    Was 1 for 4 before canning a pair to maintain Cavs lead. Nice dunk to seal the game from Smith's heave. Usual energetic play. Tapped the ball out to Clarkson who hit the trey. Both adjusting well.

    ...much buzz about the 2 max slots so on, so forth and the pitches will be there. Not as confident but we'll see.

    I thought Larry Jr. was spot on with his response saying he wants people to remember his dad and he wants to be his own person which is why he didn't want to take his dad's number.

    Underwhelmed by Nance's dunks in the contest. He's more of an in game dunker.

    I thought Nance was awesome after his first dunk, he was so smooth. That double tap had me out of my seat, I have never seen that, that was ridiculous. I thought Mitchell’s last dunk was just ok, thought it deserved 9’s all around. His first dunk was great though. Smith Jr was good too, if he’d made his first attempt on his first dunk that’s a 50. Oladipo sucked because of the misses, but had he thrown down his 2nd dunk 1st try, also a 50. Even the one he made was crazy in slow motion. Overall it was a very fun dunk contest, saw some stuff I haven’t seen, that’s all I can ask.

    Not really the same IMO, though Dwight’s was cool no question. Dwight threw himself a bouncing lob, which gave him more time to wind up and jump. Larry threw it off the backboard and had less time to wind up his jump, had to hang there while he bounded it off 2 handed, it was more difficult to me. One of the coolest dunks I can remember



    This is still cool too even if not an amazing dunk

    So, Donovan Mitchell imitating Vince Carter got a 50, while Junior imitating Senior did not? IMO, based on Larry's score on his first dunk in the first round, Mitchell could not have deserved more than a 44 on his last winning dunk, I mean saw that dunk before, right?
    :No2:

    P.S. DJ Khaled sucks. I was hoping players-only judged the competition.
