quote:Yeah. So maybe it would be worth watching again. There hasn't been anything entertaining about it in several years. I no longer care to make it a point to watch. I used to.
oh, so you want to "fix" something you havenet watched in years.
Missing multiple times just destroys the excitement. At the same time, if the NBA eliminated the 1:30 time limit and only gave them 2 chances, then most of the guys this year wouldn't have successfully gotten down a single dunk which would have really sucked.
quote:The last one I enjoyed was Dwight Howard. Not because it was a great dunk contest though, but because I was a Magic and Howard fan.
when was the last dunk contest that you enjoyed?
quote:It is almost always a let down.
what made you stop wanting to watch it?
It is almost always a let down.
Vince Carter's may be the best individual dunk contest performance.
Kids today may love the current version the same way I loved the former version.
I mostly blame Brent Barry for the demise of the dunk contest. Vince tried to save it, but Brent did too much damage.
quote:That was a good dunk, but in real time, it was probably hard for the judges to appreciate it. However, you had Shannon Brown and Gerald Wallace doing dunks that I could do in college. It was a fairly disappointing and not that entertaining top me.
Go to 0:14 and look at Derozan's dunk
did you hear what he got for that dunk? a 42. a forty fricking 2
However, you had Shannon Brown and Gerald Wallace doing dunks that I could do in college.
It was a fairly disappointing and not that entertaining top me.
quote:Why was that a point? It has nothing to do with the discussion.
the point was that derozan does a vastly superior dunk to what kobe did, and kobe gets a 49 then and derozan gets a 42 now
quote:No, those would have been week even then.
those dunks would have been huge dunks in the 80s/90s though
quote:Jordan's free throw line dunk was far better than what Wallace and Brown were doing. Also, Jordan gets some credit for actually jumping from the free line while most that do it always step just inside it.
jordan won 2 dunk contests with a fricking FT line dunk. that dunk means nothing nowadays
quote:Has nothing to do with it.
Some hack on ESPN said it's boring so here we are with threads like this..
quote:Missing the point to be a dick or just because you are dumb?
I'm not sure how some can't appreciate some of those ducks you listed though
