1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    This sounds awful. This event has lost a lot of its' entertainment value since the 80's/90's.

    Make the fans vote for who should be in it. So we can have players like Blake Griffin, Lebron James, etc etc.

    "The league announced Thursday that there no longer will be judges in the event, which also will be reduced to one round. Each contestant will execute three dunks. Fans will determine the champion by voting on NBA.com, Twitter or through text messaging."

    wtf?

    they might as well bring back the dunk wheel and make this officially the worst dunk contest ever.

    True, but at least this might shorten it.

    The best thing would be to just get rid of it.

    The next best thing would be to make it as short as possible.

    I like it that there are no more rounds, I want to see what everyone brought to the game and some are saving their best stuff for the end, but I wish that the judges still gets to vote. With Lin helping out Shumpert, he'd probably be a sure win unless someone else just blows someones mind.

    That Mark Eaton gif is awesome. He's probably the best ever "really tall white guy" center (although you could argue Sabonis fit that mold too)

    It turns out that Mark Eaton is a super interesting guy too with a prolific after NBA career.

    Geez, Heat planning to get Kaman. Should pretty much guarantee them the chip and considering Lebron is Sterns poster child, it'll likely happen.
