Me either. Good in game dunkers, but I don't think they have the ups or creativity to compete.

It's pretty obvious that Andre doesn't want to do it because he was robbed last year. you can tell by reading from that that he really thought he should have won it and that the whole long process only to lose in the end really did suck.

Nate robinson's winning dunk last year wasn't so creative as we have seen those dunks before.

AI was totally creative. I think he should have won

I honestly think Kenny Smith was the culprit of the robbery. He obviously saw over the judges shoulders before he raised his score. What a prick.

First of all I think we can all agree that Iggy only had like 2 nice dunks... but that was still better than the midge that got 60 retries. Everyone knows that. No point on participating if the winner is already decided.

Chris Anderson > Robinson.

If Nate throws down the off the board between the legs, where would that rank all time in terms of contest dunks?

imho, they should change the dunk system.

Give that **** a timelimit. Nate Robinson probably used up like a career of dunks.

1 minute time limit imho would be great. 30 seconds in college would work fine. But not as many attempts as you want before you can throw it down.

Quick, somebody take out Finley and Barry. Maybe White may get the call-up. Gerald Green also has to be in this. Carney and Warrick would be fun to watch in this as well.

Default Three Strikes

Give 'em three strikes.

The judges score all three, then pick the best of those as the player's score for that round. The Nate & Birdman show needs to stop. Who the *!& is going to find that interesting?!

Increase the prize and see who will participate then. Give the big dogs a reason to risk it.

Maybe make it a % of their salary or something. So a first-round, 1st year guy would be competing for something like 30,000 (3M*.01), while a Kobe or Vince is competing for something like 150-200K.

IF there were 8 participants, like the good old days...

Gerald Green
Dorell Wright
Trevor Ariza (if he's healthy)
Rodney Carney
T.J. Ford
Luther Head
Smush Parker
James White

If Nate Robinson MUST be in it, can we get a split screen, like the 3-point contest, and when The Little Gangster is attempting his dunk 15 times, Helicopter from the And1 tour dunks at the other end of the court?

Rudy Gay needs to be on that list... and also, i think iggy wouldn't want to do it after last years robbery, even though he lists other reasons.

seeing as how he got robbed once who can blame him. If that dumb midget does try to dunk again I really hope he embrasses himself bad. I was rooting for him right up till the point he got 20-something attempts on one stupid dunk that wasn't even very good.

lol, CO-SIGNED!!!!!

The dunk would've been nasty if he had done it the first time. or even within the first 3-4 times. I was jumping outta my seat when i saw the attempt cuz it was something i had only seen in nba live, but by the time he did it i was just like damnit!! finally, now sit down.
