Let’s start out with 6 words everyone can agree on: The new Dunk Contest format sucks.
It does!, I for one absolutely hate it, it takes all the fun out of it because there is no 1 official winner! No championship round or anything like that, PLEASE GO BACK TO THE OLD FORMAT! But anyway here we go!
Basically it’s east versus west not every man for himself.
East- Paul George, Terrance Ross, John Wall
West- Harrison Barnes, Ben McLemore, Damian Lillard
FREESTYLE ROUND (90 seconds per conference)
GOOD DUNKS (EAST)
Let’s start with John Wall throwing the alley-oop pass to Paul George who does a sick windmill! Then the East go double-oop, Ross throws it off the glass who throws it off the shot clock to George who goes up and does a hard one handed tomahawk slam!
GOOD DUNKS (WEST)
Let’s start with Ben McLemore doing a little self-oop and throwing down the tomahawk jam! Then arguably the best dunk of the Freestyle round went to Damian Lillard who throws a self-oop then goes between the legs and finishes with the jam! Then McLemore does a self oop but this time finishes with a windmill!
THE EAST WON THE FREESTYLE ROUND.
Note: The freestyle round only matters in the sense that you can pick which order you dunk in in the battle round
BATTLE ROUND (3 1v1 competitions)
Lillard vs Ross
Ross won this round easily when he took the ball from Drake (rapper) and went between the legs! East 1 West 0
Barnes vs George
After Barnes did what was probably the worst dunk of the night George did possibly the best he went from the corner and did a 360 between-the-legs JAM! East 2 West 0
McLemore vs Wall
Let’s start with McLemore’s slam. He had Shaq sit down in a throne then McLemore jumped over the throne and stuffed the one-handed jam! Can Wall top that to give the East the win or do we go to OT (you need 3 to win) Wall has the Wizards mascot (G-Man) hold the ball over his head, Wall jumps over G-Man takes the ball and does a reverse slam, remember all over the mascot! The judges converse and come out and give Wall the win! The East sweep it! East 3, West 0
Dunker of the Night: John Wall
