my favorite dunk of the contest. Javale and Paul should be in the dunk contest next year to settle their scores.

I think he had potential to have a really nice contest. But there was no consistency. Props moving in, props moving out, missing dunks left and right, jerseys changing (this applies to all dunkers, not just George). It was hard to get a grasp of what the hell was going on. And even if George performed a 720 in the dark, how would we have ever remembered it? We couldn't see anything.

Get righteous more often.

The dunces who think their stewardship over these once-sacred-events owe us all that and more.

I'm blaming Dahntay Jones. He ruins everything.

couldnt carter could do this over both of them with NO pushoff and NO head lowering backwards?

granted, this guy took off from a semi far area... but still... theres way too many people who can do this. bron could do this dunk... whats the point of having this contest if its not the best of the best

Granted, Hibbert is 7'2"

Anyway, worst Dunk contest ever, the best dunk was Jeremy Evans dunking two balls and Budinger's dunk over Diddy.

The best thing about this Dunk Contest was Charles Barkley's commentary.

It really was not that bad. People claiming it was the worst dunk contest ever, have a very short memory. Fan voting needs to go away though. Fans should never be trusted to make the right choice.

Dunk Rankings:

1. Paul George w/ lights off
2. Jeremy Evans dunking 2 basketballs
3. Derrick Williams 360 from Rubio pass
--------
4. Chase Budinger blindfolded reverse dunk (He really could not see)
5. Derrick Williams windmill over the bike
6. Chase Budinger over Puff Daddy
7. Paul George over Roy Hibbert & Dahntey Jones
--------
8. Paul George dunk and slapping Larry Bird sticker on the backboard
9. Jeremy Evans with the mailman dunk over Kevin Hart
--------
10. Chase Budinger windmill dunk
11. Jeremy Evans with the eye-cam dunk
12. Derrick Williams with 20 attempts and 1 dunk
