He first made an electrifying two-handed slam on an alley-oop pass off the side of the backboard from teammate Paul Pierce in the first round. Green then jumped over fellow finalist Nate Robinson while wearing the No. 7 Celtics jersey of 1991 dunk champion Dee Brown – and shielding his eyes in the crook of his elbow in an homage to Brown’s memorable no-look dunk. Green easily won over the five-man judges’ panel of Michael Jordan, Julius Erving, Dominique Wilkins, Kobe Bryant and Vince Carter – particularly when Robinson, the diminutive 2006 champion, missed nine consecutive times on his final dunk before finally landing a one-handed spin move. LAS VEGAS – Boston’s Gerald Green capped All-Star Saturday with an acrobatic leap over a table to win the dunk contest, and Miami’s Jason Kapono fell just short of an event record while winning the 3-Point Shootout. Green, the Celtics’ 20-year-old swingman, performed his two most memorable dunks in the first round before that final leap over a table bearing the All-Star game logo for a windmill jam. Green and Robinson eliminated Orlando’s Dwight Howard and Chicago’s Tyrus Thomas in the first round, even though the 6-foot-11 Howard came up with the most original move. While catching a high bounce pass from teammate Jameer Nelson for a right-handed slam, Howard reached nearly to the top of the backboard to slap a sticker bearing his face onto the glass – 12 feet, 6 inches off the ground, according to Nelson. Earlier, Kapono beat stars Gilbert Arenas and Dirk Nowitzki with a final-round 24 – one shy of the event record. Kapono tied Mark Price’s final-round record and fell just one point shy of Craig Hodges’ overall mark with an impressive performance in the last round. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
