    Dame's best dunk was during the group ensemble, or whatever they called it.

    Damion Lillard should have came out with Vince McMahon.

    Wall probably won because the judges freaked out. It really wasn't that great.

    I've posted this before. Since the 80s I've said the Slam Dunk contest always leaves me dissatisfied with the scoring. For a couple of years the League agreed and got rid of it, but brought it back.

    Against everyone else I always preferred the 3-Point because it is scored objectively.

    So how did Wall get enough votes when he went last? I don't believe that.

    Welp, Dame got shafted in the three point contest and the dunk contest.

    Wow... 1 individual dunk each and that's it?

    This bullshit is worse than those never ending misses from years past. Damn

    This was such a waste of time... From Nick Cannon to the East coast blowjob fest.

    I haven't enjoyed a dunk contest since vince carter, lillard gave me a reason to tune in this year but the NBA reminded me why I usually just catch highlights when I'm bored.

    Well......Lillard had best dunk of the night. Hope they dump this format. All-Star weekend been getting worse every year and I understand the need to change something up but please at least judge on the dunk and not that he had Drake with him.

    As far as the format, excitement, and execution is concerned, this was the worst Dunk contest I've seen in a long time...maybe ever. Just embarrassing lol

    The new West vs. East scoring system ruined the unruinable 3-Point contest, and continued the 30-year ruination of Slam Dunk.

    I'm hoping that the All Star Game doesn't turn into a game where Damian and LaMarcus are barely played.

    But than again, neither one of them is really into show-boating play, which is 95% of what the all star game is about.

    So, maybe I don't care.

    The NBA needs a 1 on 1 tournament for All-Star Weekend. That's the only thing that would make up for this horse shit.

    Slam Dunk is a real competition like pro wrestling is. It's always been like this. I hate it. I skipped it many years, and skipped big portions of it tonight out of boredom.

    Well shit, if you only need to bring a celebrity out, Dame should have banged Katy Perry under the hoop and then after he finished, do a quick one handed jam.
