I think that Dwight wouldn't have had to "throw" the ball towards the hoop if the hoop had actually been 12 feet like he wanted. :)

Dwight's dunk was more impressive though. Regardless of how much of a "dunk" it was, that's a very hard thing to do. Green's dunk was VERY creative, but i'm sure that just about any great dunker could do that if they tried.

the superman dunk was not a dunk so the birthday cake dunk by default.

however, dwight's first dunk (from behind the backboard) and his first 2nd round dunk (tap off the backboard) were >>>>>>>>>>>>>> birthday cake dunk.

Did Dwight have to bring up Soulja Boy? I laughed so hard when he brought out the cape and everything, but once he indicated that he was referring to the Soulja Boy, I was like "Ugh."

But overall, I liked both.

yo i'm a dwight fan and was rooting for him and i think he blew gerald out for real, but that superman dunk was not a dunk, and this is a dunk contest! what should have happened, had the judges not reacted so quickly, is he should have got to try it again and i have no doubt he would have made it (he still had 1:30 left). when jamario missed his 2nd dunk, it still went in, and they didn't count it, they let him try it again. same thing should have happened for dwight's. that being said, the sh!t was def impressive regardless of the fact it wasn't a dunk. that was much harder to do than a dunk imo, but it comes down to the fact that he didn't dunk it, and this is the dunk contest.
