Sorry to re-bump. It's just, after finishing the '06 contest again, I have to agree with you. Before I remember being a little indifferent about things, but to watch Iggy get a 45 in round 1 for a relatively
routine one hand windmill then see him receive a 44 in the finals after completing a one-footed between the legs flush with the left hand... I don't know about that one. I'm not usually big on setups or conspiracy theories but for that slam to just happen to tie things up (with such an unusually low score for a dunk of that nature) just seemed a little suspicious.
Then, in the tie-breaker, I suppose I can better see that case, though I still don't agree with it. Nate Robinson completed a really baby windmill on a toss off the backboard on his 14th try. Iguadala then countered with a between the legs dunk from the baseline, finishing on the opposite side of the rim (I'm guessing he wasn't planning on a tie-breaker fifth dunk). Again though, for Robinson's 14 attempts and eventually weak finish to eclipse Iggy's final attempt... I suppose I understand why Andre was done with the contest after '06.
