@BrosOfDestruction: Maybe back then, but one-on-ones wouldn't work at All-Star Weekend this year. The stars wouldn't do it. You wouldn't see guys like Kobe, LeBron, Wade, Rose, Melo, Durant, Westbrook, Griffin, Dwight, etc. doing it. Too scared to lose and hurt their "brand".
More than likely you'd see guys like Kyrie, Lillard, Tyreke Evans, Curry, J.R. Smith, John Wall, etc.
Why is everyone ragging on Ross on twitter? He was the standout of the dunk contest. It's not his fault a few guys choked. His dunks were good...
Too bad his attempts were out of this world.
If T-Ross shot 4/20 in a game, I bet your ass wouldn't be saying "But his shots were good..."
Because a lot of white people are struggling out here in these streets, so they take to the internet to vent. Imagine how low one must feel, that a whole country is geared towards your success, yet you cant capitalize on it
I agree with only 3 dunk attempts. And I think the format of the 2000 dunk contest was the best one. You get 3 dunks in the first round and your two highest scores are added together for your round score. The three guys with the most points move on to the final round and each get two dunks, whoever gets the highest score, wins.
We also need better judges. Seems like this year these guys gave 50's to any dunk that was completed on the 1st try.
