    They need to put the DUNK CONTEST back to how it used to be. Players that are Rookies - 3rd year players. Players that actually play minutes and contribute to their teams also. 6 - 8 participants. for each dunk, they get 1 minute to complete their dunk. So for next year, everyone wants Zion. Ok. but whoelse are players that will be rookies - 3rd year players? Tatum? Donovan Mitchell? Dennis Smith Jr.? Kyle Kuzma? Kevin Knox?

        I agree with everyone about having a kind of the court type matchup. Everyone would pay money to see Lebron vs KD. Giannis vs anyone Russ vs Dame..It would probably have to go by position, but yeah that would be sick.

          Max forgot that Zach Levine played against Aaron Gordon who probably should have won but they couldnt go higher than 50 lol.

              Simple fix for the dunk comp, Rise the rim a few inches after every made dunk to see who can jump the highest.
              And see who can jump the longest out from a 10 foot rim.
              Make it like a high jump, long jump event.

                          I would like to see player's call each other out and do one vs one during the game. Lol let them go back and forth a couple of times . KD vs giannis trying to play D or curry vs klay

                                Max is such a moron......Diallo jumped over Shaq and threw it down with his elbow at 6'5".....That's some Vince Carter type athleticism.....Not as flashy, but still stupid athletic.

                                  Max just skipped J-Rich vs Desmond Mason in front of nique and Jordan..or Superman Dwight howard..NExt Year is up to Zion to restore order.

                                        NBA is heading into a direction where only playoff is worth watching. The intensity just isn't there anymore. Playoff games feel like what regular season use to feel, and regular season game now has the same intensity of what all star game had. And all star game is a joke, just an exhibition of how to score. I miss psychopaths like Jordan and Kobe because they ALWAYS cared about winning.

                                          The only thing I think that would ad excitement to the nba dunk contest is to bring guys that win those street dunk contests in versus some nba players, and if one of them win they get like a 10 day nba contract to give them a chance.
