honestly i think 95% of what makes a dunk awesome is it's in-game context. it's just not that special a skill anymore. the 3 point contest was honestly more intriguing to me.

Other than Evans dunking two balls, all the dunks were average. Like seriously, I think Steve Nash who's never dunked before could probably do better.

The dunk contest just gets lamer every year. They just need to get people from TeamFlightBrothers compete in a contest. That would be so much more entertaining.

That might actually scare top name players away because, let's be real, the amateurs would destroy the NBA players. The amateurs lfrom TFB and ballislife focus on dunking whereas NBA players don't focus too much on that stuff. But, if it made the top named players want to compete, that would be great.

The #1 thing they need to stop is giving them alot of chances after missing a dunk. That is what makes it boring. If you miss it, 1 more try, and then you are done in that round.

The NBA uses the dunk contest to try and promote young players, not household names. That's why these guys were chosen for it.

I personally think there was entirely too many props, Kenny was horrible hyping the players up, and entirely too many misses. What takes all the air out of the dunks is when it takes 8 tries to get it right. By that point no one cares.

Oh, and get rid of the fan voting. It's stupid. Watching the lights-out dunk was probably 20x more impressive in person than watching it on my TV in a lighted room.

it was, for the most part, boring. i always enjoy the 3-point competition but i would have liked to see some different faces there.

the dunk contest was as stupid as it has been for the past few years. i really liked the two ball dunk, but other than that, there wasnt much to get excited about. ill be honest though, the ball off-the-backboard followed by a between the legs dunk will be amazing when it gets done and it will be the winning dunk. Kenny said he saw it on youtube so its possible.

i also really want to see John Wall in the dunk contest. he looks like he could impress us

The NBA should select about 15 of the NBA's best dunkers and let the fans vote for who they wanna see. And instead of 4, let it be 8 dunkers. That way the contest lasts longer, and hopefully we see better dunks.

Lebron in general has made it very clear in a recent interview that he doesn't want to enter the dunk contest. Despite him saying (lying) multiple times that he would enter. When asked why, he said something like " The dunk contest just isn't my thing, I'm an in-game dunker, I don't like to be rated on my dunks and being given points and whatnot" And some such bull-**** like that. I was sitting there listening like homie please!

You sure don't have a problem with ESPN and Sportscenter overrating your dunks and then posting on twitter about how great your dunks are. But its not just him, the same goes for Wade and a bunch of others. They KNOW we want to seem them compete, but all they want to do is bull ****. You here them all talking about how ALL-STAR weekend is for the fans and showing appreciation to them, having fun and giving them what they want. Yet you don't want to participate in the main things the fans want to see. Man please.

Bring back the real competitors like the old days. At least Dwight and Blake entered ONCE. Most of these guys act like *****es. I'm sorry but they do.

cutiepie80
02-26-2012, 04:58 AM
They all just have to much pride. Forget fun and ecitement for the fans, they are more worried they won't win a fun competition and for some like Lebron will hurt his ego.

Get on the court and excell at what God gave you. Such a joke. I think I am done watching this crap, used to be something I was so excited to watch every year. I mean, just look at the entire slam dunk and 3 point contests 2 all-stars out of 10.

Lin, CP3, Deron, Rondo, Lebron, Jennings in Skills challenge

TeamLAL, TeamBos, TeamNY, TeamMil, TeamDet, TeamPhilly(Bring back Iverson)

I thought the JEvans double dunk was one of the best dunks we have had in the contest for awhile...everything else I agree was pretty lame. BUT that Evans dunk was pretty nasty.

I thought evan's dunk with two basketballs over Hayward was pretty cool.... one of the toughest dunks ever attempted in the history of the dunk contest..... but there were to many missed dunks. I disagree with the superstars dunking, I would rather have the best dunkers go at it and let fans decide rather than all stars dunk and become a populatiry contest....

It's time for @KingJames, Mr Westbrook, Mr.Rose, and @DwyaneWade to get in the dunk contest

Dwyane Wade

Not me but I agree w the othersRT @KDTrey5: It's time for @KingJames, Mr Westbrook, Mr.Rose, and @DwyaneWade to get in the dunk contest

Make it happen!

Just watched the "in the dark" dunk by Paul George. Why in hell didn't the ball glow FFS?

Most glow in the dark things need to be charged up and held next to bright light first. Didn't look like they did that.

First time the dunk contest was put on hiatus, it returned in 2001 I believe, where we saw Vinsanity, T-Mac, and Steve Francis. So maybe it is better off if it doesn't happen for a couple years.

