Default What four players do you want to see in the dunk contest?

Who do you want to see?

I would like to see the following four.

Bledsoe
James
Gerald Green
DeAndre Jordan.

A mix of different types of guys.

I don't think Lebron would be that great in a dunk contest. He gets up and dunks hard but I don't think he has the creativity to win. For sure he would get a 50 on at least one just on raw power but he isn't doing Vince or 'Nique type dunks. No matter, he would never do the Dunk Contest anyway so we will never know.

Stern and the league office only wants certain players in it. Imagine the home run derby with only second basemen and shortstops. Wow so-and-so won it with 3 home runs! Fans want to see the best do what they do best. Anything less is just awful. IMO the Dunk Contest has not been good for over a decade.

Agreed. There have been some great dunks here and there but overall the event has been lackluster. Jason Richardson was nasty but since it has been a snoozefest.

NBA needs to figure something out to get marquee names involved. Back in the day you had the top talent in the league competing. MJ, Wilkins, Drexler, Julius. Even the remainder of the field had second tier talent.

I just don't understand why NBA keeps changing the rule every year. Fans get less dunks to watch. We have less players to join the dunk contest. The stupid rule that you required teammate assist couple years ago. The stupid rule that you required to do the same dunk from legends.

I want 8 players and 2 rounds. Btw, no more fan votes for the winner. That is just pure stupid for popular contest rather than for a true amazing dunk.

How come people are listing players that have already been in it? If we are allowed to do that then I would love to see Vince Carter, Jason Richardson, Gerald green" and Igoudala" again. A dream lineup with former and current players would have been

Vince Carter
Shawn kemp
Michael jordan
Jason Richardson
D. Wilkins

Lebron James
Kevin Durant
Jimmy Butler
Blake Griffen

This is something i just dont understand..... why put lower tier poeple in a contest. If the NBA wanted to make this popular again, they would make it mandatory to the top 8 guys. Everybody wants to see durant, james, melo, kobe, b. griffen, howard, etc... Make those guys do it. It kinda cheapens it knowing that the best dunkers out there are not even competing. James wont do it bcuz he knows he'll lose. And i think with jimmy buckets' crazy explosiveness, he would be very exciting to see(can ya tell im a bulls fan? ).

Terrence Ross
JaVale McGee (got royally robbed)
Alonzo Gee
Josh McRoberts!!! << All seriousness, this guy is an AMAZING warmup/goof off time dunker. Used to see him whenever his team came to Cleveland and during warmups and shoot around he throws down some of the craziest, nastiest dunks I have ever witnessed

James White
Lebron James
Blake Griffin
Kevin Durant

Watching Durant's horse competition is more fun than watching slam dunk contest.

im curiosu to see how he would do in a contest like the dunk contest though. he has some monster dunks in the game, he has good handle and can probably use those long arms to his advantage. plus again, its all about star power, last years dunk contest was a joke bc unless your 5'9" nobody cares if a role player or scrub wins the contest.
