Default Dunk Competition Finalists - Whos Gonna Win?

So Rudy Fernandez has been voted in as the final contestent in this years dunk competition in PHX.

Who do you think will win it this year?

For some reason i'll be cheering for Rudy... I guess he's the biggest underdog.

Plus i liked his commercial lol NO VOTE ME

As far as winning goes, I think Rudy Gay is going to run away with it this year. Dwight Howard's win was some fluke ass shit last year, so I don't think he has enough to win it twice in a row. Rooting for the Spaniard.

Rudy fernadez on the dunk competetition is such a bad idea. I have never seeing him do a good dunk besides the usual ally-hoop. He can jump pretty high though so maybe he has some trick we dont know about.

I could care less about any of them.

Robinson will take a hundred attempts.
Dwight will just do something corny to get extra points on a plain dunk
Fernandez is the international flavour of the week
Rudy is there just because they need four.

LOL.
Robinson will be out in the first round because he'll try some stupid impossible dunk (for his height) and miss on each attempt.
Fernandez will try some crazy dunk that will require sergio rodriguez to alley oop to him, but the passes will keep missing and he'll end up wasting his attempts.
Gay will be boring, but will make it thru due to Robinson and Fernandez's misses.
D12 will reign supreme once again by doing one HUGE dunk at the beginning and riding that momentum throughout the rest of the comp.

I think Rudy wins this. He's a sick dunker - didn't he win a collegiate dunk competition when he was at UConn?

If D-12 wins it by throwing the ball into the net like he did last year, I'll throw shit at my neighbour - and I mean like my actual crap.

Actually me too.

Skills comp is stupid, the shit with the wnba and an old man is stupid cause not enough teams can even get involved, the dunk comp is stupid and the allstar game is stupid.

They need to get rid of the whole vote thing and have coaches, gms, writers etc pick the players instead of the fans and the game should mean something, like the division that wins has hime court in the finals

yuppers.
other than the 3 point comp, the rest of the weekend is so gimmicky and lame.
the skills comp isnt very entertaining, although it is my second favorite because we usually always see CP, deron, and Jkidd battle for the title. and anything with CP3 and Dwill in it will be fun to watch... hopefully Drose will be in it too this year.

but other than that...blah.
that wnba/old timer comp is ridiculous because all it comes down to is who can hit the half court shot first. its pure luck. teams spend about 2 full minutes trying to nail that shot and its just so stupid.
and the allstar game should be named the HOG star game.
one star after the other forgoes his entire team to jack up shot after shot.
the game is only interesting in the last 5 minutes (and only if its a close game).

Rudy sucked in last years comp. Moon did better than him. Howard was a fluke but will probably win again. Fernandez will get one or two good dunks and come in 3rd. Nate will suck and will get cheered for because he is so small

Meh. Don't care about the Dunk Contest. Looking forward to the Skills and 3-point battles. That's it. Don't even care about the actual All Star game. (Why am I so indifferent about it all this year?)

Honestly, they need a free throw contest for people who shoot under 50%.
Starring Shaq. Or something like a guard competition (ala skills) for big men like Shaq, Dwight, Ben Wallace
