Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz was the eventual winner of a dreadful little NBA Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday. The league changed the format of the contest so that fans voted on the total compilation of each contestant's three dunks ... so there wasn't a "winning" dunk per se.
But Evans' two-ball dunk over a seated Gordon Hayward appeared to draw the most positive reaction on Twitter. Was it better than Paul George's barely visible Human Glowstick dunk or summit of Mt. Roy Hibbert? Take a look below the jump and vote.
Here's the Evans double dunk:
The two others that drew positive reaction were the Human Glowstick and Mt. Hibbert, both by the Pacers' Paul George. Yes, the pickings were that slim on Saturday. Derrick Williams did a windmill over a Harley chopper (yay?) and Chase Budinger's best attempt was probably a contrived, revived blindfolded reverse dunk with Cedric Ceballos' help. I hardly think they'd get any love at all in better years.
So of our three contenders, which was the best? Vote in our poll.
