Remember when people were hyping up Armstrong due to his absolutely brutal regular season dunks and his career, up until then, of just flat out wrecking the rim? Remember that?

Yeah, Jackson wasn't great (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQpMRCx00PI) but the simple fact he made two jams (including a solid-ish reverse) may be enough to put him over the likes of Tony Dumas (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FC3o2FXnZs), Larry Hughes, or perhaps even Bob Sura (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZYYxQJIbak).

Tim Perry in '93. Surprised it was only mentioned once here. Never have I seen a more unethusiastic dunker. It was almost like he didn't want to be there.

Perhaps rivaled by only one other similarly unethusiastic performance...

Yes, some of dunks were standard, but I felt his style, flavor, and power enhanced them to a significant degree. That regular two-hand bounce dunk actually looked pretty sweet to me, with his head nearing the rim and whatnot. And his 360 cuff, in my opinion, is one of the most overlooked dunks in contest history.

Where would Clarence stand now if he had that contest in 2014? Probably not too impressive. But for '93? I'd hardly call his performance disappointing, let along horribly embarrassing. Perhaps you were thinking of fellow 76er Tim Perry?

Ya know what, I was thinking of Tim Perry. I didny think Spoon was aweseome but it was Perry who was brutal. Yup, my bad.

I wish Lebron could have join the dunk contest in 2004. His between the legs dunk in the Rookie game >> Jones' dunks in that contest.

It would have been nice to see James in that contest, but I think a lot of people had better dunks than the things Fred Jones was doing that year (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2yfZ7yZ-XY).

Can anyone really watch that and not cringe?



Holy shit. I forgot all about the choir singing the Space Jam joint. Wow you're a bastard for reminding me of that atrocity.

That's something you do heroin to forget.

Worst ever is Nate Robinson trying the same damn dunk over and over and then when he finally made it no one cared.
