On a night of tributes, Derrick Williams' capped the 2012 Slam Dunk Contest off by paying homage to Nate Robinson. It was only fitting that the dunk contest ended this way. It wasn't a leap over a car or a lasting dunk -- just Williams trying, and failing, to complete his night ... over and over again.
He began by trying to throw the ball off the backboard to himself before putting it between his legs for the jam. After two attempts that weren't even close, he brought Ricky Rubio in to toss it off the backboard for him. That still didn't work, and things started to get awkward.
Here's a helpful montage of his attempts. It ends with success, which is good for all our morale.
And so it ended, mercifully. A night of spectacular "meh" ended with an awkward two-minute session of misses and a fairly bland dunk.
