Was That Really A Dunk Contest

Okay - seriously. Who is Nate Robinson? I know him more for being in a Joe Budden's line (And I'm a be like Nate Robinson and back up the point) than for anything he has done on the court. Don't get me wrong, Nate can dunk. He deserves props. But he is no Spud Webb. Spud Webb defeated a cat with the nickname "the Human Highlight Reel." Nate Robinson defeated? You know, I can't even remember.


I don't know when it happened, but today's elite players have no inclination to put their rep on the line in a dunking contest. Where is DWade, LeBron and Kobe? The great dunking contests ended around the time Vince Carter's arm was last seen hanging through a rim. So sad.
