Iguodala not in Dunk Contest
 
"Andre Iguodala said Wednesday night in Memphis that he was not interested in a second appearance in the (slam dunk) competition." Philadelphia Daily News

"I don't want to do it," Iguodala said. "It's a long process. You dunk, then you sit for 20 minutes. Last year, with the dunk contest and the rookie game [the rookie-sophomore game], I played 4 nights in a row. I was just tired. It's hard to come up with new stuff. They need some new young guys." Philadelphia Daily News

I wanted to see him in it again, but it sounds like he already showed his best. I'm sure Nate Robinson will be back to defend the title. Hopefully he gets that between the legs off the board to go down (first or second try would be nice). I wouldn't mind seeing JR Smith back in it either.

I think they should do a team dunk contest, since the regular competition has gotten old to a lot of people.

Have 3 or 4 of the older guys on one team (Carter, Richardson, etc.) and younger guys on the other (Josh Smith, J.R. Smith, etc.). They could do a duel where one player from each team goes head to head and the loser is eliminated while the winner gets to choose the next matchup. They do that until it's down to 2 guys, and the winner takes the trophy for his team.

Of course, that'll never happen.

^^interesting idea... maybe they could even have one guy from every team, a 30 player dunk contest, that would be sick lol

I don't think anyone really knows yet. NateRob is almost a certainty for the dunk contest, and Dwight Howard says he wants in. After that I have no idea. I really dislike the rule where the players can only be third year or younger. I want to see some of the older stars back in it.

some one needs to sign james white to a 10 day contract around the all star break so he can compete... i would also like to see gerald green, and also stromile swift again, but he is probably too old.

James White is a Spur, he's just in their D League right now. He should compete still, I don;t see why anyone would deny him. He and Carney are the 2 guys who mainly need to be in it

nate robinson should be banned from the contest...he had a career's worth of attempts already.

and that sucks iguodala isnt in it.

they should put some other athletic freak in it like deng or josh howard

knickscity 01-19-2007 11:34 PM

i don't like the dunk rules. nate will be back in it, but those multiple tries is terrible.

Vendetta 01-19-2007 11:37 PM

Dwight & Nate are locks for the contest. Don't know anyone else.

WuTangWizard 01-19-2007 11:42 PM

Iguodala was robbed last year. He's probobly still pissed at the judges.