The Evans dunks were good, but the rest were either gimmicky or boring. I thought the lights off one was real dumb, because (at least on my TV) I couldn't even see the damn ball. Just the glow in the dark jersey.

But I did really love that double dunk.

I think the dunk contest has run it's course. Sadly, there just seems to either be...nothing new to do with dunking a basketball, or no players around to be creative enough to invent new dunks.

I'm pretty sick of...Player A dunks over Object A, Person A, or Grorup A

Seriously? Last year's destroyed this year's. The only thing that ****ed last year's contest up was the rigged result. If they played on a level field with fair judging, it woulda been amazing IMO. The dunks were pretty ****in solid last year...there was no pathetic *** dunks, and this one had about 3 or 4 absolutely HORRIBLE dunks.

I thought the new format was bad but there were some good dunks. The 2 ball alley was sick. The glow in the dark was great once we got a camera angle that showed the dunk (it was the vince 360 windmill - sick). The catch off the side of the backboard and 360 was unreal too. People are tough these days but I just don't like how everything has to be a gimmick these days. And people mostly don't like it because there are no big names so no anticipation for the dunk. Last year I thought was one of the best I've ever seen. Its funny though because go back to the Jordan days and stuff and the dunks they did during those "great" battles are routine now.

02-26-2012, 05:00 PM
Paul George would've won if he did it with the lights on. The Glow in the Dark Ball didn't even work and no one could appreciate the difficulty of the dunk because they couldn't see it.

We should riot next year if there isn't a dunk contest including a combination of Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Nate Robinson, Blake Griffin, Andre Igoudala, Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook.
I hate the argument by the one announcer of this being the way young guys get their name out. You get your name out by 10 guys pouring over your in-game footage and deciding whether you're consistently good then you can get invited to the dunk contest.
Also, drop the fan voting for the dunk contest. It's already bad enough that the all-stars are chosen by the mostly clueless masses. Why should the dunks not be judged by experts like Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins, Vince Carter and Jason Richardson?

ghettosean
02-26-2012, 05:45 PM
I like Stephen A Smiths idea from ESPN which makes so much sense and would increase ratings in my opinion to a stupid crazy high. Why not have the fans vote on who should be in the dunk contest because there are never any star players in the dunk contest in almost forever we can count Blake in his ROOKIE season if we want but truth is everyone wants to see Lebron join the dunk contest but he shy's away every year or just teases the fans saying he's thinking about entering.

Why not have the fans vote on who they want in... I think the fan pressure would be enough to force the players to enter the contest and I mean if you are already there for all star weekend is it too much to ask for you to do 2 or 3 rounds of dunks for the fans.

All star weekend is supposed to be about the fans and I think players and the NBA have gotten away from that a little.

The NBA needs to let whoever wants to be in, put their name in a hat. If it's like a ton of people who want to participate, then the league should trim the list. The league has shown that they don't have enough of a clue to call themselves handpicking a couple of guys to compete. The Washington & OKC rosters could have put on a better slam dunk contest.

the dunk contest has been more and more about gimmicks the last 5 years or so. It really is terrible. I hate seein guys jump over someone/thing all the time, you're in the NBA we know you can jump high. Derrick WIlliams had a good idea with the 360 off the side of the backboard but he caught the ball mid spin and there was no flash or flare to it.

me personally i seeing lower tier guys make a name for themselves in this league. i know people miss the days of jordan vs nique. but those days are over. im a fan of the underdog nobody knows about. im looking at some of these past winners. kobe was not proven when he won. lets see, nate robinson isnt a star. spud webb wasnt a start. dee brown, harold miner, fred jones?? these guys arent superstars. the only issue i have is the repeated missed dunks. i mean if you cant complete your dunk in 3 tries. then you dont deserve to be in it.

The Jeremy Evans two ball alley oop over Hayward was a top 10 dunk all time. If Blake Griffen had done it, everybody would still be raving about it. The difficulty involved and how it looked with him hanging on the rim after made it look incredible.

As for the rest of the dunk contest, it was terrible. Absolutely awful, but that dunk deserves more respect.

02-27-2012, 01:06 PM
Entertain yourself if they aren't doing it for you jag off. You think it's easy to pull off high octane dunks? So what it wasn't the best, at least they tried. the fans are there enjoying the festivities/atmosphere, watching players do what they can't do. Don't like it, watch animal planet.
