Default Re: Green's Birthday Cake Dunk or Dwight's Superman Dunk

Birthday Cake.

I liked the Superman thing, it was creative and he got high. But it wasn't from the ft line ( I know he didn't pretend it was) and he still couldn't make it to the rim.

You got debunked, move on. Now you're just being a public idiot.

Dwight Howard was on a different level tonight...he is AMAZING I was rooting for him to win and he did. He deserved it more than Green and the judges and audiences votes prove that.

The idea of the Superman dunk was better, but if he had actually dunked it instead of threw it in it would be better.

Superman = Birthday Cake

Can't choose.

If you go back and watch, Howard slowed down and actually jumped with both feet before taking off. If he really wanted to, he could of gone full speed and made the dunk, but that wasn't the point of the dunk. He meant to throw it through.

If #1 qualifies as a dunk, then why doesn't Dwight's?

Yes, he did. Howard does those dunks in practice all the time. In fact, if you want to see that exact dunk done already, you can get it via youtube by typing in "Dwight Howard USA" and you'll see the layup line video where he throws it through instead of actually dunking it.

Either way, if he wanted to move up a couple of feet and actually touch the rim and dunk it, I'm sure he could have. I'm certain he's practiced it before from that distance and knew he couldn't touch rim. He meant to do what he did.

So, his goal was not to dunk it in the dunk contest? Alright, whatever you say.

Except it was a dunk. We've gone over this already.

They can count it as one, but technically it really wasn't.
Nothing against Dwight here, he's one of my favorite players, but I'm just stating an opinion.

Technically it is, just look at all the definitions and proof.

In your opinion it isn't a dunk, which I understand.
