2012 dunk contest

  1. Jeremy Evans agrees to terms to remain with Jazz

    Jeremy Evans

    He’s won the NBA Dunk Contest. He’s called the “human pogo stick.” He’s got plenty of NBA highlights but his game is not at the point he’s racking up a lot of NBA minutes. Now Jeremy Evans is going to get three more years to prove he can be a part of an NBA rotation.…

  2. Kevin Durant wants LeBron, Westbrook, star power in Dunk Contest

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against the Chicago Bulls during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    We can all admit it — Saturday night’s NBA Dunk Contest was sad. It was scripted and felt stiff. Jeremy Evans deserved the win for a legitimately impressive dunk, and a lot of people liked Paul George’s black-light dunk (more than I did). But overall, not good. Kevin Durant is thinking exactly what you are…

  3. Video: Jeremy Evans dunks two basketballs over Gordon Hayward, wins 2012 Slam Dunk Contest

    Jeremy Evans

    Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz is your 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk champion, and this dunk is likely the reason why. In a contest full of skits, props, and gimmicks, this one was relatively straightforward, but with an incredible degree of difficulty that made it one of the more pure and meaningful dunks of the…

  4. Chase Budinger dunks over Yao Ming (well, a cut out of him)

    Feb 22, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Clearly this is a staged video, with the Rockets’ Chandler Parsons “talking to the media” while Chase Budinger just happens to do a dunk over a cardboard cutout of Yao Ming in the background. Coincidentally. Still, pretty cool. And this is why I hold out some hope for this year’s All-Star Dunk Contest — Budinger…

  5. Paul George your new Dunk Contest favorite, here’s why

    Feb 22, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Paul George

    Iman Shumpert is out, Jeremy Evans is in — we’ve had All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest changes. So, if you are a degenerate gambler and want to bet on this, how will this change impact you? Well, from the fine folks at Bovada here are the new odds. Paul George (Pacers) 3/2 Jeremy Evans (Jazz) 11/4…

  6. It’s official: Shumpert out, Utah’s Evans in for Dunk Contest

    Feb 22, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    UPDATE 12:31 pm: The league has announced this as official — Iman Shumpert has pulled out of the All-Star Weekend dunk contest and Jeremy Evans is in. While Knicks fans are going to be bummed, the contest itself is not going to suffer — Evans is a great dunker. This should be fun (you can…

  7. Dwight Howard “too old” for another dunk contest

    Dwight Howard will be center stage All-Star Weekend in Orlando — the guy with the trade demand will either be in a different uniform or still in a Magic jersey but with trade rumors swirling around him and dominating the weekend. What he will not be center stage at is the dunk contest. The guy…
