Brainstorming Ways That Gerald Can Walk Away With The Slam Dunk Trophy
It’s just been reported that Spud Webb will participate as a judge in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday, Feb 13th. Webb is known to be quite friendly with reigning champ, and contestant Nate Robinson. In order to unseat Nate, Gerald Wallace is going to have to pull out some pretty remarkable dunks.
UPDATE: It looks like Flip Murray is going to Dallas to help Gerald with the Dunk Contest. It’s going to be interesting to see what they pull off.
Here are a few of our initial ideas on what Crash might do when given the opportunity to showcase what he’s got. Of course, every great dunk gets a sweet name. Let us know if you have any other dunk ideas in mind.
DUNK #1. “The Dallas State Fair”
It’s pretty simple – Gerald will bring out “Big Tex” from the State Fair of Texas, and dunk over him, clearing his cowboy hat.
DUNK #2. “First In Flight”
In this one, Gerald would pull out his mouth-piece and put a healthy serving of NC BBQ inside. Then as he runs from half-court , he would shake a full bottle of Texas Pete sauce all over the BBQ and put the mouthpiece in as he leaps from the foul-line. After slamming the ball through the rim, the judges would realize that a miniature model ship had been placed inside the Texas Pete bottle.
DUNK #3. “Pistolas”
For this dunk, Crash will hold a Texas beer can in each hand ( Shiner & Lone Star). Stephen Jackson will lob the ball toward the goal, while Gerald pounds the beers and twirls the bottles into holsters on each hip as he leaps for a reverse jam. As he lands back onto the court, he’ll have already pulled the beers back out of the holsters in time to stop Stephen Jackson from punching a fan in the second row.
DUNK #4. “T. Boone Pickens Windmill Jam”
Gerald nearly gave this away during a game against the Kings earlier this season, but this dunk will be a windmill jam that creates such a furious gust that it will power the entire arena – yes the turbo-huge Texas Stadium.
DUNK #5. “Texas Two-Step”
This is one that I’m certain we’ll see. To start, Gerald will lead a group of line-dancers in a fast-paced routine, but eventually the line stands side-by-side from the baseline to the top of the key. With spurs on his heels, Crash will then leap over all of the line dancers for the slam. The NBA will finally allow spurs after seeing this display.

the "texas state fair" may be too easy for gerald.
Since Nate Robinson was able to talk the good-natured Dwight Howard into being used as a prop in the past, I say Nate pays it forward.
Gerald pumps Nate up as an amazing athlete, reminding us that he played football and basketball at the University of Washington. Nate comes out in pads and his Huskies football jersey — then Gerald slips on an Alabama football jersey, trucks over Nate on his way to the goal and receives a football pass style lob from Flip and jams it home.
I like the football idea –
My only concern is that Flip Murray never passes the ball. He’ll probably just try to shoot jumpers instead of giving to Gerald.
An Ajinca wallpaper could look good. Only the biggest fans would plaster than on their computers
I think a Bo-Berry Biscuit should get thrown in on the GottaWannaNeeda… Slam Jam.
The GottaWannaNeedaGettaHava Bojangles Bo-Jam:
To honor Charlotte’s most treasured culinary achievement, Gerald has a Cajun Fillet Biscuit, some Bo-Rounds and a Cinna-Bo Biscuit placed on top of the backboard, swipes em off, bite of each, then reverse jam, greasy fingers and all.
Ajinca made the D-League All-Star game. He won’t be able to play because he is injured. I still think you guys should still show him some love. Maybe a wallpaper or something to commemorate Double A’s biggest accomplishment thus far.
Bo-Berries are alright, but I'm a Cinna-Bo guy myself.
However, I saw that Bo-Berries are going to be available heart-shaped this weekend for Valentines — might have to get a couple for my sweetheart…
Um, let's think of some more dunks before this turns into the equivalent of a Bojangles Twitter account.
I caught the replay of Gerald’s first dunk contest on NBATV last night. He looked so young – the competition final round came down to Gerald Wallace and Jason Richardson.
Gerald almost sealed it, but J-Rich was just insane.
Ok – I have another dunk idea –
It’s called “The No-Witzki“
Flip Murray and Gerald Wallace will call Dirk Nowitzki and his estranged ex-fiance, Cristal Taylor together to reconcile things on the court. As this will inevitably result in a very awkward, public argument, Dirk will head toward the exit with Taylor chasing him. As they berate each other, Gerald will leap over both Dirk and his ex-fiance for a one handed jam.
With his other hand (to be determined), Wallace will retrieve the $250,000 engagement ring from Dirk’s ex. After the contest, Dirk and Gerald will head down to Houston to cash in the diamond loot and get some grillz from Paul Wall. Flip won’t be invited.
he should jump through a ring of fire.. blindfolded.. in a wheelchair.. with weights attached.
Hi. My aunt recommended your blog to me. Thanks for sharing!
Maybe you’ve tried out twitterfeed with your website, i think it could be neat.
Bowling ball dunk. Do a creative dunk with a bowling ball and a basketball. You’d really be showing off your ups with something so heavy weighing you down. Maybe even weigh the bowling ball on a scale before the dunk as Part of a performance!
