Well, Gay is hurt and Nate isn't... but yeah.

JR Smith doesn't seem too gimmicky, so hopefully we'll see some old fashioned hard dunks, and less costumes and props.

Smith is actually a decent choice. Nate's only there cause he can touch the rim and he's 5'9". I can touch the rim and I'm like 5'7", so why can't I be in there? Sad day about RGay though, cause I pegged him at winning it all.

Im actually gonna watch it now. Smith has got a lot of creativity and should have gotten a 50 for that behind the back dunk he did a couple years back. He should give the crowd what they want, something the original 3 couldnt.

He does a ton more then just touch the rim, but when he wins with the 2 dunks ive seen him do in preparation, maybe you can win next year.

lol acting like you have hops like Nate The Great.... yea and i have a fadeaway like MJ, trust me.

I didn't say I could dunk. I said I could touch the rim.

Oh, and the dunk he did over Spud Webb was better than the dunk Iguodala did a couple of years ago? I dont think so.

The only reason why Nate's in there is because of his height. He's not as good as you're making him out to be.

You're 14 and 5'7"? Shit, yeah, I think you'll grow to be above 6 feet, Gurk.

I am 15 and 5-7. I highly doubt I'll be 6-0.
