Improving The NBA Slam Dunk and 3-Point Contests With The Ideal Fields For Each

Face it: the Slam Dunk and 3-Point Contests are not what they could be and are by no means what they used to be.

In fact, Yahoo! writer Adrian Wojarnowski bemused earlier on twitter, “If the NBA held this event in your driveway, would you open drapes to watch?”

The NBA All-Star Weekend is a far cry from what it used to be, when the best players in the league would come to show off their world class skill and athleticism.

Take the 3-point shootout in 1988. Larry Bird was in the finals, looking to win his third straight contest, which would keep him as the only winner in the history of the contest. He was shooting against Seattle’s Dale Ellis, one of the best shooters in the game in the late 1980s, and the whole competition came down to the final “money” ball. Bird released it, knew it was going in from the moment it left his fingers, and pointed to the sky as he walked away from the final rack like a bad ass.

Here’s the video proof.

—–

There might be no Larry Bird around anymore, but how come the 3-Point and Slam Dunk Contests can’t attract the best talent in the game today?

Ideal Slam Dunk Contest Field

Let’s start with the Slam Dunk Contest.

First we have Jeremy Evans, whom I’ve never heard of. Then we have Chase Budinger, who I remember from college and I think plays for the Rockets? Another Arizona Wildcat, Derrick Williams, will be getting his shot as a rookie, and last but not least, up-and-comer Paul George will be in the contest as well.

That field is awful.

In an ideal world, where fans could vote who they would want to see make the contest, I would bet that none of those four candidates would crack the top 20. Here are the four that I’d like to see in the contest.

Russell Westbrook

Freakish athlete, and could represent the “little guy” in the contest.  So what if he’s 6-foot-3. I’m taller than him and I can’t dunk like that. Or dunk at all.

Dwight Howard

He’s been in the contest three times, winning once. Since he’s 7-feet tall, he could push the limits and bring a different type of dunk to the contest.

Blake Griffin

He’s 1-for-1 in his dunk contest career. He has a contest-caliber throwdown in just about every game. He needs to be in this contest.

LeBron James

He’s never been in the dunk contest, which is a shame.

Not only is he the best player in the league, he could prove he’s the most creative in the dunk contest. There’s no reason that in close to 10 seasons in the league, LeBron has not been in a dunk contest yet.

Who wouldn’t watch this? It would bring together four of the best athletes in the world, all of whom are All-Star caliber players, unlike the relative schmucks in the contest now.

Ideal 3-Point Shootout Field

The 3-point contest has a few more “names” this year but could still be doing so much better.

The 2012 contest has Ryan Anderson, a power forward from Orlando, and Kevin Love, a power forward from Minnesota, to go along with four guards in Mario Chalmers, Joe Johnson, James Jones, and Anthony Morrow. A decent field, but not nearly as good as it could be.

In my opinion, the best possible field for the 3-Point Shootout would be a combination of veteran, knock-down shooters, up and coming gunners, and Brian Scalabrine, the latter mostly for comedic effect.

Ray Allen

The best 3-point shooter of all time. He’s been in the contest six times but has only won it once. That came over 10 years ago, in 2000-01, and Jesus Shuttlesworth can knock them down now just as well as he did back then.

Mike Miller

He has one job, which is to hit 3-pointers. Seems like he should do well in this contest.

JJ Redick

Redick has one of the best pure strokes of all time, but has yet to get his chance on the 3-point contest. He is top 15 in the league in both 3-pointers made (59, through 2/23)  and in percentage (44.7%).

Stephen Curry

With such a quick release, Curry seems like a natural for the 3-point contest. He’s a bit banged up and has missed nine games (roughly one-third of the Warriors’ games) this season, and yet is still among the league leaders. Making 45% of his shots from distance speaks for himself.

Steve Novak

I remember hearing about Novak in high school and watching him in college at Marquette. He’s 6-10, but all he does is shoot threes. He’s benefited from Linsanity, stretching the court and allowing the pick-and-roll to happen. He is fifth in the league in percentage, and has taken four times as many threes as he has twos.

Matt Bonner

The Red Rocket himself, Bonner led the league in 3-point percentage last season, which I think should get you an automatic invite into the 3-point shootout.

Who wouldn't want to see the silky smooth stroke of the Red Rocket in the 3-point contest?

Plus, his inevitable battle with Scalabrine in the finals would be captivating television.

Ryan Anderson

He’s hit 17 more 3-pointers than anyone else in the league, and is shooting at a 43% clip. He’s in the contest this season and is my favorite to win it.

Brian Scalabrine

Who doesn’t love this guy? He’d be the fan favorite.

He may not have hit a single 3-point shot this season, or last season for that matter, but he did hit 16 in 2009-10. And we all know he’s not getting a spot in the dunk contest.

Brian Scalabrine. Light it up.

  57. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  61. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  62. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  63. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  66. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  68. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Full Resume on Power LossThe DVD-Video player remembers where you stop watching last time when it is powered off directly or when the power supply discontinued. If you did not switch to play another disc, your player will resume play where you have stopped the movie last time just by reloading the disc. Making your life a lot easier! Easy to attach to the back of the car seats with straps provided. Our vehicle had a 12v hookup in the back, otherwise the power has to stretch back from the front of the vehicle and may not reach (did not in our motorhome). Consider buying a second power cord for home use as you need power to both unit and it only comes with AC unit. Only one unit plays the actual DVD/Blu Ray and the other only watches. We had the kids take turns running the unit and picking the movie. Ease of use is excellent if you read the directions first.
