Boy oh boy how I miss the old Vince Carter and Jason Richardson days. Those guys literally look like super-humans compared to what we've seen the last few years.

Agree with the Evans Dunks, but not George's. The other best was Chase Budinger's blind dunk. Even with him having assistance, it was impressive that he finished it with a reverse slam. I think he should have won honestly.

What would you have done if someone pointed out that picture of Karl Malone back in 1997 in an issue of SLAM and said, "Hey, guess what? Fifteen years from now, that's going to win the NBA Slam Dunk contest."

I don't often get righteous, but I almost feel like the NBA owes us: 1) A public apology 2) An explanation and 3) A pledge to return the NBA Dunk Contest to normalcy

Pau Gasol ‏ @paugasol

Evans is the winner! Not the best contest I've ever seen though! Evans ha ganado! No ha sido el mejor concurso de mates que he visto!

I love Pau.
