After Legendary Poster posed the idea for a pick up game with .net users, I got to thinking if there was a legitamte way to have a basketball related contest of some sort. Then i remembered a few years ago a dunk group on youtube had a low ring dunk contest. Basically useres submitted videos and they judged it.
I thought we could do something similair here. Anyone who wants can go out and do a minute or two's worth of dunks, film it and make video out of it. Upload it to a thread and we can judge based on the 'likes'.
Furthermore we could have categories to do with rim height, so everyone can have a go. I figure seeing as its summer in America ( winter where i am but still) that it wouldn't hurt to take advantage of it.
Feedback and ideas welcome
There should be height limits for the different sized rim levels. Count me in for 8 foot rims. Lol. I like the idea, let's see of we can get some people to do it
Because I don't enter Dunk Contest...Lol...
Nice one man. Yeah if we start at 8 then 9 then 10 i think we cover all bases.
Maybe we start it out at 4 feet for him...
I will own the 8 foot rim contest. Lol. I need some competitors or I'm crowning myself now. Haha
You don't want to look like The Miami Heat after the Lose to Dallas in the Finals...
Not 5, not 6, not 7. All 10's!!!! Lol
I'd do an 8 foot dunk contest, but my creativity only goes 1 deep...
I;m banned for what happened the last time I did a dunk contest.
Was that Kobe's Wife? ^^^
That's actually European Baller's wife... he can't handle all that so he comes on here to release his frustration and call us idiots for not having Nik Papapapapaloupus on the draft board
Oh... This idea can only end well...
Trick shots could be fair game too... for those too dignified to be seen dunking on an 8 ft rim...
I'm down for the 10 foot contest if there's anyone who can get up there with me :P
i could.. but my repitoire would be the running 1hander and the standing straight 2hander..
If this ever starts I'm ready. I just did my 1 dunk.
I haven't dunked in 1.5 years, and when I could it wasn't anything impressive, I like the idea though
What about a 30 foot 3 point contest instead? Then I could participate
Well, I am 6 feet tall, but with my hops I probably couldn't dunk on a 6 and a half foot rim, lol. And yes, a Three Point Contest is also a great idea.
Sounds like we are making an Allstar weekend out of this haha
ha shooting starts competition to. I will form the minnesota team!
I can only hit the half court shot. I will participate in the skills challenge though!
So that guys can't post videos of their more athletic, more black friends dunking, they should include footage introc=sucing themselves by their somewhat ridiculous usernames (Ex: "Hi, my name is ProudGrandpa *dunk*)
So... Who can actually dunk on a ten foot hoop?
I did it once.
I can do a one hander on a good day, not enough to win a dunk contest, but I can still do it.
I'm like Blake Griffin on 8 1/2, though...Kendall Marshall on 10 haha
I can grab rim with one hand off one leg. It's impressive to me. Lol. I'm only 5'8" though. That's why I want to participate on 8 foot rims. I'm short enough. Haha
Yeah I'm really similar to you as I'm only 5'9.
Looks like we've got a few people interested.
In about a week or so I'll create a few different threads. An 8 foot dunk, 9 Foot dunk and 10 Foot. Also Trick shots if people are keen. Post your videos in the respective threads and we can go from there.
