***MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS***


























Did anybody catch the slam dunk competition tonight? That guy Nate Robinson's vertical is incredible! Reminds me a lot of Spub Webb's performance back in 1987. It was pretty cool of Dwight Howard to allow Nate to jump over him for his dunk, considering Dwight was his competitor. Great showing of sportsmanship by Dwight - Nate deserved the win with that dunk!

Nate and Dwight looked awesome. Also cool that Rose won the skills challenge. :wink:

I thought Howard got robbed again...I understand Nate is lacking in height, but he vaulted himself over Dwight with a little help from the hand, and what the heck was with that dunk of his in the first round, jumping off someones back to dunk it, that is not hard at all, we did that in PE in junior high because we couldn't dunk normally...Looking forward to Lebron next year, if they have him, dwight, and robinson it could go down as one of the best dunk contests since MJ and Dominque

I voted for Robinson but could have seen it go either way. The dunk where he jumped off that guy's back was only awarded 41 points which was the lowest score, but he was high enough after his first dunk it didn't matter. Yeah, he used a hand a little bit, how many 7-footers have you jumped over lately? :tongue0011:

Kinda reminds me of the dunk when Vince Carter jumped over that 7'2" guy in the Olympics a few years back.

Yeah, that dunk was lame, I actually thought that maybe he was going to do that to put his arm through the rim like Vince Carter did a few years back. I don't know if you saw the replay or not, but his head was closer to the rim without jumping off of his buddy's back.

I had no interest, was it any good?

It was HORSE, lol.

It was kinda cool to see Durant have all but one letter for most of the game and come back to beat Mayo and Johnson. There were a few cool shots, but nothing to spectacular.

Glad I didn't watch it then. I thought the idea was pretty lame, sounds like it was.

Actually, there was one part definitely worth watching. At the end, they gave the award to Durant, and it was just a little girls toy horse. Classic.
