Good dunk+ movie refference. 9/10 in my book.
The setup was done very nicely, and it worked well at least to me. I really enjoyed it.

I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum on that one. The setup was so uncomfortable, awkward and distracting that I truthfully wasn't fully able to get a grip on what Chase was attempting and how it turned out. When he ran up to complete the dunk, I was still busy thinking, "Did Puff Daddy just say 'Black Power'?"

Tron dunk was probably my favorite. It was something new and he did a 360 windmill.

My other two favorites were White Budinger can't jump and Rubio lob to williams.

Listening to Evans' post-show interview, he implied that he intentionally used the cam dunk first so the second one would look a lot better.

Well, yeah. He wanted the audience to know he can do those dunks because of his freak athletic ability, and not because he's a power forward.

Chase Budinger brings back Cedric Ceballos` "hocus pocus" dunk from 20 years ago.


Kevin Hart assists Jeremy Evans` Karl Malone mailman tribute dunk.


Paul George uses Larry Bird`s picture as prop for his final dunk of the contest.

Derrick Williams - 360 dunk off the side of the backboard
Jeremy Evans - Catching 2 balls and dunking them both
Chase Budinger - Reverse while blind-folded.


If this is not creative and entertaining, then I don't know what is.
Last year contest still miles better, people like to talk about Blake's kia dunk, but there's many great dunk before that. Blake 1st round dunk was great, Javale's backhand tomahawk, n Derozan sick through the legs. The only good dunk in this contest is Paul George n Williams 2nd dunk.

Talk about that kia dunk, even that was more fun than Evan's mailman dunk

The more I think about it the more I'm pissed about how poorly executed the Paul George glow in the dark dunk was. Get everything right, full fluorescence and everything, and it's SICK. Was probably outstanding when he practiced it, then he got in a full arena with light everywhere.



Tell me that's not sick.
