the last dunk is amazing. it's funny to look back at the progenitors, it's only 12 years ago that he did that, 15 years since vince and obviously longer since jordan/wilkins and before that dr. j, but now none of the best/most creative dunkers in the world play in the NBA, except maybe gerald green. there are some guys who can really fly (looking at you, zack levine), but pretty much any of the top youtube stars would annihilate the NBA dunk contest.* you can tell from richardson's narration, he and arenas were making it up on the spot. there are dudes - famous dudes, whose names are known by hundreds of thousands of people - who spend all day thinking about and practicing dunks.

there's a point in there somewhere, i swear to god. i guess just that the internet changed everything.

*except that no one gets pumped about a ringer. part of the fun of the NBA contest for a long time was that the guys were already superstars and you got to see them show off in a way they couldn't otherwise. the youtube dunkers will never be that. and non-superstar NBA players are boring. the only NBA dunk contest dunks that come immediately to mind from the last ten years are green with the cupcake candle and javale with two rims.

I wouldn't go so far as to say non superstars are boring...I think Lavine, Wiggins (he is not a star...yet), Aaron Gordon, Gerald Henderson could all put on a good show.  Green is just ridiculous. Its just the average fan doesn't know anything about them, which is sad. They all want Blake Griffin and Lebron in the contest but im sorry...they suck as contest dunkers. Period.  I think if the NBA actually put in some legit high flyers it would come back after a few years because the fans wpuld get excited by the DUNKS not the NAMES. But...eh. :(
Insert motivational quote here...

yes and no. lebron could be an epic contest dunker if he put his mind to it. he can touch 12' and he's strong as shit, there's no doubt in my mind he could do something ridiculous like a two-basketball reverse elbow hang if he put some effort into practicing it. but he won't, and that's fine: it wouldn't help him be a better basketball player. and i guess that's my point. dunking is a specialty now for some leapers with elite talent and athleticism, and guys who are basketball specialists can't go toe to toe anymore because they spend their time doing something that makes them millions of dollars instead.

none of vince's dunks are as great as the kilganon double reverse elbow hang. none. and he's 3-4 inches taller than kilganon is.

Imagine if Vince sucked at basketball and became an "online dunker". I wonder what he would've done.
