Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

I use to look forward to dunk contests many years ago but now I prefer dunks in actual games. With that said I'm sure some NBA guy will see this video and attempt it eventually.

Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

Dunking actually takes practice. Some of these moves require a lot of it.

BTW I've seen Blake Griffin live and in warmups he pulls off insane shit. Last game I was at he caught it off the backboard and went between the legs. Only other NBA player I seen do that is J-Rich.

And Nate Robinson in the dunk contest... after several attempts.

That two-ball windmill over a standing person duck from the video would be a crowd pleaser.

Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

The nice thing about youtube highlights is you don't have to see how many times they missed before they got it, ala the aforementioned Nate Robinson.

Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

I agree with the original poster. It was foolish for that to be said on TNT. There are an infinite amount of dunks that can be done.

Oh, I disagree with AllRim who says 3 point contest is greater than the Dunk Contest. I thought it was quite ridiculous that Kevin Love was able to win one particular round with only 7 points. Seven points for a 3 point contest could have been done by an amateur on the streets. : )

Yes. If they bring in athletic young wings for the Dunk Contest it would be a lot more entertaining.

And the past couple years the 3 point contest has been better than the dunk contest, hell the stupid thing at the start with the WNBA player, current player and retro player has been better than the dunk contest. I'd even rather watch the celebrity game.

lol yeah sure! It was so impressive watching Kevin Love win a 3-point shooting round against Kevin Durant with a score of 7!

Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

Better than the dunk contest. That was one round. The dunk contest has been shitty for years.

Haven't watched the video, but on top of not showing the misses, can we be sure it's a 10-foot hoop? Kinda gotta take a leap of faith there.

Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

A lot of those clips are from the Nike 3on3 Tournament. I was there and I can assure you most were on the first attempt with no more than two attempts.

Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

One round or not, 7 points in a 3-point shootout is a disgrace to the fans. No way on Earth should Kevin Love have been awarded for that horrible performance.

Re: every dunk has NOT been done in the Dunk Contest

Yeah, they should've ended the contest right then and there, right?

Absolutely! There should be an agreed upon minimum amount of points that must be obtained. Such a prestigious award shouldn't be a free handout! Just my two cents. If Kevin Love is a true competitor, I highly doubt if he is proud of that award.

It's like getting a 4-year college degree after only taking three classes. : )
