You know things have gotten out of control when Kenyon Martin is finishing dunks like it’s 2002 all over again.

stupid. almost as bad as that ridiculous jamal crawford through the legs alley oop to blake griffin. this isn’t an all-star game.
it was decent but it was the best when jkidd and kmart were in NJ.
Why not give the fans what they want?
Would your rather see them doing a layup?
Give me your address – I want to come round to your house and meet you based on the fact you sound like an absolute BLAST! Seriously though…cheer the F up, the fans loved it, which is what this is about.
Yeah man, I used to love watching games on VHS too….welcome to 2013.
it’s not entertaining to me, and i’m rooting for the knicks in this series. maybe it’s just a matter of the type of basketball i like, but unnecessarily flashy stuff is in general annoying to me. and it seems usually to be done in service of a player’s own ego more than to please fans. and while i’m at it, kmart needs to stop celebrating every bucket like he just hit a buzzer beater in game 7 of the finals. if that wasn’t part of this play, maybe it wouldn’t annoy me so much.
Those celebrations get the crowd and the team going, they are for the better of the team.
Look at OKC’s arena with and without Westbrook.
Westbrook pumps the crowd and his teammates up with celebrations like this.
Quentin Richardson’s the most underrated cheerleader in NBA history. He seems like a dude you want on you bench.
c’mon man, right handed lay ups without celebrations are so much more fun to watch
The problem is that they can do it and you don’t.
This is all about defense by K-Mart and nice by Felton to give the points to the big man, when he runs the break. This play has team and defense all written over it.
And yes you are allowed to celebrate and pump yourself up. Not all players are robots.
Yeah I know, especially when they can touch the backboard aswell..
good points. just a taste thing, i guess. i guess it’s the celebration is what gets under my skin, more than the dunk itself. it just seems unnecessary and it makes me roll my eyes. call me a purist.
You must really like DRose dont you?
But even he has his moments (ask Dragic).
That reminded me of Kidd to Kenyon oops in the early 2000s….Kenyon even dunked it the exact same way he used to (fist pump in the air after the jam).
i am a drose fan. basically, i like a superstar who acts like he’s been there before after making a big play.
and yes, poor, poor dragic.
