Off the backboard.

First try? Not a bad start.

    Not bad, not bad. Wish Nate was in it or Green signed with my Bulls.

  • Redd

    James White..maaaan. James White.

    the way they had it set up was kind of retarded. How can you make a contest better when you completely change it every year. The downfall started with that damn roulette wheel

  • Gregg Shorthand

    Well, they had a 1:30 time limit, so we wouldn’t have been able to wait all night for little Nathaniel to try 59 dunks before he finally made one like last time

  • Yesse

    Hated to see James White choke. I was expecing him to take the whole thing.

    all these superstars in their prime watching on the sidelines with their lame ass clothes on. I think Russell Westbrook was probably the best dressed out of all of them, and thats saying something. They should all be ashamed of themselves!!

  • Redd

    We did that yesterday too..back to back. Lol?

    Five years ago he takes it easy. He is Dr.J and a lil Jordan-esque. Not one for 360 degree slams but rather a soarer type dunker who puts a nice lil funk on his windmill. He isnt a dominique or VC kind of windmiller but he is smooth. Possibly the best one legged leaper in the L.

    I will say this though, james white showed why the Knicks shouldnt let him lead a fast break. I wanted to nick name him fumbles lol

    A 50 used to mean something…..

  • King David

    westbrook has to be one of the worst dressers since rodman

    …just realized why the dunk contests of the past years have been so bad (not that this one was bad, some very good dunks)…its because these cats are sooooooo nervous. Fringe NBA players in the biggest spotlight possible, the NBA watching them, celebrities courtside looking at them, NBA vet commentators cracking jokes at them…they just fall flat under that pressure. Thats why Dwight Howard was the last dunker who really captivated the crowd….its because he was already a superstar, the stage wasn’t too big for him. He was confident, smiling, and he didn’t miss dunks. These guys are some of the most incredible dunkers in the world (Gerald Green whose hops have hit there peak, and James White the legend) but they just look like deer in the headlights….no confidence, crowd-control, before or after dunks, and the really just hit a wall after misses. The contest won’t be GREAT until superstars (or at least confident athletes) are competing

  • TBRK

    btw, who thought that Jeremy Evans dunk (I call it the JJ Evans) was bananas!….gimmicky of course, but always fun

  • Anthony Dixon

    Gerald Green won it before though..

  • pposse

    and kgs pink scarf and drakes red leather saggin pants wit red boxers underneath, all i got from all star saturday night was that there are going to be 50 different Darryl Dawkins prancing around when these guys get older

  • pposse

    the best was ross’ last dunk when he came up from behind on a bent over little kid, its surprising certain support groups havent been protesting that dunk yet!!

  • TBRK

    lol!!!!! dude his knee was like 2 inches away from bustin little man’s melon. lol, that replay made me cringe

    Me too especially with his long awaited return. He and Green were supposed to be thesaviors of the contest lmao then were the first to go.
