2008 Dunk Contest

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Gerald Green, the T-wolves 12th man, is the defending dunk contest champion.

But you heard it here first, Jamario Moon is going to win that baby. Rudy Gay is getting some help from people on YouTube for creativity, but nobody has the hops and invention like Moon.

The dunk contest is probably the best skills competition side activity for all the pro sports all-star games. I can remember Dominique versus MJ, Spud Webb, Vince Carter, Larry Nance, Dr. J.

I also enjoy the 3 point shooting contest just to see how well those guys can shoot it. If I had form like they did...well, let's just say I would be in the NBA long enough to finance my hunting and fishing lifelong retirement. I enjoyed the first competition in 1986 when Larry Bird walked out to shoot and told the rest of the guys they were playing for 2nd...and proceeded to back it up. He would win 3 in a row.

I liked the dunk contest with the rules from back in the day when it was Jordan and Nique........the way they have structured the contest the last 5-8 years has been horrible at times.......like the year they gave them each like 1:30 to come up with the best array of dunks???? There are definatley some good jumpers in the NBA and if they could get the best 8 and go froom there the contest would be alot more appealing......Just imagine having Carter-Kobe-Richardson-Lebron added to the contest then it would be a must watch....instead I will tape it and FF through it...........

It's kind of sad that the big names don't get in it anymore. There afraid if they lose it will hurt their image. I did like the one year when the "bird man" Chris Anderson was in it. He was my pick to win it that year. He had great hops for a white guy. 3-point contest is good also. Jump shooters won't win because it takes to much energy over that length of time. Your set shot guys will win. Didn't they get rid of the dunk contest for awhile and go with some shooting contest with the WNBA?

Dwight Howard won the dunk contest and didn't even dunk the superman dunk. He shot it...someone should look into the rules!

His dunk off the back of the backboard was pretty nice though.

When you're that high up and you throw it DOWN at the hoop, I'll count that as a dunk anyday! Wow!

Impressive dunks, no doubt. I don't care if he is almost 7 feet, that dude can GET UP! He should have saved his "sticker dunk" for this year's contest. Bron-Bron had a nice dunk before the end of the all star game.

I also have to give G.G. credit for the blow-out-the-candle trick. In other years that might have been enough to do it.

Looked like a fun weekend, interesting to see T.O. play in Friday night's game...2 weekends, 2 all star games to participate in.

gerald green was higher on the "birthday cake" dunk than howard was. howard simply had to be the height of a basketball over the rim. gerald got up so high that he could have touched the top of the backboard. his head was as high as howards extended arm during the superman "dunk"

howard should have received 0 points for that

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      sunday hopefully back on the ice

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
