Why doesnt the NBA take LeBron, Wade, Griffin, Kobe, and all these other super stars and throw them into the Slam Dunk competition?

The dunk contest use to be huge. All the stars would be in it, every year. The best of the best. The NBA saw this, and rolled with it. But then they thought it might be better to get other people and other teams popular.. the thing was, as much as you could say it was the talent of the last few years that was lacking in dunks, there's only so many ways to dunk a ball, and almost all of the best ways have been done. It's more or less all about props now. Just kind of a double fail. NBA trying to get people besides stars in + loss of creativity/ability to be creative in general = stars don't really want to be apart of a sinking ship event. It's a huge joke now. I was more entertained by the last NHL all star festivities.. and that says a lot. Because the NHL stuff has always been pretty bland and boring.

I am a firm beleiver the NHL and NBA should take the MLB's approach. Make it mean something. Home advantage goes to the winning side in the finals. I think that's what the MLB did, and that's what I think it should be anyway. Makes everyone try, because home advantage is important in every sport. Not a boring ass TV event that you only really watch these days if nothing else is on.

Surprised at LA's 3 straight wins. Kobe was great tonight. It'll make for a good story if they sneak into the playoffs.

How? They were favorites to win the title before the season started? It's a better story if they don't get in.

Timberwolves up for sale.
Perhaps the Aquilini bros should consider buying that team?
It would be nice to have Rubio and Love playing for our city.
Stern has declared that he would love for the NBA to be back here.
l know the Grizzlies saga left a really bad taste in our mouth,
but Vancouver is a good sports city and basketball is ever growing in Canada,
especially if Wiggins finally enters the league.
Plus, the T'Wolves is significantly better than the Raptors. B)

Who knew Dwight could hit free throws. I guess with 39 attempts you're bound too.

Wow incredible come back for the Heat. They were down by 27! Keepin the streak alive at 24 straight wins. So impressive. Also I think Denver is the best team in the West.

Thank GOD Sportsnet is showing the Raptors/Wizards game rather than the Heat/Spurs game!! I totally forgot how much more important Rpators games are than actual competitive games.

Time for the HEAT to start the journey defending their championship, looking forward to witnessing LeBron grow his legacy in the only season that really matters!

Love Kobe's coaching on Twitter during the LA game! People are really underestimating the Spurs.

Saw an interesting stat today. During the Duncan/ Kobe era on the Spurs/Lakers, all 6 times they have met have resulted in the winner ending up in the finals. I don't know if this year counts because Kobe's injured but it would be crazy the 2 teams could keep the streak alive.

The panel was laughing at Magic yesterday fro suggesting that the Lakers are even close to being even with the Spurs

Who is underestimating them? Nobody thinks the Lakers will get through the first round
