Dunk contest is a JOKE

Back in the day we had the NBAs best, dunking on their first attempt.

Today we have a bunch of unknown kids TRYING to dunk and FINALLY nailing one after the 15th attempt.

Who were those people in the dunk contest? Never heard of them. Why should I care about them and who wins?

I cringe every time I see a slam dunk contest these days. It's just so bad and gay. There is no "magic" any more. Noone cares. The crowd hardly even cheers.

Perhaps they should've held the event every 4 years instead of every year. They've just drained it. Players have run out of dunking ideas. Too late now..

And they should let the fans pick the players they want to see in the dunk contest.

And how gay/crap were some of the dunks?

That "Manimal"s first attempt. WTF was that? And he seemed sad when they gave him such a low score. Like DUH man, were you realy expecting 10s with that?

That dude with the flight attendants.. I could've jumped further than that (if I was his height) AND MADE THE DUNK. I was expecting him to jump behind the free throw line (as was everyone else) and then after missing 5 attempts (1-2 feet after the line) he jumps from about 3 feet after the line and dunks it with 2 hands.*Yawn*

Geez.. then you had that other clown who cut the net off and tried (and tried and tried and tried..) doing that STUPID dunk which even if he made it (which he did AFTER the time ran out), it was STILL sh*t and would've gotten an 8. He was better off doing a simple double pump reverse dunk with his legs open in the air.

Worst dunk contest I have ever seen. I'd rather record/film myself doing 360 degree layups and then watch myself.
