    best lineup in years. hope they dont stuff it up with the format now. no gimmicky crap, no wheels, no second baskets, no cars- give us hardcore dunks nba

  • danpowers

    i hope they got the memo: less sideshow = better dunk contest

  • M.Phoenix

    I’m rooting for Bledsoe – I love his athleticism (and his game) – but I think James White’s got this one.

  • Caboose

    The NBA got it right. No more need be said.

    I fear this year it will be worse than ever

    Hopefully there won’t be as many stupid props… I love the guys like DeRozan, Iguodala and Gay who try the throwback dunks but they never get any love, that’s why we need to bring back the judges and get rid of fan voting.

    Also, anyone else irritated about the quality of players in the dunk contest? Not that they’re all bad, but James White and Jeremy Evans are barely even in the league. How about for future years, a combination of Rose, Westbrook, Wall, James, Wade, Anthony, Durant, Harden, Lillard, Jennings, Ellis, etc? Hell Yes! That would be intense, people actually cared who won when it was Dominique vs Jordan, they didn’t use a single prop, and they would put on an AMAZING show.

    Flight White is a legend

  • Gilford

    Where’s the token white guy?

  • Rick

    We’ve waited a decade for James White to finally perform on this stage. No more grainy overseas YouTube vidoes of him destroying dunk contests in Russia or Afghanistan- we’ll have high def, multi-camera angel shots of his majestic slams. This truly proves there is a God who loves us!

    T-Ross is in this….Shit just got real!

    no complaint this year. Just hope that we won’t see MJ giving a 9 when James White does a free throw windmill

  • iks mod

    Best line-up in years IMO. Some very athletic dunkers and some proven dunkers as well

  • Max

    Damn, that’s sweet, I’m surprised by Faried, but he’ll do great!

    if this was an East vs West kind of thing… east would clean up… but still no complaint’s and i did really want to see EBledsoe but i didn’t think anyone would agree with me

  • Youngindy21

    Really good lineup. Now GET RID OF FAN VOTING.

  • Cameron

    Didn’t Gerald Green say in a recent SLAM interview he was trying to get away from the dunk image? And there he is….in a dunk contest.

  • Redd

    Wow amazing lineup and I think it has a lot to do with the fact that there’s guys who may surprise(Ross, Faried).

  • kick back

    best dunk lineup potential in years….hopefully it pans out like the vc tmac franchise dunk contest



  • danpowers

    if this happens again, we as nba fans should start a boycott against the all star weekend world wide lol

  • good researcher

    You are not up to date. Rose, Wade, Anthony, Ellis…

  • buschfire

    TRoss is going to throw down! I hope White wasn’t a few years too late… Tdot_Flight31 FTW!

  • Lloyd

    Y’all should lower your expectations. Great in-game dunkers doesn’t equal great dunk comp contestants (Gerald Green is nasty though). Derozan needs another shot in this thing. He was robbed both times. Hopefully he gives TRoss some tips. Great line-up regardless.

    its East vs West though, there are teammates and everything. Idk how its going to work out…

  • http://www.facebook.com/rainman1991 Saleem Rainman

    Anyone know how the whole “east vs west” thing is gonna work out? there are teammates and stuff. I was hoping for just individual battles…

  • danpowers

    they will play 3 on 3, only dunks count as points lol

  • ClipperNation

    Got money on Bledsoe

    James White and the competition for 2nd.
    that’s what this should be called.

  • RayJr

    This is going to be EPIC!!! Have been waiting for James White to be in a nationally televised dunk contest since he was robbed by David Lee in the McDonalds dunk contest in 2001! White vs Green and everyone else is just icing on the cake!
    I’m very excite! – Borat voice

  • Chukaz

    He probably said that before he lost his spot in Indy’s rotation to sh*tty players. Dunk image is better than no image. Just like blow jobs are better than no jobs (gives us Clinton back!!!!!!!!)

  • KipSmithers


  • davidR

    i hope so man. isnt he 30 now? hopefully he still got it

  • Dino

    I wish LeBron was in it… but I got Kenneth Faried in this one.
