I liked the format and also liked the 1 dunk thing - just show your best, don't want to see your 2nd and 3rd bests ... I just wished they gave them 5 tries, 3 is too much pressure.

and Wall's dunk looked better, but TR's was more difficult IMO.

I agree that this was a terrible betrayal of the slam dunk championship legacy.

Teams are fun at all but now that I've watched it I'd prefer the dunk competition be an individual competition.

And any scoring system other than /50 is bunk

I like the east west thing. I like the way teams are being promoted over individuals. They should probably get fans to vote in the final two and let the judges decide between them, but that could be anti-climactic as well. Unless they get the best players in the game, it's not going to be what it once was. Because more than half the fun was seeing the best players in the game.

I love how people are making out like the slam dunk competition wasn't anything but a joke for 18 out of the last 20 years.

They should've made the 3 winners for head-to-head round compete on a regular format dunk contest. In this case, Ross vs George vs Wall. Dunk Contest is an individual event, although I like the freestyle round, and there should be a decisive winner out of all. It's really unfortunate for Ross that he didn't get to defend his title. >.<

Exactly lol. At least we get to see a new dynamic. I don't know if the players knew they only had one dunk though so we'll probably see better next year.

I agree with the big names coming out here, that's half the fun.

I liked the idea of a freestyle round, but just one more dunk was stupid

not sure what people expect from this competition, it's mostly for fun and I almost always enjoyed it, with the exception of two or three years. I like the fact that fans get to decide, eliminates shenanigans like Blake and KIA's marketing stunt. And if the fans get it wrong, so be it - who cares anyway. All the guys in the contest are great dunkers and I bet each could do everyone else's dunks if they got to practice them a bit.

Lol wtf was that? One dunk from each player and its over? They play it off as the east wins the contest, and then john wall wins "sprite dunker of the night", how lame is that... incredibly stupid. There could be one sick dunker on one side & he won't get through because his team sucks. Terrible format, the person who thought this up should be fired.
