You knows whats funny? The thing people complain about the most is the problem.
They want change in the dunk contest or they want it scrapped alltogether. The problem isn't the format, it's the names in the contest.
If there were bigger names every year it wouldn't have lost luster over the years you know? What made the 80's special were the MJ vs. Nique battles and B4 that it was Dr.J owning, then it went down until Kobe and Vince Carter came along. After Vince there hasn't been a really BIG or MARQUEE name in the contest. This is the 1st year it's a BIG NAME player in it in a long while. If LeBron were in it tonight with Blake and Demar, this dunk contest would have more hype than "THE DECISION"
