This is amazing — a chart and video of every dunk and its score in every NBA dunk contest. Click that link and you will waste a lot of your day checking out old dunk contests. You know what, waste is not the right word… spend. Spend your day.

Marcus Camby will not be playing for the Blazers on their current road trip. If they get more games from LaMarcus Aldridge like they did Tuesday it won’t matter.

Rick Adelman is trying to figure out how to get Aaron Brooks going again.

Shawn Marion and Jason Terry may well continue to come off the bench in Dallas. Yes, that means Brian Cardinal starts, at least until Peja gets right.

John Salmons could be back in the Bucks lineup soon.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Hawks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. kneed in the groin while defending 76ers (video)

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
