NBA All Star Saturday Night ended on a dull note, as the slam dunk contest failed to capture the interest of fans both in attendance in Cleveland and on social media.
It was so boring, even the TNT broadcast team couldn’t stop talking about how bad it was, even as the 2022 champion, Obi Toppin of the New York Knicks, was receiving his trophy, wrapping up a contest that delivered no memorable moments. A far cry from the days of Jordan, Bryant, and Carter.
“I just woke up. There was a slam dunk contest?” said Kenny Smith afterwards.
And Twitter pulled no punches voicing their discontent.

The commentary team mentioned possibly changing up the order of the evening. But it’s apparent that the league might have to do something.
