Obviously this stems from Anthony Edwards posterizing Yuta. Holy shit, that is one of the most spectacular poster dunks I have seen in my life.
That being said, why do fans clown a player so much for getting posterized? Shouldn't it be more disgraceful for being too scared to contest a dunk?
For you nephews and idiots who like to just repeat the same catchphrases like "rIp, cArEER eNDed, etc". I know it's hard but just try to think about it rationally.
When you get postered, at least you are showing enough courage to defend the play. Yeah you might get put on a highlight reel but at least you actually made an effort.
It should be even more embarrassing when a player ostensibly opts out of defending a dunk because they are afraid to get dunked on. They are literally too scared to even make a play. How is that not more embarassing?
Being dunked on is part of the game if you are actually trying to stop the other player. There shouldn't be any shame in that.
For the record, I do not mind the banter or trash talk but the hate has gone way too far on Yuta's social media. If you are one of those idiots spamming hate towards him or an NBA player because they are on the wrong end of a play, you should take a long look in the mirror and re-evaluate your life. How pathetic of a loser do you have to be to spam hate at another person.
It’s shown that the Disney Princesses (or most of them) are pretty fit and athletic. But we never really see how strong they really are (not in an emotional way but like a brute force kind of way).
So in order to see which Disney Princess is really the most brute force kind of strong just say I put them in a weightlifting competition. So just like the Olympics they just have to successfully lift the barbell and they win. I would allow the clean and jerk method as it makes things fair.
So based on that alone which Disney Princess has the gold medal? And which princesses would get the silver and bronze?
Edit: Only raw strength and no magic feats allowed. In terms of WHO qualifies as a Disney Princess I would just take the official lineup so I guess answers like Nala or Leia don’t count.

##How to Watch
Source >“Growing up as a little kid, that’s something I dreamed of – winning the NBA dunk contest trophy,” Gordon says in the opening to the documentary short "Mr. 50" that follows him through the 2020 event during All-Star Weekend in Chicago.
>The genesis of the documentary began with the idea to give viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of his weekend.
>“But it turned into something more,” Gordon said. “My friend and filmmaker Aaron Chapman chopped it up in a way that I had never seen before. It was much more artistic, much more poetic and raw.
>“The message I wanted to get across is to conquer your fears and be satisfied in your actions more than the outcome.”
>It’s clear he loves the dunk as a performance. He remembers watching the event with his dad.
>“I see art in life,” Gordon says in the documentary. “Basketball is poetry in motion. The slam dunk, it’s not only beautiful personification of grace and athleticism, but it is a tenacious action.”
>Gordon could be bitter about the results. “I don’t harbor any bad or negative feelings,” he said.
>He remains a fan of the event and is worried his experience – perfect scores, no trophy – may prevent others from participating.
>“I have some fears that I ruined the dunk contest, that people aren’t going to want to do it anymore,” Gordon said. “I hope that people see ‘Mr. 50’ and are inspired and continue to elevate that dunk contest because there are still dunks that haven’t been done. I’m not going to do them, but I hope somebody comes in and does them. It’s a great event. It’s beautiful for the game.”
That was bad. Not a single dunk was a ‘woah’, and it showed with not a single one scoring 50 (not like judging is consistent or a super reliable measure, but still).
FFS, Lavine had a better dunk in the first half of the All Star game. Should just hand it to him.
Much bad. Would like refund please.
Both have unrealistic psychical expectations forced onto them and both have unrealistic behavioral expecaltions forced onto them
Girls I think have more psychically expection, girls have to have big tits, big ass, skinny waist, flat stomach, a models face and are shamed if they wear makeup, and must never have any body hair,leading to body dysmorphia.
But guys have to deal with the pressure of having to surpress any kind of emotion because if they do they will face harsh backlash. Men also face more prejudice in the justice system compared to woman because people can't empathise with men.
So can we just agree that all of us have dumb fucking social pressures? And that attacking each other and comparing it like its a fucking contest as if you're gonna win a prize is stupid.
I know it is in the title, but here is the point breakdown
Mike Conley with 27 points in the final round.
Jayson Tatum with 17 points in the final round.
Steph Curry with 28 points in the final round
Source >Alex Caruso was among those who declined a spot in the slam dunk contest during this weekend's All-Star Game, league sources said. Caruso said earlier this week that due to the short offseason he was "maybe looking forward to (the break) a little bit more" than normal. Asked about his plans for the break, he said, "I’ll probably just play some golf with some buddies and leave it at that."
Source >Anthony Edwards, Jaylen Brown and Miles Bridges all declined to participate in the Dunk Contest, sources tell @ChrisBHaynes .
>But Zion could provide a necessary jolt if he accepts the invite.
Getting Zion would be major tho
>The 3-Point Contest will be comprised of mostly players who are All-Stars as Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is expected to participate, sources said.
>Charlotte Hornets rookie sensation LaMelo Ball turned down an invitation to participate in the Skills Challenge, sources said. With no Rising Stars Game this year, Ball’s presence was a long shot.
No LaMelo tho
