Not his best dunk and I was not impressed.

Now if he had gone over the highest part of the car then I would have been.

One of the best finals, but not the best.

Far too many other great contest to put this one at the top.


I think the entire weekend was a fluke.

They pumped up Griffin to win this and he did.

They pumped up Kobe to win the MVP and he did.

And the halftime show was a total waste of time and space.

The all star game has become a total joke and not in the best interest of the NBA or its fans.

I wont go into detail but it has become a hollywood show and not fun to watch anymore.

I have to admit though, nearly all the dunks were spectacular this year, even Griffin's car dunk.

Each year I come away from the all-star weekend feeling better than I did before it started.

There were several really really solid dunks, and I liked the fact that all 4 guys came and brought it.

Dude who jumped from the free throw line,

Griffin had some really cool dunks,

Dude from the Wizards was super creative

And dude who had the one had pump dunk was one of the best pure dunks I'd ever seen


But you have to admit that in terms of the show that they all put on it was top notch, The all star game is about a show especially the dunk contest. The aspect made the weekend and this particular contest very entertaining. The choir and the car and kenny smith equals showmanship.

I like Blake Griffin... but the car dunk was stupid and not that impressive. McGees 2 basketball dunk was cool. His three ball looked dumb and he held the rim...should that even be considered a dunk. Demar Derozan's second dunk was absolutely ridiculous. Serge Ibaka not making it to the second round was just dumb. He had the best dunk of the night.

It wasn't a great dunk. Ibaka and Mcgee should've been in the finals.

Blake shouldn't have made it out of the first round. DeRozan got robbed. Did you see that second dunk... ewww. Blake, on the other hand, did a 360 and a windmill, 1 and 2 dunk respectively. Dunks that most NBA players could easily do. You knew the contest would go sour based on Ibaka only getting a 45 for a free throw dunk (the farthest one at that) and Blake getting a 46 for a simple windmill (after multiple tries).

The second round for both contestants was just lame. Blake does the Vince elbow dunk (seen it) and clears a 2-3 foot clearance (anyone of that height could do). All hype and no delivery. Fans should be ashamed for screwing McGee out of the title.

I guess I should have know this would all go down. He was insanely hyped prior. He was the only dunk contestant shown in the promos/intro movie to All-Star Saturday Night.

No, it was lame. It was full of Kia promotion and just was a cheap trick.

Kobe jumped over an Aston Martin. Jumping over a Kia and landing on its hood is lol
