I look forward to the slam dunk contest every year. That being said this year sucked. Why hasn't Labron entered into the slam dunk contest yet? He's been in the league what 5 years now? I was just really dissapointed.

i agree. i thought the dunk contest was pretty boring this year. Why were there only 4 people? In years past, there were more.

Everyone is scared of looking like the guys did last night. Its an absolute discrace to the game Lebron does not enter. The average fan probablly didnt know more than one or two of the guys entered last night. Personally I think the fans shoulod vote who enters the dunk contest from a list the NBA compiles and if your picked your in period. Ive lost allot of respect for Lebron over the last few years. Specially sice he stood in front of all of us last year and stated he was entering. Think of the shows Kobe and Michael put on in the dunk contests' there wasnt any electricity in that event last night. Guys think you have ot do something creative to win. YOU DONT!! Just go out and throw down! Id love to see someone go out and throw down some dunks like VC or DW did back in the day. Just give me some sweet windmils lol screw all the props

Coop, couldnt have said it better. What a let down and yes Lebron did say he would enter this years contest and then bailed. The weird thing is we all know Lebron can jump, why in the world would he not want to enter? The fans got a very boring dunk contest not to mention the ridiculous skills contest. Anyway, I will shut up just venting.

someone please tell alicia keys that it's a good idea to sing upbeat songs at an all-star game. thanks.

What happened to just dunking the basketball? Now everyone's got props and is jumping over teammates. It's lame.

i think the dunk contest should be more like "horse" <BR>one guy dunks then the next has to duplicate it, until you spell DUNK.

poser007 02-14-2010 10:27 PM

Darren thats a great idea.

Dunk contest was really bad. Shannon Brown was a disappointment to fans that have seen his in game dunks. In fact there were much better dunks in the actual all star game than the dunk contest. Lebron should have kept his word, is he really afraid of being shown up? At least the game in the Cowboy Crib was a nice venue, but i dont think there were really 108K there.

I have seen a lot of bad dunk contests, but this was just pathetic! I really thought Lebron missed an opportunity to push his brand over the edge. The dunk contest was screaming for a super star, instead we got the same ol' retread Nate Robinson, who I thought should not have won the last two, winning by default. <BR> <BR>Side note: I don't have kids, but all I could think of while watching the half-time show during the game, wow, if I had kids, I would not want them watching this crap. Was it just me, or was the stripper acts a little heavy during half-time? Again, it's fine for me, but if I have kids, I want to have them watching the game I love, getting them stoked on hoops. But damn, Shakira comes out humping a cage, mimicing a *********ion move and Keys is caressing herself up and down on a stool. Damn, maybe I am just getting too old <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
