Revising the Dunk Contest

After watching Nate Robinson do this, a conservation arose in the comments between myself and Antone, the proprietor of You Got Dunked On and Hip 2 Da Game.

I've been a Nate Robinson fan ever since I saw him take the court as a Washington Huskie. I have a penchant for liking tiny guards who can leap through the building. But Nate's Dunk Contest thievery was a joke, and at times, the competition can be dull and outdated. Sure, Superman saved the day last year, but fresh ideas are always welcome, at least when they are good ideas.

And today, Antone had the best idea ever:

That's just filthy. As man who stands just 5'6", I've loved Nate since he was at Washington … although he didn't deserve his dunk contest win. Iggy torn down the house with that behind the net from Iverson dunk.

The dunk contest is a joke anyway..they should put Dikembe under the basket to try and block everyones dunks and then judge it that way haha

Wow. That's the best idea I've ever heard.

or they could even get Shawn Bradley out of retirement and in the first round you have to dunk over him and in the second round you have to dunk over Bradley and Dikembe haha

This needs to be done.

Please make this happen. Just imagine, two former Philadelphia 76er big men standing in the way of some awesome dunks.

Hell, let's throw Manute Bol in the mix too.

Brilliant idea.


BallHype: hype it up!
