It wonít be good until they get top talent playing. NBA need to up the bag and get the real superstar participating

He's the only one I'm interested to see. They need to get the superstars to participate in this event again though.
Which superstars? Who are these superstar dunkers?

Dame? KD? AD? Embiid? Luka? Harden? Kawhi?

Y’all been saying this sh*t for years and don’t even keep up with the game.

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

Why are nba players scared to compete in the dunk contest? Seemed like in the 90s all the big stars wanted to do it
They don't want to get injured is what they say

So did Gordon

The point is people would rather watch Giannis Westbrook scared a*s Bron, new stars like Ja Zion Tatum then these nobodies. Acting like there aren’t more entertaining star players that dunk.

Old a*s Dwight

Many feel Gordon won it. Thatís why heís in this.

Giannis already showed heís not a dunk contest dunker, it wasnít close.

Why the fu*k do I want to watch 35 year old LeBron in a dunk contest? You want to throw Tatum and a 31 year old Westbrook in there, for what? None of those n*ggas pride themselves as dunkers. Thatís the point I was getting at. The best players in the league arenít dunkers by trade, sure they can physically dunk a basketball but once you get to the league itís more appeal to a 3 pointer, pull up jumper, or eurostep than it is to do something crazy with an open lane to the basket.

Zion wouldíve been nice to see but heís coming off injury.

Too much politics in the dunk contest. Look at the year nate won. Iggy got straight robbed. They already crowned Blake. He almost threw it away. sh*t nique should've won before Jordan. Refs felt threatened and gave it Jordan.

No reason to hurt the bag. Zion maybe next year

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 that’s 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

The fans been tuning in regardless

Every year yíall dudes complain about the sh*t but watch, so whatís the point of crying? You gonna protest until you see Luka in the dunk contest, then protest, donít watch it

Just cause I donít want to see LeBron do 4 1 hand above his head signature dunks, doesnít mean I want to see Dwight either

Nobody give af about his dunks in the ASG.

That sh*t been a dunk contest forever, ever since T Mac threw it off the backboard nothing earth shattering done came from it. Itís just self alley oops, alley oops to teammates, and almost nobody going up to contest any of the dunks.

Seriously who is these n*ggas excited to see that? Find me 3 of them people, whoever they are who actually care about 35 year old LeBron dunking in the ASG. AND you want to put that in the dunk contest in 2020?

Give me a ďnobodyĒ like DJJ or Gordon.

Wasnít that the year Jason Richardson won the dunk contest?

Ratings for the NBA are down across the board for everything due to cord cutting. Back in our day as kids we all was in front of the TV looking at TNT all night, sitting thru commercial breaks with Sprite commercials, etc. Now people are doing 1 hundred million things on Saturday night & a lot of people seeing the dunks once they get posted on Twitter. They might retweet it, but they didnít tune in to see it live.

Like I said above, they still getting interest/views itís not pressing for them to switch it up because casuals complain about 10th men off the bench winning it instead of wanting to see if Kyrie can win it.

Lol just cuz you an elite player doesn't mean you're an elite dunker lol idk why n*ggas think that's the answer. As electric as Bron is he'd be boring in the dunk contest. Hell I remember the younger days when he did the one on espn when he was still in high school for the McDonald's game. n*gga didn't do much and he was prime athletically. Now he's 35, lol stop.
