The clamor of fans for superstars to join the slam dunk contest has been on going on for years now. They have been salivating for dunk contests featuring superstars like Vince Carter, Tmac, MJ, Dominique Wilkins used to do before. If my memory serves me right, the last slam dunk contest that i think is parallel to that of slam dunk contest before was the dunk off between Dwight Howard and Nate Robinson. You can also put in the year that Blake Griffin won it all when he jumped over a car, or should i say jump over the hood of a car. That was a little over rated though, with the athletic genes that these dudes have, jumping over the hood of the car wont make fans jump off their seats at all.
Fans have been longing for the Blake Griffin vs Lebron James match up in a dunk contest, but Lebron quickly killed the fire saying that he is getting older and his legs are not fresh anymore so he won't join the contest. I dont know if he is getting older when you see him warming up before the Kings game and he does this:
The other night he warmed by going to the free throw line threw the ball between his legs of the backboard and tomahawked it down the rim. This is even sicker. Threw the ball up in the air, waited for it to bounce off the floor, gathered the ball between his legs and flushed it. I dont know how old those legs are. I just hope before he gets to 30, I hope that he gives us a show in the slam dunk contest, who knows this might be his WARM UP dunks for New Orleans next all star weekend. Blake should be watching somewhere. JA
