If that's the rule, then why would the NBA try to break it and ask LeBron???

LeBron declines to dunk but accepts skills challenge
Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The NBA asked, and LeBron James said no.

James said Monday he declined the NBA's request that he participate in the NBA's All-Star dunk contest. He will, however, be in the skills challenge.

"They didn't beg or plead, I just declined," he said before the Cavaliers' game against the Charlotte Bobcats. "They asked me to do something else, so I said yes."

Cleveland's All-Star forward has declined to participate in the dunk contest in all three of his seasons. He did, however, play on the sophomore team in last year's Rookie Challenge and was a starter for the East in the All-Star Game.

He skipped the dunk contest his rookie year, partially because he was upset at not being picked as a reserve for the Eastern Conference's All-Star team.

Meanwhile, James was named the Eastern Conference's player of the week on Monday after leading Cleveland to a 4-0 record since Jan. 24. He averaged 33.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 2.3 steals in the four victories.

It's the second time this season and fifth time in his career that James has won the conference's weekly honor. He was voted the East's top player in November.

The Cavaliers have won five straight since losing five in a row on a West Coast road trip. They entered Monday's game at Charlotte in second place in the Central Division.

It's not first and second year players only...LeBron was invited but turned it down. He then accepted the skills challenge...I have NO idea why. For what it's worth, I liked the old 8-player format better. But in the old 2000 days they had Vince, T-Mac, Stackhouse, Francis, players of that quality dunking.

Either way, I still think he at least deserves to be in the Contest. I was really pulling for the Pacers to get Warrick until I saw that Granger was still available in the draft. The guy doesn't get enough PT in Memphis IMO.

01-31-2006, 05:51 PM
From what I've seen, he came out of college WAY too early.

Warrick is a physically weak PF with no post moves, and he cant take advantage of his quickness because he's afraid of getting fouled, and he's a %60 foul shooter.

To make things worse, he can't hold on to the ball.

He's got a ton of work to do to become a legit NBA player. All he can do right now is dunk, and he's too weak to do it with a defender on him.

You don't have people guarding you in the dunk contest. You just need to have a good vertical and some creativity to win the dunk contest.

He only makes his shots if they are dunks. I've watched enough Hawks games to know by now. Give Warrick some time, Not everyone is blessed with the 50 inch verticle and ginormous hands of Josh Smith. Theres no doubt in my mind Smith will win the dunk contest again but Warrick should be entertaining nonetheless. Moreso then Chris Anderson.

Bet his vertical is more around 36", which is pretty normal by NBA standards.

There's a difference between being 6'8" with hangtime, and a vertical jump.
Kind of like a difference between a vertical jump, and a long jump.

I mean, Marvin Williams was labeled such a highflier coming into the draft, and Bogut was labeled as a unathletic white player, but they're verticals were seperated by an inch or two.

I've got a 33" vertical and can dunk easily with two hands, but you'll never see that translate into something spectaular due to me being a power jumper.

I agree he doesn't have much of a game right now. He got by in college by using his athletic ability, but if he can't improve his basketball ability soon, he'll be a bust.

Hoopsvibe has D-Wades vertical only at 36, which they call "average."

"Dwyane Wade
Although a popular choice, I’m not so sure Dwyane would cut it in the contest. Sure, he puts down some slick slams in the season, but that seems to me to be more due to his slashing mentality than dunking ability. Standing a shade shy of 6’4’’ in socks and with a 36’’ vertical (roughly average in contest terms), "

He's had a couple of follow-up dunks - haven't seen him just fly down the lane yet. Trying to remember the center he dunked on with a put-back - I'm thinking Battie but not positive.

He'll be fun - the midget dunker for this year. He'll have to be creative to win though. Josh has to be the favorite.

Is the dunk contest before or after the rookie-soph game?

Man, the dunk contest just doesn't do it for me.

I like dunks when they're in the heat of battle. I like dunks that are contested, and then you posterize your man and get the "And 1" call and the crowd goes wild. The stuff in the dunk contest just isn't real to me.

I like power when it comes to dunking, which is why I like Warrick. But Warrick is good because he can powerfully dunk it ON SOMEONE during a game. When it comes to the contest, they want creativity, and I just don't know if he has the agility to pull off the fancy stuff.

It's getting pretty bad now. Freddie tried the dunk where the dude throws it to him from the stands (yet, the actual dunk would have been pretty normal). Amare got Nash to do all the work last year (and once again, the actual dunk was just normal).

For the dunk contest, they should pick the top dunks of the first half of the season, where they took place during games...and then vote for the best one. Oh man, I can think of a few right now. That Ariza dunk on Ben Wallace for example, is the kind of dunking I like to see.

The dunk Contest was great a couple of years ago when they brought it back. I think they had T-mac, Francis, Kobe, Stackhouse and Carter participating.. Ever since then it's gone down hill again. The slam dunk contest could probably use a little vacation for a couple of years and bring it back when the great dunkers have enough interest in doing it again.

Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Steve Francis, Jerry Stackhouse, Larry Hughes and Baron Davis.

That was the last year it was good. Since then it has been downhill. They have tried to make it too fancy. But I agree with rcarey that the heat of the moment dunks are much better and I also agree that the Ariza on Wallace dunk was ridic.

To make it real interesting they should do a Centers Dunk Competition: Shaq, Bradley, Dalembert, Ben Wallace, B Miller and Yao

The dunk Contest was great a couple of years ago when they brought it back. I think they had T-mac, Francis, Kobe, Stackhouse and Carter participating.. Ever since then it's gone down hill again. The slam dunk contest could probably use a little vacation for a couple of years and bring it back when the great dunkers have enough interest in doing it again.


I think this is a good idea, maybe do it every three years or so, it would make it a much creative, and refreshing. It would also motivate players as well I think.
