im not to upset about the lineup for a couple reasons

there are no really big stars there, which means the fan voting wont be extremely biased toward one person

these guys also dont seem like guys that will go out and do a bunch of prop dunks.

that being said i still wish derozen would compete again. he got schifed two straight years.

also i hate fan voting... nothing against new york, but hey obiously have a ton of fans so shumpert has a clear advantage if he gets to the finals plus if he has jeremy lin helping him he will gain a ton more votes, while indiana, houston, and minnesota fans are as abundant.

Personally I never gave a shit about who wins the contest, especially since they implemented the fan vote. I just wanna see some good dunks so that I replay them when they get on youtube.

Definitely cheering for Shump in this one. Been a fan since his days at Tech and now him apart of Rush Hour 4 with LIN makes him even more better.

Derozan said he would never join the dunk contest unless it was in Toronto because of what happened last year with the Blake Griffin screwjob.

Very well may have been. Richardson had one great dunk that topped D-Mason.


I still think this dunk at 1:13 is one of the sickest I've ever seen in the contest.

The distance + the style...omg

This is going to be a great dunk contest. I think Budinger should've been replaced by Terrence Williams though.
