    Default Slam Dunk Contest!!

    For those who did not catch the Slam Dunk contest, it is a must watch final. Some of the best dunks ever, one of the best finals of all time.

    I was just about to post the same thing. Gordon's dunks were ridiculous and LaVine's looked so effortless. That they made their dunks on the 1st or 2nd attempt made the contest even better.

    Here's a link that shows most of the dunks from last night. You'll need to scroll down to see each individual dunk. Gordon's 360 while getting the ball from the mascot rotating on the "hover" board was poetry in motion. The slo-mo on LaVine's alley oop dunk from the free throw line was amazing.

    I really think Aaron Gordon should've won after his second dunk but it was still a great dunk contest.

    Watched the whole thing in a couple minutes of highlights.

    As far as the All-Star game, I turned it on for a few minutes to take a look and see how it's going. I watched guys leisurely jogging up and down the court, no one playing any defense, and 3-pointers from ten feet beyond the arc, taken with 20 seconds left on the shot clock. It generally had the appearance of a playground pickup game between the world's best players after they had just finished running a marathon.

    Now, I get it - I know they're not going all-out because there isn't anything riding on it, teams don't want their stars injured in these games, and that it's purely for entertainment value. But I'm just not entertained by half-ass displays, whether all the NBA's best are on the court at one time or not. That said, I changed the channel and reaffirmed why I haven't watched the NBA All-Star game in over a decade now.
