    Obi Toppin actually had some really good and creative dunks. It’s just that he didn’t slam them hard enough. The impact of the dunks were too soft so the crowd couldn’t appreciate them

    Got to feel bad for Obi Toppin. His dunks werent bad at all but got no reaction due to the lack of star power in this years contest and how much everyone else was missing so much... He needs to comeback next year and hope that a star does it aswell so he's not the only one

    My ideas to fix all star weekend (1 for each event or possible adds)
    1. get rid of the moneyball rack in the 3pt contest... yes its cool to see shooters score a bunch of points but it kills the chance of a comeback if someone misses there moneyballs and someone makes all theres. leave the 5th ball money balls but the rack is to much and getting rid of it in my option makes the scores closer.
    2. stop with the guard vs guard and bigs vs big in the skills contest... honestly this isnt that big of a deal but i just feel like anyone vs anyone would make it more interesting and wouldnt limit the amount of guards or bigs that can participate.
    3. The dunk contest needs a lot of work right now, from the weak contenders to the overuse of props. What the league needs to do is either add charity money to it and makes it to where the charity that the winner selects gets a idk maybe 500k donation or someone like that, it worked out for the all star game maybe it will increase the amount of star power the dunk contest gets...
    4. If they dont plan on changing anything to the dunk contest what they need to do to save all star weekend is give the fans what they want... a 1v1 tournament, realistically i cant see this being that crazy after the 3rd year since most of the stars will have already competed if any do, but still it would help take a lot of the pressure off the dunk contest as the main attraction... also give it some kind of prize pool aswell to get people to compete more that once if at all...
    5. something that would be very easy to add that the fans might not care for but the players might is make logos for the the events and let the winner were it on there jersey for the year as bragging rights... some examples of this would be the C for captain on the NFL jerseys or the nba trophy on the defending champs jerseys, MAYBE even give them a title belt that they can have until the very next event and if they want to keep it they have to defend it, because lets be honest title belts are some of the coolest things ever and who wouldnt want to be known as the dunk contest champion or 3pt contest champion

      I think another thing would be better than the celebrity game would be an old man's pick up. Get retired legends to lace up, obviously they wouldn't be as action packed, and make former players the refs as well. I would think seeing AI ref a pick up with Shaq, Barkley, and maybe idk tim Duncan would be funny.

    I missed this live, but watching just the highlights, this dunk contest wasn't that bad. The problem is that we have been spoiled by so many great dunks in the past that even spectacular dunks aren't that exciting to see anymore. If these dunks were performed 30 years ago, they would bring down the house.

    I've yet to see anyone do a behind the back under the legs dunk. I feel like Obi could hit that dunk the way he did that behind the back in the first round. He definitely had the hang time to get a quick under the legs, obviously he wouldn't be able to dunk over a person while doing it.

    Obi Toppin has the athleticism and hops to be amazing, he just needs some creativity. It'll never be anyone really beyond their 4th-5th year in anymore, too much risk for a fan service show. Love to see an off the board mid air catch air jordan from free throw line. Or the coveted 360 free throw line jam.

    I miss the early 2000s. It seemed like dunkers back then got up easier and had more hang time. Allowing for them to finish their dunks. And I think after Zach and Aaron Gordon we've pretty much seen all that is humanly capable for a dunker, so all that is left is for someone to basically defy the laws of physics in order for us to be wowed. Or at least jump from 3 feet from behind the free throw line and do a 360 windmill while in the air . They'd have to get their chest rim level, on a few dunks possibly even flip in the air before dunking. Anything less is something we've already seen before.

      @VK I've been saying since before Blake Griffin began the jumping over props hype that they haven't had new dunks.
      (Come on world, it was the hood, not even as impressive as whoever dunked over Kevin Hart!)
      They need to get rid of the contest, or change it to x number contestants and the rounds are iconic past champion dunks. Draw one out and each guy does the same dunk, worst effort or a miss and you're out. Next round!

    I’ve never seen so many failed dunk attempts in a dunk contest before. It’s gotten to the point every year we see the same things over and over it haven’t been exciting since the one with Zack Lavine VS Aaron Gordon. This year should of had Ja Morant and Anthony Edwards in it along with Zion Williams if he was healthy but other then that it’s got pretty boring to the point they need to move on and come up with something else.

    I would like to make a proposal maybe y'all can expand on this.
    The dunk contest could be scraped for good or we can have it every 2 years or 3 years which would allow for breathing space of talent and dunking ideas to come about.
    Aside from that, what can be an added in the future would be a 1 on 1 contest. Here you can have 8 guys compete and basically like the knockout flows from quaters to semi and final, these 8 guys would be paired up and each pair will have have a one on one match up on one side of thw court . The first one to reach say ten points wins and advances to the next round. Why 10 point cause i think its short enough and it really doesnt fatigue them. Alternatively instead of that, a set time can be given, say 2 or 4 minutes and by the end whoever scores the highest wins. A 1 on 1 contest can be exciting as one can see some drama, skill on display, egos and dominance tussles, dunks and maybe even ankle breaks. Its just a thought and maybe the people in the comment section and maybe the NBA themselves can ponder on this. ✌

      97 is easily the most trash contest of all time. The format sucked, the judging sucked and the dunks sucked. It was so ass backward that Darvin Ham had the most powerful dunks in the first round, had the single most creative dunk and was the only contestant that stuck all of his dunks. Yet the judges gave him one of the lowest scores.

      @Arsenio Buck That is true. Ticket costs have become so high that your regular working class folk can't afford them. The working class knew how to make noise, the rich folk just treat the game as a day out and you see a lot of females just staring at their phones. But I think the crowd would have been more hyped if big name players weren't scared of entering the dunk contest. But you're right, crowds today do not bring the same energy crowds in the 80s and 90s did

    I think they need to focus a little less on the flashy trick and more on a powerful finish. It would also be helpful if for the dunk contest the NBA made the rims more bouncy like they used to be

      @PG 13PACERNATION Toppin dunks are extremely difficult. Among the most difficult ever. The problem is that it has no style, unlike lavine for example. Otherwise the green dunk (inverted 360 between the legs) deserved better. He had to go to the final.

      I think the ambience is a key factor in the success of a dunk contest. Back in 2016, there was so much energy in that arena, but partially because All-Star Weekend was being held in Toronto. If you think back, that was Drake’s breakout year. But the league also looked a lot different so we were able to enjoy things more. Pre-Covid, Pre-Trump, Kobe was still alive. Believe it or not I believe that extraneous circumstances do play a part in our ability to enjoy things. Make no mistake, I do feel like the athleticism and creativity was missing from this year’s Dunk Contest. Zach Lavine and Aaron Gordon didn’t really need props and they also dunked with a certain finesse that we weren’t seeing with these contestants.

    the dunk contest needs to have some kind of "golden buzzer", in case a dunk is exceptionally above 50, and that buzzer should only be used once per round.

      @Timothy Brown true, but as far as a collective inspirational event. Aaron v Lavine was IMO, the second-best event ever for a dunk contest. But it stops there.
      MJvNique, they gave it to you their entire career! big difference!
      That's the issue with today and for a long time actually. STAR PLAYERS need to go into the contest. Giannis vs LeBron or something or that kid from Minnesota #1 with those John Carter Mars hops vs. Lamelo Ball [If he had hops] ...you can build on that much better. Because the hype will carry outside of the dunk contest.
      The reason why people were so happy about Aaron v Lavine, people were craving for that and they got t by surprise! which was awesome!
