I wonder if White can still do that between the legs dunk from the free throw line? If so, just rack up a perfect score for that one. I sure hope he nails it. Gerald Green and White have already battled overseas with some crazy dunks.

If White is healthy, he wins easily. If not, Green takes it. If Green isn't healthy also, then Ross or Bledsoe takes it.

How can Jeremy Lin put up numbers like he did during Linsanity if he's not being used the same way that he was being used during Linsanity?

For those who claim that Jeremy Lin is not a superstar: in the games where Lin was the primary decision-maker on his team, he has averaged 23 points and 8 assists per game, and his teams have gone 14-5.

2013-2014 Predictions (made during the preseason)
1. James Harden will finish at least #3 in the MVP voting.
2. Rockets will win at least 60 games.

He can't get up nearly as high as some of those other guys though, his max vert is 'only' 35" (heh). For comparison, Gerald Green can do 39.5" and Ross 37.5".

Just don't know if Faried can hang long enough to pull off the same stuff as other guys can. He's got a reputation as a freak athlete, but he's more like a very good athlete who has one of the highest motors in the game... that's why he rebounds so well.

Maybe if he shaves off those dreads to get a little more aerodynamic

It's too bad they've still got completely idiotic rules for the whole thing and have already ruined the possibility of a White/Green final.

Per Yahoo:

Quote:
The three competitors from each conference will dunk in a two-round competition, with all three Eastern Conference dunkers completing their first dunk (scored on a scale from 6 to 10 by a panel of five judges for a minimum score of 30 and a maximum score of 50), then all three Western Conference dunkers doing the same. The lowest-scoring East dunker from Round 1 will kick off Round 2, followed by the middle finisher, followed by the top scorer; the same re-ordering will happen for the West.

All six dunks completed by each conference will be added together, and whichever conference has the highest total after two rounds will be awarded 50 points in the overall competition. If an individual player gets a 50 for a dunk in the first two rounds, his conference get 10 bonus points. (If the East and West dunkers finish with the same combined score, each conference will get 25 points.)

After the "Team Round," the highest scoring East competitor and the highest scoring West competitor will compete head-to-head to determine the champion. If there's an intra-conference tie, the tied players will have a one-dunk “dunk-off” to see who moves on.

We wind up with one East dunker and one West dunker. Whichever one had a lower total score through the first two dunks will go first, and the players will alternate, each completing two more dunks. Fan voting will open at the beginning of the Championship Round; the player with the highest percentage of combined votes from all platforms will be crowned champion, earning 55 points for his conference. (If each dunker receives 50 percent of the votes, we bring back the one-dunk “dunk-off” to nail down a winner.)

Someone tweet Green or White about using Yao Ming in one of their dunks?? Someone is bound to jump over him for the dunk!
