen.

Seriously, what is it with capitalizing the word "Heat" all the time? :confused:

Replace one no name with another....if Derrick Williams opts out I heard he'll get replaced with Derron Washington.

This is what I dislike about today's NBA players. Every year for a long time it use to be Michael Jordan, Dominick Wilkins, Doc J going at it and the defending Dunk champion at least had respect enough for the event to defend his crown.

Blake Griffin, Lebron, Wade and all these other punks should be ashamed of themselves for not participating this historic event

This guy is a no name, but I feel like he is in the league mainly because of his energy and dunking. He can flat out fly. I am going to take a gamble and say that Saturday, Jeremy Evans is going to make a name for himself and win the dunk contest.

Here is a highlight video I found.

he said he wouldn't join anymore because he got ripped off...same thing Iggy said.

Couldnt agree more

Dunk contestants should be

Griffin Westbrook Lebron Josh Smith

I think Kendrick Perkins should take Shumperts spot in the contest. He can bring Griffin in and dunk on him and then tweet to the judges wheres my 10s?
I would vote for that. lol

It's because it's the name of the team and always has been
For reference: http://www.nba.com/heat/

It should be the equivalent to calling the LA Lakers the la Lakers.

Lebron should try it once before he heads into his 30's. He is likely to win it, why not give it a go?

I liked Evan's game from last year the few minutes I've seen him... but this year he basically hasn't played. I honestly forgot he was in the NBA and thought he was cut by the Jazz.

Well since he hasn't played I'm sure he forgot how to dunk.

The bigger story is now that Shumpert will not be there, neither will Jeremy Lin.

Jeremy Evans beats out Jeremy Lin for a bid to go to all star weekend! :laugh:

Too bad Shumps is out he is a really creative dunker and would have definitely had a chance to win.

Dwight was in it a few years back but no with real star power since.(border line blake) How great would it be to see Griffin, Lebron, and Dwight go at it?

Maybe because he never won a championship......I wasn't sure how to spell it but I didn't bother to make sure it was correct. I can't spell Dirk last name but i would look it up because he deserve it now. That's just me.

Seriously , I think its a ****ing shame that Lebron James can dunk all day and all night, showboating day in and day out but REFUSE to participate because he's afraid of the negative backlash of losing the event.

How punkish is that? OMG, he's freakin pathetic

The really sad thing about this dunk contest is that the D league one will be 10 times better... I mean really who the f is Jeremy evans.. And anyone who says he's got ups is wrong.. He's got average To above average NBA ups at best... This is gonna be the worse dunk contest of all times.. The great Dunkers like Wilkins Jordan, dR J would roll in their grave if they were dead..and the should be winners like iggy and demar get robbed... Would u enter knowing stern already decided the winner.... I'm surprised Lin isn't in this thing he'd win for sure

The Dunk Contest is rigged anyways. Shumpert was going to win with Lin

Blake Griffin is now doing Kia commercials! He jumped over a Kia car, that's so dumb

It was planned all along, the reason Derozan wont ever do one again

Whoever says Evans can't dunk, or "who's Jeremy Evans" need to get on Youtube and check the kid out before you say he cant dunk!? I wouldnt be surpirsed if he came out and showed everyone minus Paul George up. Thats all this kid does is DUNK. YOUTUBE people...:facepalm:

whoever brought up stars nowadays I agree. They're all so spoiled and what not..No balls.

Wade was probably the last of the NBA stars Ive actually enjoyed coming into the league since the golden 90s/early 2000s. The rest are spoiled little kids coming from AAU programs there whole lifes. I now have to FORCE myself to like Rose and Durant's games because they carry themselves the right way..and I still cant get excited or stay up late watching highlights of them ever..

ThuglifeJ
02-22-2012, 09:40 PM
Maybe I dwell on the past too much..but I'm sure SOME on here agree with me..I mean compare these groups..

Jordan/Nique/Bird/Johnson/DR J/Pippen/Malone/Stockton/Kemp/Ewing/Payton/

Shaq/Kobe/AI/KG/Duncan/Pierce/Vince/Tmac/Allen/Kidd/Nash/Ginobli/Dirk/Webber/Houston/Sprewell/Francis/J Will

Dwight/Lebron/Wade/Griffin/Durant/Westbrook/Rose/Aldridge/Love/Williams


I mean sure Dwight Lebron, Wade are all exciting but they're nothing compared to the older days. Even the role players back then were awesome..

Who cares about star power in the dunk contest. To me it's about the dunks. Only players that matter are if they are like as small as nate robinson,spud webb etc.

He was probably offered but rejected it.
