NBA Dunk Comp 2013 thread

No discussion yet about it - does that suggest it was a bit flat?

Went through YouTube watching the main dunks and not many stood out.

What'd people think?

Nothing special really. I won't remember it this time next year.

I thought Terrence Ross was going to go for an elbow in the ring Jam off the side of the backboard 360 he did when he whipped out the VC jersey. That would have been an all time great IMO.

Very disappointing. James White could have made a name for himself at this All Star weekend but just couldn't pull it off.
Have to agree with Charles and Shaq that they need to have big names as well as up and coming guys participating. Griffin/ Lebron would make it interesting but can't see it happening.
What's with Lebron never wanting to participate in the Dunk contest?

Whoever dunked over the painting, I thought it was going to be unveiled as he went over it. But no, just jumped over it, then signed it.

was bland, but it still killed the NBL's dunk comp

'The basketball jones' guys suggested that maybe the dunk comp should run with guys having a time limit to go dunk for dunk. They said the warm up dunks were better viewing than the actual show.

Barring getting a dunk comp with LBJ, Dwight, Griffin, Josh smith etc, i think this is a good idea.

Perhaps it's time someone jumped over one of those inflatable flying sharks.

or over Homeland's Claire Danes, standing on Damian Lewis's shoulders, both supported by Mandy Patinkin's beard.
