Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz won the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest tonight.
The less said about tonight’s “dunk” contest the better. That’s not taking anything away from Evans’ double fisted dunk over a seated Gordon “Olive Garden” Hayward, it’s just that the contest wasn’t fun or that interesting.
As many have said on Twitter tonight in the aftermath of the colossal snooze fest, new rules for the 2013 Slam Dunk contest. Bring back the judges, eliminate props, create stricter attempt limits, cash prizes, etc. Maybe David Stern should suspense LeBron James for five games if he bails out on the dunk contest next year.
