Future NBA Dunk Contest Participants

I know everyone thinks that the dunk contest had been weak over the years. I like the rest of you are tired of seeing the same people in it. I made a list of players I think that are capable of giving us a good show that needs to be voted in for the contest. A lot of the players I have either seen in past dunk contests or seen what they are capable of doing on highlight reels. If you have a player in mind feel free to add to my list!!!!!

Terrence Williams$
Amir Johnson#
Bill Walker#
J.R. Giddens*
Brandon Jennings*#
Gerald Henderson*
Stanley Robinson*
John Wall*
Nick Young*$
Rodrique Beaubois*
Chase Budinger*
Michael Beasley
Jonny Flynn*
Jerryd Bayless*#
Russell Westbrook*#
* very good leaper
# underrated dunker
$ exceptional dunker

Bron will never enter because

Bron will never enter because he's not creative enough I think. He's a game dunker if any of you may notice, implus he wasn't that spectacular in the McDonald's contest he just elevated on his dunks. J.R.Giddens/Shannon brown got robbed!!!!

All are good dunkers from the PG and PF spots, but the only one that I see having even a slim chance is Brandon Jennings.

No Clue about McRoberts but

No Clue about McRoberts but he used to be an impressive dunker. I'm pretty sure Bill Walker has lost a lot of his explosiveness due to knee injuries and I'm not sure how good he would be now but back in the day he could jump.

Guillermo Diaz (not currently in the NBA) could be an impressive option as he had a 50 inch vert in high school.

Is Sam Young a creative dunker or game dunker because you have to be crative to be in the contest I think.

^ Terrico White does deserve mention. Good call

Sam Young is a pretty flashy dunker. He's creative, not a power dunker really.

He probably just wouldn't do

He probably just wouldn't do it. He's a future All-Star player, and I have doubts he'd be a Slam-Dunk participant next year. He's more of a Skills Challenge type to me.

I didn't mention Terrico White because I never seen him in a contest & I don't know what he's capable of.... all I know is he has a 40 inch vert & he's a "game dunker"

I think T Will will be good

I think T Will will be good in the dunk contest.

The last contest was HORRIBLE! Last year also showed that guys with high verticals and "in-game dunkers" don't always translate into good competition dunkers.

If Julian Wright is still in

If Julian Wright is still in the NBA, he'd be a good contestant. Hasn't amounted to much as a player, but the dude can dunk

i'd like to see what bayless can do..

i remember being impressed with him, bc he could take off on either foot, jumping either 2 foot takeoff.

russell westbrook is one like this as well, also eric bledsoe too.

Gilliermo Diaz was a freak

Gilliermo Diaz was a freak athlete at Miami, I thought he had a chance in the NBA. He actually played like a poor mans Steve Francis back then

Patrick Ewing, Jr.....if he

Patrick Ewing, Jr.....if he makes a team.

That 50" vertical measurement for Diaz is ridiculous. If he is 6'2" then that would mean he could just about get his nose to the rim. His max vert in 2006 was 42" according to an article at draftexpress.com

Why does everyone say

Why does everyone say Jennings is an exceptional athlete and great dunker? He caught one dunk last year, one. on a fast break and it wasn't anything special. He wouldn't do anything noteworthy in a dunk contest.

I think Derozan will get

I think Derozan will get another shot. I also think Weems will get a shot but that they wouldnt let 2 Raptors in the contest.Williams should get an oppurtunity.If Robinson is in again Im going to be very upset so Ill leave him out in my prediction.Javale Mcgee should definitely break out this year and deliver along side Wall.He will get a shot.Paul George should also break out along with Griffin and many other players but Ill take Griffin due to market value. Favors and Johnson could also get some play.

Derozan/Weems
Williams
Mcgee
Griffin
RESERVES
George
Favors
Johnson

best dunk contest, imo, would

best dunk contest, imo, would be 1 point guard, 1 big man, and two 6 foot 6 to 6 foot 8 guards or forwards.

pg- d rose, jennings, westbrook, wall

big man-javale mcgee, ryan hollins, serge ibaka

swingmen- t williams, weems, nick young, gerald henderson

that list and then there are the usuals like iguodala, the smiths(josh & jr), dwight, kryptonate, lebron, amare, etc.

it would also be cool if they let the d league winner dunk against the nba guys.
