A victory for Robinson is a victory for the Little People across the world. Good for him. All 2 feet 11 of him.
He was clearly the crowd favorite and saved the dunk contest. It went from mediocre to great because of Robinson.
Dwight Howard shouldn't have been in the final round. No way. He didn't deserve it. Fernandez did.
Fernandez's first two dunks were far more challenging and creative and the judges -- because of bias toward Howard -- gave Fernandez low ball scores of 42 in his first two rounds when Robinson deserved far higher.
Howard got two perfect scores but didn't deserve them.
That was awful. Howard was a legacy pick. The judges wanted him in the final round because he's popular.
That was a G-E-I-C-O conspiracy.
But the dunk contest overall was pretty good and borderline great. Next year it might even be better with the news that LeBron James is planning to compete it. If he does, that will be a ratings bonanza.
In the meantime, with Robinson the new champion, somewhere Gary Coleman is partying like crazy.
