I remember Lamarcus Aldridge said on First Take that Lebron is more in game dunker and would not have the creativity a Green or White would have.

Lets be honest he can jump high but he's not going to do what VC and Gerald green can do in the air with their flexibility.


I think James White is going to be incredible. he's 30 but that guy was so ridiculous and natural hops that he can still do free throw line in his sleep. I also think gerald green will be great too.

On the west, Im curious to see bledsoe

Lebron is not the type of a leaper (two foot) like VC or Green.... he is exactly like James White, distance dunker / one leg leaper (they jump much higher that way), thats the type of dunks he would be able to do....

Lebron does not have the hang time of a White or Green. Like hes the best player on the planet but he does not have their hang time.

I actually like the format but too bad the east is way stronger than the west (at least on paper) so the final round has bust potencial.

Solid judge selection too. I believe Gerald Green's claim, should be good.

IMPOSSIBLE.

LeBron is faster than Usain Bolt. That's just a fact.

I once saw him put a quarter on the top of the backboard and he came down with a 100 dollar bill and an omelet. Also a fact.

LeBron is actually a natural lefty, but has been using his right hand the entire time to give the rest of the NBA chance.

I'm glad to see the return of six as well. Ideally, I think I'd like to see three first round dunks (dropping the lowest score) so there could be some more room for risk taking, but I'm honestly just pleased to see six contestants and the return of a semi-normal format (minus the lame fan voting in the final).

I just watched a Clippers.com video and Bledsoe just did a freaking between the legs dunk off a bounce from a teammate. Dude is an underdog but will put up a fight.

None of this, oh, im too pretty to be in it shit.

All the greats have. WE need to start a mass twitter attack on him. We need him in the dunk contest next year. Do the AS Game in South Beach if they want. Even let Dwade in if they want.

let James white in it. Russel Westbrook, and anyone else who can throw down some nasty jams.
dwade didn't make this year's all-star game?
