i would like to see maybe a derozen or fernandez or iguodala or jrich. the shows put up by these wingmen were spectacular in the previous contests. i would love to see gay in the dunk contest personally.

j-rich is done. he's won it, is older and injuries have slowed him. i will say this though...his dunks are among some of the most underrated. i don't think derozan will do it. he was frustrated with last year's results and the 'prop show'. iggy? maybe but he's done it once already. same with josh smith. fernandez could do it again but we'll see. rudy gay tried it once, maybe he'll do it again.

at this point, it's just hard to top some of those 80's/90's dunks. outside of VC/j-rich, some nate, some dwight...there hasn't been a whole lot to get excited about

it might just be best to watch an 80s mix: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJhAL3c_A1Y

EDIT: crap, i forgot josh smith won already

griffin, dwight, nate rob, derozan, josh smith, rudy gay were scrubs? c'mon. at this point, i don't think lebron will join and no one should get their hopes up. he's had multiple opportunities.

i actually don't mind shannon brown trying again. i think he was nervous last time or didn't practice much. those dunks were mostly crap. i know he has better dunks than that. dude beat out lbj himself in the mcdonald's slam dunk contest and looked much more at ease. he just needs to get back to that 'fun' spot

DeRozan has already said he does done with the dunk contest, at least until they remove the gimmicks and props and make it about the dunks or if Toronto hosts it.

He didn't deserve it last year. His makes were mediocre. His misses were more exciting.

Derozen should've won, but it seemed like all Griffin had to do was show up and it was his.
