    Every one of these guys is a MUCH better dunker than they seemed in the contest. The issue was that all of them had bad nerves. Why? Because the dunk contest is the most exposure any of them have ever had. Put in a megastar – LeBron, Durant, Rose, etc – and the dunks may not be as athletic, but they won’t lose the ball fifteen times on one attempt. That’s the reason the dunk contests with Dr J, ‘Nique, Jordan, etc seemed so good even if the dunks are a little tame by today’s standards. Those guys were too tough to flake.

      I hear the type of ball they used (for advertising purposes) was difficult to grip. That might explain why these guys had so much trouble converting, which sucks. Gerald Green has done this plenty of times before, so it’s hard to believe his nerve got the better of him.

    If superstars had been in it, and they had done the exact same dunks, everyone would be falling all over themselves how it was Top 5 All-Time Contest!
