Evans pulled it off jumping over Eaton, but the momemtum was killed.

East dunks were better.

The commentary from Kenny, Charles, Shaq and Harlan is more entertaining than this shit.

Kenneth Faried's 2nd dunk was good. Against the backboard and through the legs.

Ross vs Evans in the final


Problem with this dunk contest is it lacks star power. These are young guys, but most casual NBA fans have no idea who these guys are.

Okay, that dunk by Evans with the painting was amusing.

Dunking over a picture of himself dunking

Ross' last dunk was good.

Otherwise it was a pretty damn lackluster dunk contest.


Looks like Ross will probably win it.

Did they get rid of the rookie/sophomore game?

I don't think it's necessary lack of star power. Dee Brown, Cedric Ceballos, Kenny Walker - even Larry Nance. Those guys weren't stars (Nance was an allstar, but not "star power"). JR Rider and Harold Miner, not stars, but I guess people knew who they were.

The problem is, there's only so many dunks players are capable of doing. There's only so many times players can go through the legs.

And if it wouldn't take so many attempts to make a fucking dunk it would help.

The jackets with all the award patches on them look cool. Kobe's is pretty decorated.

Anyone else think a one on one tournament or even 2 on 2 NBA jam style tournament would be fun? 8 players/8 teams.

Normally I'd never watch an NBA all star game, but im stuck at an airport and it's playing at the bar. This is possibly the worst NBA performance I've ever seen. Hell, Bosh has two airballs, one from like 18 feet.

Embarrassing.

Get rid of the 3-pt shot in the all-star game. (I wouldn't be opposed to getting rid of it in all NBA games)

Agreed, I'd love to see that.

First time watching an all-star game I guess? Games are always like this. personally, I think its still the most entertaining All-Star game out of the main sports, because you get a lot of fun passes and dunks.

I don't watch them (for that reason). If I wanted to see people screwing around on the court, I'll go to my gym. At least there they make a 3 every once in a while.
