Three best dunks of All-Star Dunk Contest

Feb 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

This isn’t a dunk contest that is going to go down in history with the greats. Well, unless you’re a Raptors fan. It was up and down, plenty of misfires and missed dunks no doubt.

But there were some jaw dropping moments, too. Terrence Ross won because he had a few of them. Then there was the most unique dunk of the night with Jeremy Evans dunking over a painting he did himself of himself.

But these were our three favorites.

3. Kenneth Faried goes off the backboard and between the legs. Faried is a power dunker. I like power dunkers. I had high hopes for him and he delivered with this one.

2. Gerald Green off the side of the backboard reverse. This was the very first dunk of the contest and when it was over I was thinking, “damn, this could be a good night.” Didn’t fully work out that way, but Green had a huge one here.

1. Terrence Ross off the side of the backboard, 360 throwdown while wearing the Vince Carter throwback. Your winner, ladies and gentlemen.

    Sorry, but these dunk contests are old now. Boring. Stale. They do the same kind of stuff over and over and it’s not exciting. I think it’s time to think up some other contests and get a little more creative.
    Even the “style” of the dunks just have names of previous dunkers that did it before.

    How bad is the Slam Dunk Contest? Pro Bowl > Dunk Contest

    Eric Bledsoe’s second round dunk was real nice too.
