The best dunkers ultimately made it to the finals...and had a legendary battle. Could have gone either way. I'm not mad that Jones won. I hope both come back next year with Zion and Ja joining the bunch.

re: Dunk contest
Aaron Gordon has stated he’s not doing another dunk contest felt like he’s been cheated twice and Ja has said after watching this dunk contest that he won’t participate in one either

The dunk contest is dumb. Blake Griffin might as well have jumped a shark when he jumped over the hood of a Hyundai.

I agree. Dumb. If they outlawed props, I might watch it.

re: Dunk contest
This one was legit though. There were some creative stuff. Not props wise, just stuff I hadn't seen before even in youtube videos.

We arguably saw 3 of the top 5 dunk contest dunks ever in 1 contest. It was incredible to see and I'm happy it's relevant again.

That said; Aaron Gordon got robbed again.

re: Dunk contest
Props can be fun to watch, but I do think they frick up the competition, for the most part.

I agree.

May sound silly but something like only every other dunk can have a prop may be nice.

I like seeing the props, but every single dunk having one, not sure I like that.

I know we seem to be reaching the limits of what can be done, but judges need to penalize guys for doing essentially the same dunks over and over.

Judges also either need a bigger # to score from instead of 1-10 or to bring back decimals, not just half points. Give a 9.3 if you want, that's fine.

And finally, every dunk you miss should come with an auto deduction to the score. Half a point works for me. You don't want to penalize it too much as it would be less incentive for guys to take risks and go big, but there needs to be some kind of penalty. You shouldn't get a 50 for a dunk you make on your 3rd or 4th attempt.

Or they could set a new baseline.

Watch some previous contest before the next dunk contest and reestablish the scoring structure. The problem is the people they put their to judge are not really fit to be judges. Either they have never really dunked like the contestants or can’t stay objective/consistent in scoring with out giving a 10 every time.

Gordon by far had the best dunk with the 360 one handed dunk off the side of the backboard.

Dwight Howard got a 49 on the most pedestrian dunk of the night.
