Oh my God I don't know who any of those people are. The NBA has officially left me for dead.

Was it a good contest?

I was actually a little disappointed with the dunk contest.

The last time I really had any interest in the dunk contest was with Vince Carter, then I really enjoyed Dwight Howard. Since then, It really has just been lame use of props and copycat dunks. Not to mention, these guys get unlimited attempts (time permitting of course) to attempt their dunks. To me, after they miss the first ten tries the actual dunk loses its thunder!

Well this year, I was highly anticipating watching Blake Griffin...and don't get me wrong, he has hops and talent...but watching Kenny Smith talk all night about not using props and then on the final dunk they bring out a prop?!? and a choir?!?! WTF! Then the dunk wasn't really any good. The car should have been a little further from the hoop, and he should have jumped over the roof not the hood! (I remember seeing someone on And1 Mixtape (?) jump over the roof of a car.

For me, I thought the best dunk was Ibaka from the free throw line. No it was not beautiful, and yes he is 7ft tall...but still, he actually does it from the line and not a whole step in front of it.

Overall, I was disappointed and thought Griffin did not deserve to win.

Yea Ibaka definitely did it the furthest but like u said it wasnt pretty lol. Blake did deserve to win based off the dunks made in the finals however Derozan and McGee had the better first round dunks. Iveral I was very satisfied with the contest and the creativity was at an all time high. I agree the last dunk by Griffin was weak and all that build up for nuthin. Got Em!!

Not really anymore. I go to some Magic games. I know who the big stars are, but the game is different than it was when I was growing up. Maybe I was just young and naive.

I thought my favorite (difficult) dunk of the night was Derozan's miss...well, I believe he made it but called it a miss? (I could not find it on google video), the one hand behind the back jam. I thought it was the most talented dunk of the night. My opinion of course.

Can anyone find a link to that dunk?

check out this video...about 1:09 into it, a guy does one similar to the one i'm talking about. And then about 1:54 into it, he does it over a motorcycle!

Derozan only had two dunks and the other one was that between the legs dunk. if thats the one u are referring to I dont think so. I think Javale's first two dunks were easily more difficult. Got Em!!

What better than Jordan's?????? Haahahah. Yes he may have jumped a inch or two further out but he had no style whatsoever. Jordan looked like an eagle with flare soaring through the air with great style. Not only did he kick his legs but he even double pumped. Thats why Jordan's free throw line jam is like no other including Dr. J who also didnt have much style to it. he was just the first to do it. Jordan's dunk was a thing of beauty. I cant believe u said that man haha.

The kid is 8 months now and getting bigger and badder haha. Thats my lil man. He will jump from the 3 point line some day and dunk 4 balls lololol. Got Em!!
