Yeah, I was mostly talking about the atmosphere of it all, with the gay props and intros and Kenny Smith jawing it up. But now these guys are really doing some nice dunks. Good $#@!.
Why don't the superstars do the dunk contest? No one ever gets hurt. MLB superstars do the home run derby which is just as if not more physically taxing than the dunk contest.
The Evans dunk was sick btw.
That blindfold dunk was impressive. Plus he's white so he gets extra points
Dunk contest has been reduced to Anerican Idol. Been some good dunks, but this whole introduction thing is terrible.
With this being in Orlando, I was hoping somebody would jump over a pool full of gators.
LOL shaq with the rant about no superstars right before the trophy presentation
I used to look forward to the dunk contests, now I only look forward to the actual game. sad

The best dunker on the planet (James White) is currently playing in Italy. Another top dunker (Gerald Green) is in the D-League. This generation has great, creative dunkers but a lot of them just aren't good players.
Other than Lebron there aren't too many All-Stars out there who are good dunkers and haven't already competed in the dunk contest.
just saw the dunk highlights and thought it was pretty good. Loved the tributes to Karl Malone and Ceballos (Suns) with the old school jerseys. Thought the blindfold dunk was excellent - the most difficult (presuming he did not cheat) , the 2 ball dunk was ok- not that hard to do if someone can palm it.
disappointed that KD did not win the 3pt contest

I'm absolutely surprised that James, Wade, Durant, and Howard can even make a basket at all, considering that they all wear ridiculous hipster glasses.
Holy $#@!, I don't even think Lebron had blank lenses in his horn-rims.
Kenny Smith is really good as the analyst for the rising stars game. He's really awful as an emcee for the dunk contest.
And gagree on putting a huge cash prize for the winner.
Maybe they should follow the MLB model and have the dunk contest winner's conference have HCA for the finals. " This time it matters!"
Yeah, that Kenny Dobbs dude would smoke e'body.
david stern should just pay the real guys to be in the dunk contest, and then have them each have little kids to give $#@! to if they win like the skills challenge. it is getting embarrasing, and he would probably come out on top because of all the interest in the competition if good players were in it. they also need to not allow stupid $#@! like jumping over motorcycles.
slam dunk contest viewers are racist. white guy should have one no question.
If I was the NBA I would be embarrassed at how much better the Home Run Derby is than the Dunk Contest. I'm actually starting to think it's because the stars would rather look like a bunch of wannabe hipsters on the sidelines than show off their dunking skills. How things have changed.
When did Lebron and Herpes Wade become such douchebags? All weekend they've been complete $#@!s.
What the $#@! is up with this player intro?
Nikki manaj just put on the performance of a lifetime...wow she nailed that performance
Mary J. Blige sounded off-harmony.
Ahh. I love the All Star game. Kobe goes 110% every possession. I would kill Mary J. Blige to see him blow his ACL and MCL.
Look, I love Mary J Blige, but seriously, she isn't the strongest singer, and was way out of tune when she was trying to hold those notes. That was bad.
I hope Ernie, Craig, Steve, and Marv have some security to get them out of the arena
Is Andrew Bynum really the best center in the west? That is sad, where are all the elite big men?
