Iguodala's dunk from behind the backboard was insane too.

AI should have won. He was robbed but damn Nate had some creativity going.

Iguodale should have saved that dunk for the finals.

Nate's dunk over Spud was historic.

Though my favorite going in was Iggy, I think Nate earned it. I wish he would have been able to pull off the dunk he wanted in the overtime. That was a really, really flashy dunk--for a guy of ANY size.

I think this dunk is the best that I have seen ever. Better than MJ's leaning dunk that the fan's voted best of all time.

How many tries are you allowed to dunk?

aside from iguodala's dunk from behind the backboard, i didn't think he deserved to win over nate. but the thing about nate was that he missed so many attempts. if they were competing under old rules, nate would have gotten zeroes. so it's debateable both ways.

i didn't know that the new rule allowed unlimited attempts.

Ai got robbed. At least one of nates dunks deserved a score in the 30s. The second one in the first round anyone that can dunk can do. Yeah he is short but come on. I wasnt overly impressed and really the spud dunk wasnt that great either. Honestly i wish the guy from the and 1 thing was in it. He does the kiss the rim better than jordan did. BTW the best dunk in a contest ever was vince's 360 the wrong way windmill. Hands down.

I could really care less who wins, all I know is it was fun to watch. The guys really showed up to put on a show.

vince's reverse 360 isnt the best dunk imo because josh smith did it last year

Vince's was by far the better looking one. He had so much style, put so much strenght into it, the way he was literally bouncing afterwards... Man, that dunk was the shit.

i think vince's "catch-the-ball-then-go-between-the-legs" dunk was better than the windmill.

I think that the slam dunk competition should be scrapped. It was terrible..pathetic... disgraceful. ... I hope for broken ankles for anyone involved in this competition from here on out.

The and 1 guy does a much better job of the kiss the rim then smith did of the 360 windmill. Watch the first city slam thing. Vinces 360 is mostly considered the best dunk ever. As it should be. As for an event what would be the best but you would never get guys to agree to it would be a simple 1 on 1 tourney. Say 8 people 500k to winner winner takes all. If you could get the lebrons kobes and tmacs of the world to participate it would be awesome.

I guess the "catch-the-ball-then-go-between-the-legs" dunk was more difficult, but I just think of Vince's reverse 360 windmill as the most spectacular. Can't find the right words, but everything was perfect, the way he threw it down so hard, the way he bounced afterwards, just the situation, meaning that it was his first dunk of the night and so on...

It was simply the most entertaining dunk in the NBA Slamdunk Contest for me to have watched.

Speaking about great dunkers, does anyone of you know Kadour Ziani?

I think the abortion rate would go up if pregnant women were forced to watch NBA's All-Star weekend... Surely they wouldn't want to subject their children to such...

Jason Richardson's between the legs off the backboard is better than Vince's between the leg

In fact JRich's between the legs the opposite side from the baseline is better than Vince's

The 360 windmill is still the best dunk ever though.

Could you please stop the hatin'?

The Allstar Weekend is about the fans. And the fans like it.

Does no one else think the 1 on 1 tourner would be a good idea if they could get people to participate. Granted they probably couldnt but i would love to see that. Say 8 man tourney with something like
Wade vs Lebron
Kobe vs Tmac
Dirk vs Garnett (why not throw in a couple of skilled bigs?)
Pierce-Arenas

You can use those 8 guys or change dirk and garnett for maybe ray and redd? You really should draw for the matchups and then go tourney style but still with those matchups you have the kobe tmac winner play the dirk garnett winner. You have pierce and arenas winner play wade vs lebron winner. Then you have the last 2 play in the finals 500K to the winner. I GUARANTEE you that would kill in ratings.

Those guys would never play because there would be too much cred lost

exactly. too much credibility lost, and risk of injury in one-on-one games. it won't happen.

If giving Nate Robinson 14 (and possibly more if he missed on the 14th try) opportunities to dunk isn't an indication that the dunk competition was rigged in his favor, I don't know what would be...

You're right...It's a joke for a guy to miss that many slams and still win the title...even when it's a joke of a title such as the 'slam dunk title'.

The Spud Webb dunk and Iggy's behind the backboard dunk were fantastic. I still want to know what the heck Josh Smith was thinking when he put that tape on the floor.

I'm really not a fan of the slam-dunk contest. I'd care more if had guys like Irving, Jordan, Wilkins, and Carter in it, but Josh Smith and Nate Robinson are marginal basketball talents. If I just wanted to see guys who could jump, I'd watch Olympic track where they jump higher and farther. I don't like the 3-point or skills comps much either, but at least they have All-Star talent competing in them.

There were no All-Stars competing in the dunk competition. Still to see little nate robinson dunk is a treat to watch. Iguadola is a helluva an athlete. It is too bad he can't have the ball in his hands more in Philly.

I like the three point competition. All-stars occasionally compete Qrich the lone exception.

The only way that the slam dunk contest would have been interesting is if someone would have busted their head open on the backboard.

Andre got close. BUT, ...no blood no sympathy

That's what made the AI dunk so sick. That guy actually ducked his head and still had the hangtime to dunk the ball.

Nate showed he could jump and that Spud Webb nostalgia was nice... but Andre's behind-the-backboard dunk is easily the most dangerous and arguably the most difficult dunk ever that I've seen. He should have saved it for the finals!

The more I look at these pictures of Nate's dunk over Spud, the more impressed I become. The kid has some crazy springs.
