I don't understand why it's so hard to get an All-Star lineup for the Dunk Contest

LeBron James
Blake Griffin
Russell Westbrook
Paul George
Rudy Gay
JR Smith

That would be amazing and entertaining and would get major ratings. On a healthy year, Rose and Wade could do it too. Just don't understand why it's so hard to get these guys to participate. I can't complain much because a Knick is in it this year, though. Bledsoe and Faried are a step up from last year.

because you can't force someone to do something. if they don't wanna do it, then they don't wanna do it. this weekend is supposed to be relaxing for most of the players and just time to sit back and enjoy the show. something they rarely can ever do.

James White dunked thru his legs from the freakin' free throw line.
.yea, he's also dunked from about a foot behind the FT line. it's unreal. i dunno if he still can. we'll see

the dunk contest was not supposed to be like this. NBA stars and NBA stars only are the ones who cab once again make it about them.

east will takes this easyly with white winning it all. he has. series of 50 point dunks in his back pocket.

James White is the MASTER of FT line dunks, hands down

so glad he's in ths thing

$5 on Terrance Ross doing some half-assed Vince Carter tribute. He'll pull off the shooting shirt and have a Vince Carter jersey on, everyone will be like "ohhhh shhiiiitttttttttt" then he'll try to do a VC dunk and fail a couple times before doing a regular tomahawk.

02-07-2013, 09:17 PM
Terrence Ross has got this. I would say he and Gerald Green in finals depending on how this East Vs West thing works.

$5 :speechless: someones confident haha. I joke. I donno if he'd do that but wouldnt be a terrible person to imitate considering Vince is widely regarded as the best dunker in history. However he may also know that it would not be favorable considering Vince is not necessarily a fan favourite in Toronto

02-07-2013, 09:54 PM
James White is easily the favorite...idk how anyone can think otherwise...he's already beaten Gerald Green overseas as well

Also, I would love to see LeBron and other stars in it...but the fact remains James White would still be the favorite so it wouldn't matter...

If you guys aren't excited about White just YouTube him..

I don't get why everyone is complaining. Did you expect something different? Where there rumors of any stars joining this thing at all? No....this is exactly what was expected. I'm just glad they got Ross and White in there because they should put on a show.

Anyways, James White vs Gerald Green from 2010 in Europe.

I've been more excited for the 3 point contest than the dunk contest for a few years now. Blake killed the integrity of the dunk contest with the car nonsense and the fact that it was blatantly staged to get him to the finals to showcase the sponsor of the ****ing NBA.

LongIslandIcedZ
02-07-2013, 10:32 PM
From a dunk quality standpoint it will be outstanding.

The guys that need to see stars to be entertained, their going to be **** out of luck. I'm thoroughly looking forward to seeing some outstanding dunks.

Hes done it way more than once.

From 2008, and with plenty of ease.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vR2XFpaoOxo

I already posted a vid from 2010 that shows him flying from the FT line. He misses an attempt at the thru the legs at the end but it doesn't look like hes far off and it only shows 1 attempt.

White being in this would of meant something had it been 5 years ago. His window has closed and he aint winning this thing. Not a chance. All I remember of White is him losing to David Lee in the High School dunk contest.

You are certain his window has closed, yet don't remember anything except a dunk contest from 12 years ago.

Hes been busting out his arsenal of FT dunks in practice, you are doing nothing but talking out of your ***.

That is also not from the free throw line. He is clearly way in front of it.

Oh wow.. So he has been practicing so therefore he is a sure bet to win? Give me a break. White's time as a dunk champ has long passed. Time for the era of #letrossdunk

LMFAO. Look at 5:19 of that clip. His foot is 'clearly' not even fully over the line. Part of his foot is still behind the line.

02-07-2013, 10:53 PM
Just for anyone wondering, I attended a Knick's practice in October and James Whites did a dunk from a foot behind the free throw line at the very end. It was one of the most amazing things I've ever witnessed.

When did I say hes a sure bet to win? I said he will put on a show and gave your boy some props.

You obviously don't know jack about White's recent ability to dunk, so might as well stop pretending like you do. He still gets way up there, and my point was that he still has reporters and teammates dropping their jaws during practice and tweeting about it. Not that hes practicing so hes going to win.

Your not doing a very good troll job.

I have been called many things but a troll, that is a first. Sorry that I don't respect a one dimensional player like James White. I just don't and his addition in the dunk contest I maintain is 5 years too late. What a guy does in practice means nothing when you have to do it on the real stage. I have read far too many stories about incredible dunks in practice with only a few guys watching and when they want to replicate it on the grand stage they can't. This happened to DeRozan very recently when he was in the dunk contest. I just don't understand how you include a player like White at All-Star weekend when he belongs in the D-League.

hidalgo
02-07-2013, 10:59 PM
if he doesn't win it'll be because he misses the dunks, or doesn't try his FT dunks

lol, why are you even bringing up his basketball skills? Do you even realize who won the whole thing last year? What has Terrence Ross done besides be a one dimensional dunker and 5 ppg rookie on a crappy team?

Derozan actually should have advanced, he got robbed.

What are all these stories you've heard? I'd love to hear em...

FINALLY we get to see James White in the NBA Dunk Contest. I've been hoping for years that we could get him in it. We'll see how he does but I least I can rest happily now knowing he finally gets the chance to be in it. I have a good feeling he'll do well though. :worthy:

back in the day...a lot of the stars were the best dunkers...now, I wouldn't pick any "star" player over Gerald Green or James White...would you guys rather see the best dunkers or just "stars" dunking...I've been down on the dunk contest for many many yrs...but the inclusion of Green and White gets me excited cause I would rather see the best dunks regardless of who it comes from..

OceanSpray
02-08-2013, 01:58 AM

I like Ross, and I actually like the Raps. I pegged them as the 8 seed this year. I was just sticking up for my boy White and pointing out the completely flawed logic milehigh was using to form his opinion.

I saw White's dunks the dude can do the air walk jumping from the free throw line, that is pretty crazy. However I do hope that none of the contestants try to do the free throw line dunk, it has been appearing too much lately.
