Why not change the all star dunk contest to a HORSE contest.

You have 4 guys. The first guy dunks, if he misses his own dunk he gets a letter. If he makes it everyone else has to make it or they get a letter. Maybe give them two chances to make it since the original guy had time to plan it out. then it goes to the next guy.

No gimmicks, no celebrities, no cars to jump over but I think it would be much more entertaining to watch. Anyone who is fiends with David Stern feel free to pass this along to him.

If the other three guys repeat his dunk on their first try, the original dunker should get a letter. When we played, this is what we did to keep people from putting up an easy dunk*.

The only reason I don't think the NBA would ever go for this is that it would take a long time to finish the contest. Maybe PIG instead of HORSE.






*and when I say dunk, I mean layup. We were all 5'6" white dudes after all...

Watching them do around 50 normal dunks would get old fast!

I'm sure it would end up being S-P-R-I-T-E or something like that. The NBA wouldn't miss out on easy money like that! :)

I think they just need to change the format ofthe dunk contest.
3 rounds you have one min to do as many dunks as you can. Have the judges
judge on style, difficulty, and number of dunks made in a row. No props no helpers just a player with 60 seconds and a ball.

Not bad. This turns it into something like a half pipe run at the X-Games. I could get behind that.

I'm in red. Chris in the gray Pacers hoodie, and Jeremiah in the white hat. Rims are 8-feet, and this is just one of the many videos of short-goal dunking that I've recorded, mixed, uploaded, etc.

I really wanted to wait longer before I posted my short-rim dunks on PD, but this seemed like an appropriate reply to the comment above.

The NBA should contact Budweiser and have a Superbowl style Clydesdale dunk contest series of commercials that could be played instead of the current contest.
