    I hope they televise the NBDL Dunk Contest. It looks like that I am not going to watch this year's dunk contest.

    I don't want to see another Fred Jones wins the prestigious dunk contest.

    Chase Budinger is not even dunk contest worthy athletic.

    He's a GREAT volleyball style leaper and was one of the best collegent volleyball player in the country but ...

    volleyball leaping =/= basketball leaping.

    to be a great dunker you need creativity in your dunks.

    the kid can throw it down. He's an excellent leaper

    he looks too smooth and calm on his dunks though

    instead it Jeremy Lin showcase that will be fixed from the start.

    a certain demographic of people will tune in just to watch Lin pass the ball to Shumpert.


    = ratings through the roof.

    It worse because it all fan voting now, which guarantees Iman Shumpert is gonna win (Linsanity).

    that's not a highlight reel. It's just a couple of dunks that show that the dude can dunk pretty well...


    edit: he dunks off one foot in those video's. that probably contributes to it looking plain and average. Probably will go off 2 in the dunk contest right?

    I'm sure I've seen worse, but I agree it's certainly not a stellar reel. I remember hearing a ton about Budinger's insane volleyball inspired hops but man, he is one of the plainest dunkers I've ever seen in terms of what I expected versus what I've seen. I have to say I'm at least curious about him though. Like, does he just have something against doing anything more than necessary during a real game? Because honestly, the stories of his hops have stretched far and wide. There's got to be something there, right?

    I have no respect for Lebron if he never once in his life play in a dunk contest. it should definitely be Blake vs Lebron this year. Howard should play too. and also Kobe.

    Kobe isn't a high flyer anymore. Far from it actually. Would be more interesting to see how run with the PGs in the skills competition.
