2006 NBA dunk comp

  1. Did you watch it? I just finished watching it. All the commentators (particularly Magic) keep saying that Iguodala deserved to win, but I don't think he did. He had one good dunk - where he jumped from behind the backboard - but the rest of his dunks weren't as exciting as Nate Robinson's IMO. Watching that little guy jump was amazing! The only letdown in his performance was the fact the 2 of his dunks took nearly 16 attempts. What do you think?

    Yay for Nate. I got to watch him play in college for the UW. He also played for the football team. If he gets a shot in New York, he is going to be a great player.

    the tv in my apartment doesn't get tnt. :(

    i remember making a thread about the 2005 dunk competition, and it plummeted faster than a lead-plated titanic.

  5. We don't get anything NBA over here is Aus, but thanks to the wonders of the internet I can watch all the action.

    Really? You think he was the clear winner? A lot of people were complaining that one of the judges held up a 10 on Iggy's last dunk, then changed it a second later to a 9. As a result it went into a dunk off.

    i think if nate had made that "btwn the legs, off the backboard" dunk in far few less tries (and not 10 tries :rolleyes: ), he still woulda been dunk king.

    but yea, i think iggy did have more originality. while i loved the "anniversary'ness" of Nate hurdling Spud (20 yrs. ago, he won it?), its nothing new from the "And1 / City Hoops" stuff.
