When I saw that Jeremy Evans wasn't invited to the Dunk Contest, I assumed it was because the NBA would only be inviting big name stars, but that's not the case. Chase Budinger? Iman Shupert? I've never heard of these guys. I looked up Budinger on youtube to see what he can do. Jeremy Evans should definitely be in instead of him. The most exciting dunk I could find Budinger doing is a pretty simple two-hand dunk. That can be exciting in the flow of a game, but I haven't seen anything that should qualify him over Evans' insane jumping ability.

Why would he be invited?

I love how Jazz fans always think that the Jazz are always hettig snubbed or left out, haha.

They didn't invite Jeremy because the ceiling in the arena is not high enough. Hang in there, Jeremy, most Jazz fans are glad you're on the team. But seriously, can Alec really outjump you?

Just a couple of things I have noticed lately.Coach Corbyn puts in slower players at the end of the 4th qtr. Why doesn't he keep the athletic players in when they are doing well? Do starters have to finish the game? Is Milsap hurt? He casually went in for a layup in the Oklahoma game in Utah and got fowled. He has not played with as much enthusiasm the past couple of games. Just wondering.
I think we need the lady at the Utah Oklahoma game who caused quite the entertainment to be the new mascot. Also, when the other team shoots a free throw we need her to cause a rucous. That definitely would be more disconcerting than the slap sticks.
Jazz fans should start laughing as the other team is shooting free throws. How distracting would that be? One mans opinion.

I won't even bother watching it, it's turned into a show for the big market fans. The whole weekend is a big bore.
