This would've been the perfect year for Lavine to enter the dunk contest one last time. It's in the city he plays for and we would get to see a potentially epic rematch between him and Gordon.

Instead Zach decided to to compete in the 3 point contest this year

I understand Lavine doesn't want to be viewed solely as a dunker, but he couldn't compete just one last time............

He's the only one I'm interested to see. They need to get the superstars to participate in this event again though.
To my recollection...

...Dwight (when he was on Orlando magic) was the last superstar to participate in NBA dunk contest.

Why are nba players scared to compete in the dunk contest? Seemed like in the 90s all the big stars wanted to do it
Gift and curse of the bag...the upside used to be endorsements and other perks that dont hokd the same value anymore because NOBODIES are getting HUGE paydays.

So if Im of star caliber and quality I dont risk hurting my name amd brand competing with bums who have time to practice Dunking because they dont Play.

Also Also...in-game dunks are different dunks than competitive dunking so its just different l

Interesting, it took five guys to launch that mascot into the air like that.
One guy can lift another person.
Two guys can lift and throw a person a couple of feet.
Three guys can lift and throw a person and get minor air time.
Four guys, they can more than double what two guys can do.
Five guys, the power of team work. Imagine having five guys throwing you up over a fence so you can jail break. Probably break your ankle on the way down, but still...

Was more exciting than last year dunk contest and it was just basic Imagine giving Giannis time to actually prepare dunks. People would tune in vs all these nobodies

issue is simply that we’ve basically seen it all from professional dunkers and others. only thing we haven’t really seen is the double eastbay and J Clark actually did it but it looked like it was on a smaller hoop.

From a marketing stand point what do you think the fans wanna see, 35 year old Bron finally participating or 34 year old Dwight?

No one cares about these bums and thatís why the ratings are down. Stars bring the fans out and the fact that they are stars, they will perform like they do in the actually all star game which has better in game dunks than the damn premeditated contest
Ratings are down because everyone thinks they know it all but donít even check for the teams or players just look up stats and trending highlights. The nba All star weekend is a brand meaning at this point people will tune in no matter the names participating and the rating will fluctuate but stay consistently above average.

Management in Memphis should have let ja Morant enter the contest.

The missed dunk of the year over Kevin Love

The missed dunk in last night's Rising Stars game

He has the Star power to be the next great dunker

If he was added to the dunk contest then it It could be special.

Throwback to Vince Carter beating Tracy McGrady and Steve Francis in their Prime.
