What's up with that?

NBA All-Star Saturday night isn't the appointment television it used to be. New York Knicks rookie Nate Robinson (5'9") needed a dozen chances to complete an admittedly spectacular through-the-legs, off-the-backboard catch-and-dunk.

The rules for the dunk contest have changed often in the past few years, but it's hard to believe Robinson's dozen chances were stipulated. A dozen dunk attempts? Part of any contest is coming through in a limited number of tries. If today's stars can't do that, they need to get back in the gym.

your write, I wouldnt watch the dunk contest again because it was fixed by giving it to that rookie who had 14 chances for that dunk and 13 for his other dunk. some sporting events are appearing to be fixed. and the commissioner shouldnt allow this to happen. Im glad K. James doesnt paticipate in that sham.
