Aside from James White I really don't think anyone else should be considered who hasn't already backed out

Jeremy Evans will probably be in it again because he won last year

Wouldn't mind seeing DeRozan back as well. Could be another VC/McGrady competition in 2000 with Ross. I just hope to god Jeremy Evans doesn't come back and defend his title. All wing players please, i'm tired of watching big men in the dunk comp.

should be canned. Last year was their chance for redemption after the rigged year with KIA. And it was a borefest.

DeRozan said he won't do it again since he got robbed last time. Said too many props, not even about dunking anymore. I can't say I blame him, he's right.

If the NBA insists upon separating the dunking further and further from the dunk contest itself (in its place - terrible acting, props, mailmen, coaches, microphones, and choirs) then I agree. However, if the contest can be returned to a standard format then I believe it should forever live on. Dunk contests will always have down years regardless but I think it's important to keep it alive for those special, special moments.

For instance, can we imagine NBA history had the league opted not to bring the contest back for 2000? Surely, Carter's year was followed by a lame showing in DC the next season but then came a great run by Jason Richardson and company. Unfortunately, life-altering moments will never happen every year in the dunk contest, but the rarity of those moments is what makes them so special and eliminating the contest altogether would just be counterproductive in my opinion. Eliminate it for the return of 2Ball?

Serg Ibaka completed a dunk BEHIND the free-throw line but only got 45 points.

NBA Slam Dunk Contest is way beyond repairable.

Blake Griffin "throw in not dunk the basketball" should not be in there, especially KIA sponsoring it.


Paul George should get another shot too, dude had some insane dunks he was absolutely robbed.
