These dunk contests now are absolutely brutal to watch. Explain to me how attempting the same dunk 8x unsuccessfully is good television?

Couldn't agree more. It all started with Nate Robinson's 20 attempts a few years back

Just like the NBA these days. More flash and self-promoting, than substance

If it weren't for all of the missed dunks, I would say it was pretty good. But when the dunk completion percentage is like 60%......not so much. I thought the Ross dunk over his painting and then him signing it was really cool, though.

Didn't matter since he couldn't put his second dunk down.

I totally agree, the last round was great, its all about the dunk %, you should know you can make these dunks in 2 attempts or don't bring them to this stage. White was way off, Gerald Green, Bledsoe choked. Faried shouldn't have been in the contest.

Gotta get the stars in. I like the contest overall, but it has to have stars.

Barkley ripping everyone was the best part of the dunk competition.

It's a lame attempt at a contest with all the stars dressed like hipsters. Really Carmelo and LeBron....sunglasses inside? That's what we call fake class.

lol, me and my brother were shaking our heads in disbelief and laughing our azzes off at the ridiculous outfits these guys were wearing tonight. durant's wearing a black shirt with ceramic stars glued onto it, lebron's tshirt with long leather sleeves sewn on, wow. i don't know what's going on with nba stars and fashion right now but it needs to stop. sad thing is someone is probably getting paid big money to style and dress these idiots.

yea they are trying to be stylish but you have to ask yourself the golden rule, would you get made fun of for wearing this if you weren't famous.

Maybe the stars will participate if they do a team format for the dunk contest with no winner. Most points from each conference wins and the prize money goes to charity. I have a feeling some are avoiding the contest due to a fear of the backlash if they lost especially in the YouTube/Twitter era. Other reasons might be the amount of time/energy needed to prepare about 4-5 different dunks.

It would be fun for the fans, and won't take so much time/energy for each player to prepare for. Even the old guys like Carter could participate. Just a thought.

Mike Wilbon called it 'Black Thanksgiving.'

I fall into Shaq and Chuck's age bracket. I love how they made fun of the youth fashion statements. I don't think we dressed that poorly. My wife kept commenting on the fake leather on everyone.

We're in the Youtube and Twitter era. Players like LeBron have a lot to lose and very little to gain from going in the dunk contest.

i know what ur saying but he's losing a lot of could be fans as it stands. and as much as people wanna act like if he didn't win it would make him look bad a)not really b) he'd probably win just from crowd reaction if it was close c) he'd gain fans

I'm not really up to date on modern hip/hop R&B, but this just sounds awful. Is this guy actually popular?

The all star game has basically just turned into one big ugly spectacle, it's a joke

Why do they need to have a mini concert between announcing each lineup?

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY to long for the pregame crap, I like hip hop and this is still annoying! What a joke, thought we'd be playing by 7:30 at the latest 8!
