Lol at you guys saying white's whole career will be a failure from this point on. Hes finally back in the league, on a championship caliber team making millions playing basketball. Sounds pretty good to me.

I dont feel bad for a guy who has maintained longevity in a basketball career.
I doubt he's made millions. He's spent most of his career in the D-League and various teams overseas. He's played a total of 33 NBA games since 2006 for a grand total of 119 points.

The whole point is, his entire identity was associated with being a dunker. That's who he is, what he's been.

He's the Richard Simmons of the basketball world.

But he failed in the biggest moment of his life, yeah I said life not career. Unfortunately for most of these athletes they're life revolves around their sport, for him it was reaching this moment.

We may not understand because for the most part, our lives aren't conditioned towards a specific moment or purpose. He was conditioned to be the NBA Slam Dunk contest winner since he was a junior in high school. Thnk about that. Since he was a junior in high school all everybody associated with him was winning the dunk contest, all day every day by anybody that knew who he was.

And he choked.

Of course not casual fans, but there's still millions that do know him.

I agree. He's more known with the And 1, street hoops community. I guess it was just meant to be that he choked on the NBA level.

He's scheduled to make 1.7 million from the Knicks alone.
http://www.spotrac.com/nba/new-york-knicks/james-white/

And he was paid 1.1 million from the Pacers back when they drafted him.

That's not counting whatever money he made when he played in Italy, which was prob close to a million for those few years.

I have nothing to add, andgar and Rake already said it.

Those millions of dollars he has or doesn't have (plus a ring with the '07 Spurs - he played six games) can't buy a win in the dunk contest. Life is all about those priceless moments that can't be bought.

I don't think it was his age.

I think he just choked.

His life will be miserable now.

Can you imagine, you're entire identity is associated with this one day, you finally get to this day and you fail badly. He may go into a depression. I guarantee that he gets cut or traded soon.
Let's not go overboard the guys a millionaire and could go bang some hoes right now to get overboard. There's a lot of things more important than an overrated dunk contest where it will be forgotten in a few days if not today for casual fans/media.

I expected this Dunk Contest to be an all-time great, where it's a Green vs White showdown. I was really wrong...The final round was sick though with Ross and Evans.
