RIP dunk contest. cuz guys like LeBron and Wall are too cool for it and guys like Griffin and Derozan are too discouraged for re appearances.

Botched the hell out of his first one, ended up with a self-toss reverse.

Hayward threw two balls up for him and he dunked them through one hoop.

Then he did a Karl Malone pose and jumped over a stuttering black midget mailman.

I don't think the dunk contest can be saved.

That they let you keep trying for 2 minutes forces players to come up with gimmicky complex crap that takes away from the thrill of watching a GOOD dunk.

Are we supposed to take the failed attempts into account when judging? who knows. It's just weak and awkward. If they gave everyone one shot then they'd go with realistic but still impressive dunks (and no props like fucking cars). But now that the gimmicks are allowed there's no going back.

Damn I just needed Jones to repeat. At least Evans made me some money. Congrats!

Yes, since nobody will EVER top Vince Carter's performance in the 2000 dunk contest.

2 of Evans dunks sucked horribly. George messed up way too much and his lights out dunk should of been lights on. Chase Budinger was most consistent, but copied Williams so erase that dunk and put a 0. Derick Williams was great, except for the last dunk where he failed.

Haha that was my first thought too. Either that or enough people sent in joke texts for 'Lin' that he scored higher than the 4 of them
