"Rather than all of the dunkers competing against each other as individuals, they will be working in teams, with team and individual awards being given out at the end of the night."

Still is an individual champ by the sounds of it.

You have to be excited by the calibre of contestants at least.

Good to see there won't be any stupid prop dunks as well.

No props? Damn, I wanted to see Paul George dunk over a pregnant stripper!

But Mick, Blake Griffin jumping over a car was the best dunk contest ever!!

Reminds me of Happy Days, for some reason...

They should have the top 4 or 6 dunkers go against the top 4-6 shot blockers.

Change the dunk comp name and have each player face off. Have a dunk winner and a blocking winner.

That'd be more entertaining.

Yeah the dunker V blocker things is good, but have the blocker as Shawn Bradley dressed in a saquatch outfit.

Yeah that sounds like an injury waiting to happen...

I'd be more keen to see a simple dunk competition like they had in the 80s, as well as one-on-one become part of all star weekend.

Adam Silver's tenure not starting well so many gay rule changes under him already.

I liked the props! The dunk contest is as much about the creativity and choreography as it is about the actual dunk in my opinion.
