Yeah... and Nate SHOULD lose points for taking 50 tries on his dunk.

By having it spaced like the Olympics, star players would actually be in the contest. Also repeat wouldn't be as common and you would see more creativity from event to event.


I don't know if spacing the contest would help bringing more stars to it... but upping the prize would certainly do it.


I guess it's true that it might not bring more stars to it, but it would at least up the creativity level. I just get the feeling we would see some really amazing stuff if players had more time to come up with and execute their dunks.
