Default 2013 Dunk Contest = Underrated

LMAO @ everyone on twitter and facebook complaining

There were a good number of solid dunks in there that aren't getting enough credit.

It was definitely better than people are acting like. But those two fails by Green and White really took the air out.

Yeah I wish Green could have done the Earl Manigault on the first try without hanging onto the rim... would really love to see that dunk done properly.

Maybe some shorter leaper (6'0 - 6'3) will come along and pull it off.

its not about the dunks


its like 99.99999999999% about the number of attempts every single guy had before they completed their dunks

i think every single dunker until the finals couldnt complete a single dunk 1st try

and most of them had 5 attempts+ before every dunk


if you were watching all of them for the first time in a recap on sports center... then it would look like a decent dunk contest


but it was like 6 chris andersons out there...

5 years from now the Evans painting dunk will be remembered in similar fashion as Green's candle dunk. The dunk itself wasn't all-time great but the creativity was brilliant.

All of the missed dunks took the air out of the building. Seeing a guy attempt the same dunk 5 times is so anti-climatic.
