Default Blake Griffin does not plan to defend his slam dunk championship

Apparently Blake Griffin doesn't want to enter the 2012 all-star slam dunk contest

Read this: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=9189

What's your reaction?

Great, no cheesy chorus and no lame-ass Kia dunk.

Seriously? No point in watching it this year then. Who are some legitimate competitors anyways? Alonzo Gee? McGee again? McRoberts?

Bring Ibaka back i want to see what he planed in the other rounds.
DeAndre Jordan could also provide some good dunks i think.

Actually come to think of it, it shouldn't be too bad if DeRozan can give it another run. Derrick Williams also showed some glimpses.

He has nothing to prove. Move on. He's playing in the All Star game, that's all that really matters. Plus the slam dunk contest is so tired, only little kids like it.

Griffin only had 1 great dunk in the 2011 Dunk Contest. NBA needs to get rid of the dunk contest, and replace it with a 3 or 3 competition.

good. that means the dunk contest won't be rigid
even lebron wouldn't agree to sell out to KIA just to win some pointless contest.

but on a serous note, its time for king james to finally take home that hardware
jordan in 87, kobe in 97, james in 12 !!!

Good. His dunks were not that good, and expectations will be higher which he will likely not be able to meet.

Default Re: Blake Griffin does not plan to defend his slam dunk championship

it might have been cheesy but there's no reason to do it again. lebron hasn't done it once. aside from that, i don't see DD doing it again. dunk contests have really been mostly underwhelming since j-rich. i think i'm looking more forward to the damn skills competition and that's ten kinds of lame sauce
