Seriously.. The Dunk needs a revamping in the worst way.

Unless they come out next year with LeBron, Durant, Derrick Rose, Blake, Westbrook and Howard, this thing needs to be gone.

Honestly, just make a million dollar prize - it would probably entice them to do it.

It's ridiculous right now.

I don't even think it needs stars. Just recognizable faces that get playing time, and that you see on highlights every week. Iggy and Smoove weren't stars when they did it, but they were respected because they were solid up and coming players

guys like Flight White and Jeremy Evans don't even sniff playing time, so obviously nobody will respect them. I don't even think the 4 dunkers this year's PPG equal 20...that's pathetic

The top dunks in this contest compare to some of the top dunks in other contests. It's just that we've probably seen all possible dunks. So you're basically seeing repeats. Hell, half of the guys who try to jump from the FT line do it better than Jordan. But we've seen it so much, we don't really care anymore.

The main problem was the missed dunks. It takes all the energy outta the crowd. Seeing guys jag six consecutive attempts really kills it IMO, unless the dunk is really crazy.

Don't get me wrong but players are missing dunks because they overthink it. There are players who can do Carter's dunk with ease but since it's repetitive, they have to add a prop and that ruins everything. I'll admit though, the dunk contest needs a huge revamp. The stars alone will make it exciting.

LeBron James
Russell Westbrook
John Wall
Dwight howard
Blake Griffin

Because he is explosive and lots of people will be interested just because of him participating.
