I hope they televise the NBDL Dunk Contest. It looks like that I am not going to watch this year's dunk contest.

I don't want to see another Fred Jones wins the prestigious dunk contest.

Chase Budinger is not even dunk contest worthy athletic.

He's a GREAT volleyball style leaper and was one of the best collegent volleyball player in the country but ...

volleyball leaping =/= basketball leaping.

to be a great dunker you need creativity in your dunks.

instead it Jeremy Lin showcase that will be fixed from the start.

a certain demographic of people will tune in just to watch Lin pass the ball to Shumpert.


= ratings through the roof.

It worse because it all fan voting now, which guarantees Iman Shumpert is gonna win (Linsanity).

that's not a highlight reel. It's just a couple of dunks that show that the dude can dunk pretty well...


edit: he dunks off one foot in those video's. that probably contributes to it looking plain and average. Probably will go off 2 in the dunk contest right?

I'm sure I've seen worse, but I agree it's certainly not a stellar reel. I remember hearing a ton about Budinger's insane volleyball inspired hops but man, he is one of the plainest dunkers I've ever seen in terms of what I expected versus what I've seen. I have to say I'm at least curious about him though. Like, does he just have something against doing anything more than necessary during a real game? Because honestly, the stories of his hops have stretched far and wide. There's got to be something there, right?

I have no respect for Lebron if he never once in his life play in a dunk contest. it should definitely be Blake vs Lebron this year. Howard should play too. and also Kobe.

Kobe isn't a high flyer anymore. Far from it actually. Would be more interesting to see how run with the PGs in the skills competition.
