WTH?

Through the legs off the backboard and slammed hard just messing around.
I thought the dunk looked almost flawless.

I think this is a case where somebody hates on it and other just follow that comment like sheep. It was a great dunk.

One thing real clean about this dunk...It was a no look pass to the backboard!

Check it again.

Why? The dunk contest is a joke anyways. Just disappointment year after year and of course obvious set-up product placement(like Blake's Kia car jump... of course the judges gave it a pretty much perfect score because they're paid to to promote Kia, even though the dunk itself was extremely underwhelming and not deserving of such a high score)

I don't even watch anymore it's so boring. I might watch it if Lebron was in it, but that's a big "if". No point in throwing Lebron in there by himself without some legit star competition to go up against him. Who wants to see a Lebron vs No-Name Scubs dunk contest? If they really want to spike people's interest in the dunk contest again, get some damn star-power in there.

Not at all - it was my reaction as soon I saw it. He did all of the acrobatics in the pass, but then the dunk is pretty basic, regardless of effortlessness.

The pass off the backboard isn't close to enough to actually make the dunk.

It's really stunning, all you ever do is to hate on Lebron and spam bogus about him.

But at the same time you went nuts everytime someone wrote less positive stuff about Lin, how come?

His dunks aren't very aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

No matter how many times he does that flying tomahawk on the fastbreak, it still looks amazing.

You have to have an extreme personal grudge to say none of his dunks look aesthetically nice. The power, speed and grace make for a nice picture. He's done some impressive statue of liberty style dunks too.

What are you watching?

It was a "through the legs PASS"
Feet came down to the floor.
Ball came off the backboard
He runs to grab the rebound and dunked it.

The pass was cool. The dunk was a'ight.

Cool, but no 50. Just low 40s.

I recall Nate Robinson doing something similar to this when he won one of his dunk contests.

I remember it cause he was given like a dozen mulligans in the process.

And similarly like this Lebron dunk, it's just mediocre.

That's the long and short of it. I would assume the original poster is just being sarcastic. Those pre-dunk activities always remind of Corey Maggette: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HAKRyGa91o#t=0m33s.
