    Sorry if posted already. I thought this article was hilariously turrible, and he's hating on Bud who never needed to take 5 tries to do one dunk.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-b...454365.html;_ylt=AnBj7Y9Ve3qraid.zW2q7KC8vLYF

    Posting the summarized rankings here.

    I'm pretty sure this guy is trolling just to get hits. There's no way the runner up has the 3 worst dunks, and the worst dunk of all time is #5.

    Nr. 5 was wack but I also had Bud with the worst dunks. Basic windmill, dunking over a 5ft something dude and a basic reverse. That's uncreative and terrible, no difficulty.

    Only thing wrong with his list is having Jeremy Evans 1st dunk 5th. That should have been last.

    I was impressed with chase. Blindfold reverse and p diddy doing a well timed lob. Besides that I think the double dunk was the only impressive. Ps. I'm not a homer

    Evans did a bounce pass reverse that almost went in the basket itself. That is the WORST dunk. Evans also dunked over a shorter person. Diddy is 5' 10", Kevin Hart is 5' 2" and Chase also caught an alley-oop from Diddy whereas Evans handled the ball the whole time.

    Evans already has 2 worse dunks than Chase. Cheryl Miller also laughed at him. He didn't even get respect from the least respected NBA-affiliated reporter.

    Derrick Williams did an off the backboard dunk. That is worse than any dunk Chase did.

    Still doesn't change the fact that Bud's dunks were trash. Doesn't matter what one was the worst. The rating is okay if you change #5 to last and Williams backboard alley to 2nd last.

    #3 is too high, he used Hibbert to propel himself over him. I dobut he would have cleared Diddy with that jump.

    This would be my honest rankings of the dunks.

    1. Evans jumps over Hayward and throws down two balls on the alley-oop.
    2. Ricky Rubio passes off the side of the backboard, Derrick Williams grabs it and does a 360.
    3. Paul George turns off the lights, does a glow-in-the-dark 360 windmill.
    4. Paul George jumps over the 7-2 Roy Hibbert.
    5. Chase Budinger kind of dresses like Woody Harrelson in "White Men Can't Jump," jumps over Diddy for some reason.
    6. Chase Budinger "honors" Cedric Ceballos while dunking with a thin blindfold.
    7. Paul George throws up a Larry Bird sticker, dunks several minutes later.
    8. Derrick Williams enters on a motorcycle, jumps over it.
    9. Chase Budinger does Derrick Williams's motorcycle dunk, just without the motorcycle.
    10. Jeremy Evans gets a visit from mailman Kevin Hart, wears a Karl Malone jersey, jumps over the very short Kevin Hart, does the Mailman dunk.
    11. Jeremy Evans straps on a camera, throws it to himself off the bounce for a reverse.
    12. Derrick Williams tries to go off the backboard and through the legs nine times, ends up doing something way less impressive.

    In all honesty, Paul George probably should have won. Evans had no reason holding that trophy.

    This was the most unremarkable dunk contest ever. The only reason it's not forgettable was because of how turrible it was. The crowd was never into it. TNT's commentary should've been on the PA system so at least the crowd could have been entertained.

    This dunk contest was an embarassment. It's time to just put it to rest.

    I would put Derrick Williams' 360 dunk over the two ball dunk, and Evans' camera dunk was by far the worst one.

    The author is a piece of racist ****. I wouldn't be surprised if he advocates black power. How the f*** did chase's all three dunks ranked worse than Derrick William's 9 fail attempts? WTF?

    Agreed. Evans completely botched that bounce but for whatever reason decided to finish it
