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

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles.

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
