Those of you who took in the 2012 NBA Dunk Contest on Saturday were treated to a couple of decent dunks despite the lack of big names. Jeremy Evans, who entered the competition as a injury replacement, won after stealing the show by dunking two balls at once and leaping over teammate Gordon Hayward. He then jumped over comedian Kevin Hart in the finals for a mailman dunk.
With the exception of Evans, the Dunk Contest was once again more about the props and less about the dunks. The problem is nobody wants to participate. Kevin Durant tweeted over the weekend that it’s time for some of the sport’s big names like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Derrick Rose to take part, and that’s an opinion that is shared by plenty of people. Overall there was very little buzz surrounding the event, which seems to have become an annual theme.
