When the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Competition began on Saturday night, fans were introduced to a new format that left everyone confused. There was a “freestyle” portion added to the contest, where players from the East and West threw down dunks at their own will.
However, instead of being entertaining and getting the fans excited, people were left wondering what the hell was going on.
Here is what the fans had to say:
If the Dunk Contest was dead, it just rolled over in its grave. #SprintDunk
