If I want to see acrobats, I go to the circus or, to see it more gracefully prformed, Cirque du Soliel. If I want to see a basketball game, the NBA is no longer the place to see it. Most of what we see now in NBA games is a bunch of tall people pushing each other aside so that someone can demonstrate that very tall people can stuff a ball through a ten foot high hoop. The people who get pushed aside have each developed their own carefully choreographed fake flops to pretend that they were fouled or hurt. We also see a carnival sideshow of gaudily tattooed bodies on display. Most of the "art work" on those bodies looks as though the person has dirt or mud covering the exposed areas of skin.
Exactly....When I used to watch Bob Cousy play for Holy Cross College back in 1949-1950 the SLAM DUNK was not allowed....it was also an offensive foul to even touch the rim....a much more classy game than now, with many of today's players showing their hockey and football lineman skills... I guess that's what todays fans want?
good but not great
When someone jumps from the foul line to dunk it like Dr. J and Michael Jorden did, then I will be impressed
this is my top 10 dunkers of all time. M.J.,Connie Hawkens' Dr.J, Domineque Wilkins,Spudd Webb,David Thomson,Dr. Dunkenstien,Wilt Chamberlin,Elgin Baylor,Darrel Dawkins
My favorite dunking nickname. Chocolate thunder.
Sorry, but nothing remarkable demonstrated, He never dribbled the ball, Would have been called for traveling. He dragged his feet across all three of the men who just happened to be lined up. If you notice all three were not happy, and can be seen rubbing the back or their heads.This one of the reasons that basketball no longer has any interest for me. Were they playing by the same rules that were in effect when players like Bill Russell was playing, they could not cut it. The big players are so clumsy, they can barely make a shot from the free throw line. They had to make rule changes so these big oafs could play the game.
Can you do that? The dunk was impressive.
When a man is 5'6" and dunks, like Spud Webb, now that is a dunk. When you are 6'5" plus and do the same, that is not dunking, that is a lay up. Bottom line the rim needs to go to 12 feet. Now that would be an impressive feet, and good reason to give the players outrageous contracts.
that would be impressive feet, like the movie Happy Feet
Oh please... what a great dunk.. who cares to be so critical.. good dunk my man.
Figures. The female judge gave him a 9. Shows how much she knows about basketball.
HE PUSHED OFF THE FIRST GUY IN THE GREEN SO BAD. ANYONE CAN DO THAT!!! THIS DUNK SUCKS!! I'D RATHER WATCH MY TURD HIT THE TOILET.
