This is how excited fans were watching the 2017 NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday night.
Defending champ Zach LaVine declined to defend his title, and he was wise to do so. 2016 runner-up Aaron Gordon and Clippers star DeAndre Jordan headlined the four-man field, so naturally they failed to make the final.
Sure, there were some good dunks. But by the end, everyone was reminded why we were over the dunk contest before last year.
DJ jumps over a DJ
Jordan's first dunk had all the originality of Blake Griffin's Kia dunk — you know, the one from six years ago. Khaled's beard and gut were only slightly bigger than Baron Davis'. "We the best"? Not even close.
Everyone jumped over people
And the Suns' Derrick Jones Jr. needed a lil' boost with a push-off to pull off this one. Stop it. No more people.
It just droned on
This isn't what we meant when we said no more people. But Aaron Gordon turned to technology for his first dunk.
Um, you're the one who's supposed to be soaring
This isn't what we came to see from Aaron Gordon. The drone dropped the ball, and he tried to dunk it on one hop. And failed. Reload the drone. Try again. Nope. Arghhhh.
Not this year
Remember how Gordon nailed his dunks last year as a rookie and everyone said he should've won? Not this year. Turns out experience didn't help him against the three first-timers.

The Pacers' Glenn Robinson III did some Dee Brown-Dab hybrid dunk that he didn't flush cleanly. And he was the best dunker of the night.
This looks amazing
Until you learn Jones failed to nail this dunk in three tries. It ultimately cost him the title.
Look how excited he is
You're the winner, GR3.
We're way ahead of you
Robinson was ready to do what the rest of us already had moved on to. Nighty night, dunk contest.
