NBA Slam Dunk Contest 2014: Fans react to new format on Twitter

Here is what the fans had to say:

    3pt competition – old format was better and more fair. Dunk-off and skills competition should obviously be individual competitions. Props and long boring irrelevant introductions should be banned from the dunk off. What is with the lights dimmed out so you can’t see the crowd? Stupid. Several years ago they used to show more of the crowds reactions and capture them better until Sprite standard sponsoring it. The camera work and the MC sucked too – dry and what was up with the glazed eyes. Why didn’t they have Kenny do that if they wanted an MC?

    Go back to the old format and get rid of all the gimmicks. Its the last all-star I watch, even when it comes to Toronto where I live unless they change the format back. What a waste of time.

    BTW Drake you suck man, stick to rapping and get off the court.

    Biggest joke I’ve ever seen. They ruined the All-Star game while ramming Sprite logos down my throat. Never will I ever buy another set of NBA tickets.
