Currently watching All-Star Weekend 2006, made me think of this list. Still ridiculous.

The worst attempt I've ever seen was Chris Andersen, surprisingly...all of those crazy in game dunks and he couldn't make any of his dunks in the contest

He actually had a good showing in his first contest in 2004 and I thought he was kind of robbed by the judges: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acQEe43UznI

In 2005, I think he just bit off a little more than he could chew. My thought is he wanted to throw that alley from half court then dunk from the free throw line. That would have been unprecedented. Alas, turns out there's a reason no one's done it before.

Harold should've been there somewhere, eastbay funk should be ranked higher, no way is the cupcake nor Dwight on that list, where's Nique?

To be honest Kenny Smith's between the legs behind the back dunk >>> some of the dunks listed here if we want to give creativity and gimmickry so much weight.

Interesting to see the contrast between Chris Andersen's 2005 reception and Nate Robinson's 2006 reception. In 2005 Andersen was continuously the butt of all jokes for taking so many attempts. Then Robinson takes 14 shots at his final jam in '06 and he's lauded by the TNT crew for being strong enough mentally and physically to stick with it until he put one down.

Ummm ... significant size difference? Small arms, and he's a midget (5'8 generous listing) ... that takes ABSURD athleticism and stamina. Chris Anderson is like 6'9 or 6'10.

To be fair, Andersen was running from half court and attempting to jump from the free throw line (or just a touch inside) with each of his attempts. Regardless of size, that's also going to take a bit of athleticism and stamina. It was not as if he was just botching a routine flush. His dunk idea was a little nuts.

I understand, but c'mon bud. We're talking about a guy who is basically 5'6 in a dunk contest. Apples and oranges in terms of athleticism, and stamina.

True enough. I admit Robinson's subsequent appearances in the dunk contest sort of soured me on his dunk contest career. There was still a lot of novelty to his appearance in '06 (his first contest) and his first dunk and the Webb finish were fresh. His others jams were good too, but all those misses....

You're right though, the crowd just wanted him to succeed that year. I was taken aback by what he could do - I just wish he could have pulled it off quicker.

Not bad. No Jason Richardson off the backboard between the legs?

Also, totally open to interpretation (as is everything regarding dunk contest) but it's hard for me to throw Terrence Ross' dunk in the top 5 just because the execution struggled. Had he just come out and put that down immediately, I might be with you. However, after so many attempts, all surprise and incredulity had just about evaporated. And that's a big part of dunk contest dunks to me.

#3 I am fine with MJ's free throw dunk here, since it's probably the most iconic dunk ever performed at the dunk contest.

#4 would be MJ's leaning dunk.


And where the **** is J Rich's off the backboard between the legs?

I agree with Rake's on that one Blake dunk. The first attempt would have been an all-timer. By the time he finally hit the dunk it was just a normal 360...

This so much, came here to post this. That's number one, it's not about the hype or some other bs, it's all about the dunk and it's n1.
