another thing i thought was pretty funny. it was the last dunks and they told everyone to vote right, how was the timer still going to determine the winner via vote yet nick cannon already had the results in his hand? taking a page out of WWE's book huh NBA?
The NBA needs to stop putting role players and scrubs in there every year. Whether they like it or not, fans want to see the stars. How are fans, speaking more towards the casuals, supposed to get excited for role players and scrubs? How is a casual supposed to be excited to see Jeremy Evans & James White dunk?
People were hyped to see Blake Griffin in 2011. They wanted to see MJ and Dominique dunk. Watch the 2000 dunk contest. See how insane people were going for Vince. He could've went out there and did a simple one handed dunk and the crowd would've ate that shit up.
The stars need to get off their asses and do the dunk contest. I don't see why they don't want to do it. They don't have anything to lose. They won't lose the contest. The NBA will make sure they don't.
The stars would rather sit in the bleachers with their ridiculous outfits and fake glasses than participate in the contest. It's become associated with scrubs now, stars aren't gonna do it unless other big names do.
Honestly, I think the only way stars do it is if they raise the prize money.
Pretty much. It's the agents and Nike/Adidas/Jordan getting in those stars heads not letting them to do it.
Some people think the NBA should have like a one-on-one tourney during All-Star Weekend but that would just end up being a disappointment too. Because stars would refuse to do it because they're scared to lose to a lesser player.
