Default I mean cmon.. WHAT THE HELL

Before Gerald Green even attempted his no net double dunk, Kenny Smith is telling everyone on the air what Green is going to do. WHY IN THE HELL WOULD YOU TELL US EXACTLY WHAT HE IS ABOUT TO DO. No wonder this Slam Dunk Contest crap is declining in popularity.

In the end it doesn't matter because he did not complete the dunk in the given time. Additionally, once he did the dunk after the time was up, it was so lame that he should not have even attempted it in the first place...

Yeah, not a great dunk IMO

He has too much hops to be attempting a hold the rim dunk

Best part about the dunk contest is listening to Shaq and Barkley make short jokes about Kevin Hart.

Barkley is the worst sportscaster there is. That was by far the worst part of it. He wouldnt stop talking about random stupid #@#@#@#@.

The dunk contest has sucked for a few years now. Why even bother having it anymore unless you're going to get guys like Lebron in it.

He's funny as hell and he speaks his mind, not to mention very honest. LOL

I initially thought green was going to dunk the ball with his whole arm through the rim.

How about instead of having some guy in a Vince Carter jersey perform, actually have the real Vince Carter do it? Even at his age, he would have won tonight.

instead of giving them 1:30 maybe give them 30 seconds and have them do 3 dunks best two scores count...isn't that how they used to do it?

Then players would go for basic dunk rather than trying to do something risky. Also, most players don't even have 5 dunks under their sleeves to pull out during the contest.

I won't ever watch it unless a starter from one of the squads is in it

Come on LeBron if you want to compare to MJ you have to win a dunk contest

why do people say this? Has anyone ever seen lebron do a 360 dunk (i'm sure he has on occasion) or a between the leg dunk, around the back dunk?

He is a power dunker, i don't really see him doing all sorts of acrobatic, high vertical, staying in the air forever dunks.

If I remember correctly, he did a between the legs dunk in the remaining minutes of the rookie soph game back in 03.
