Aaron Gordon got robbed again. I don't know why they even score if it's a one dunk winner takes all. The judges should see both then vote which is better. It's 5 judges so it can't end in a tie. I actually think the judges were just trying to make it a tie again and one too many put it as a 9.

Jones had the same dunk over and over again.
What Gordon did off the side of the backboard requries an absurd level of coordination and athleticism. It's just way harder than whatever Jones did.

Wade ruined any shot we had at a Gordon/LaVine/DJJ/ + Zion or Ja contest next year. How do they just not add up total points after so many dunks instead of scheming a way for Gordon to lose. Why bother keeping score if Gordon has more points versus the 46 DJJ got for his first dunk. Gordon will forever be the people’s champ because every competition he enters brings the dunk contest “back” lol.

That Gordon straight one hand windmill is one of the greatest dunks I've seen.

HE was robbed and it just looked like they were tired of giving 50's ...both of those guys had some incredible slams..shoulda just let it go..Wade wasn't going let any other person save his man for the Heat win.
Candice Parker had no business giving out a 9 when she did.

That was the best dunk of the night, but you had to love when he dunked over Tacko, that got me and my daughter shouting.

No comments on the actual all-star game? I found it to be one of the best ones I've ever seen. So intense. Especially that 4th quarter. Even without a Cavalier representing it, I found it to be... fun?

Kyrie out for the season with shoulder surgery. Played in 20 games this season. Skilled but fragile. Among other things.

We got the best years from him, and it still prob cost us a title when he got hurt in 2015.

He's getting old really fast. I wish it hadn't gone down that way, but at least we got something for him.

Colin appears to be at the other end of the durability scale vs Kyrie, so far anyhow.
Wouldn't surprise me if Sexton has more complete career games played right now compared to Kyrie's longer career..

We don't really know how Collin ends up. If he can't hit a dagger to clinch a chip is he worse than Kyrie? What if he is the 2nd leading scorer on a series of playoff games? What if he misses only a handful of games in 10 years?

Right now he is giving us similar production to what Kyrie did at the same age. That's more than we could have asked for at the 8th pick.
