  • You want to see those?

  • The bigger guys get in it and, uh, you know, it's kind of disappointing when you don't see the bigger names get in.

  • How about LeBron James?

  • I mean, I know, obviously he carries a pretty large load throughout the course of the season.

  • He's always trying to win a championship, which is understood.

  • He participated in like you just mentioned.

  • And why do you think we haven't seen LeBron James in a slam dunk competition?

  • I don't know.

  • I mean, for 10 years, we've been, you know, wishing and hoping, did he get in it?

  • And that was the one thing that, you know, All the guys like him have a dunk contest championship trophy, and I just thought, like in 2000 and 89 and 10, I thought they were the three years that, uh, he could have wanted easily and went on by this business.

  • You know, um, we're joined by Spud Webb, the 1986 NBA slam dunk champion NBA All Star Weekend is coming to Atlanta and you're gonna be a judge this year.

  • He had to go with that one.

  • Jason Richardson, Josh Smith, spud.

  • So now you're a judge.

  • Lay it out there for those that are going to be taken part.

  • What do you want to see?

  • What would have you flash a tent?

  • Well, I mean, we've got some guys people probably haven't seen much, but they jump out the gym so hopefully they can carry the show.

  • That doing something, it's gonna be hard to say, You know, do something new, because what can you do?

  • Knew all these guys over the past decades has been doing all the dunks, so I don't know what they can come up with.

  • But these guys, the young guys are very creative, so I just want to see some creative, good, powerful dunks.

  • I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a proper there somewhere.

  • I don't I don't care for the problems.

  • I liked it.

  • You know, you don't want I don't want better type.

  • It's gonna be crazy to see you guys.

  • You know, especially guys like Zach Lavine, Aaron Gordon.

  • Some of the dunks they've done in the past.

  • See, you know what these guys can live up to.

  • But it's what I want to ask you.

  • How do you feel ultimately, about the NBA's decision to hold the All Star weekend in Atlanta during a pandemic?

  • Well, definitely.

  • You know that, uh, you know, the guys sound like they didn't want to, you know, have it.

  • But, you know, you gotta go with the job, take you.

  • So, uh, but it's just a good good cause though you got hbcu, uh, they donate to that, uh, awareness of covid 19.

  • All that get out on national TV.

  • And, uh, and the NBA does an excellent job at, uh, promoting, um, charities and, uh, Coben being safe and protective and wearing your mask and distance.

  • But have all the guys in the league you know, we've seen some massive games.

  • Fred VanVleet goes for 50 points one night.

  • You know, as a little guy as key would call me.

  • Are there any little guys out there that you're like, yo, his game, his game reminds me of mine.

  • He can get it in a lot of different ways.

  • Yeah, J I mean, you know, you probably sit there.

  • You you scored a lot.

  • Probably say, hey, uh, if I played in today's game, a point guard get to shoot first that that never happened back in the day.

  • And then you see, guys like diamond, you know, every night, come home, you go.

  • Let me see a Poland because you, you know, that's the way you want to play it in the long clock.

  • Go off.

  • You find that name is very special, but I watched all the guys carried Dame Curry.

  • I watch all the young, uh I mean the point guards because, you know, that's the way you wanted to play back in the day.

  • But now Dominique was right in the year.

  • I'm telling me where he is and where he's going to be so I can get him the ball last night was just one last question on my part.

  • Well, this is one hell of a race we're watching right now.

  • Before the All Star break just dropped, do well and be dropped 40 points last night, 19 rebounds against the Utah Jazz and Rudy Gobert.

  • James Harden had a triple double.

  • LeBron sat out against the Kings but obviously shows you the importance of him on the floor.

  • If you have to rank those three, where are they being your M V p.

  • Voting lists right now?

  • But, yeah, I think I think LeBron from front runner right now.

  • And, uh, Lloyd.

  • He's been playing at that they at that age.

  • But if he been a Joker man, I sit there and watch them at every night to man, that's that's tough.

  • And then now James is you know, people thought he just dribble around and what you do, but he makes a lot of people better man more than people think.

  • So I think he's, uh if they keep winning and Durant come back, I think one of those guys, uh, have a chance to win the MVP.

  • But I think right now LeBron is just no way ahead of people on that right now.

  • But Joker, he's something to watch the up.
