Please don’t injure yourself in the process. That’s all I’m asking.

So.... the Lakers are relevant again and we need a guy in this "contest" I see. How'd that work out for Shannon Brown the last time the league bestowed this honor..... :lol:

To be fair to Shams... This smells of Howard being drunk off his newfound popularity, and thinking being in the Dunk contest might help fan the fires, so he floats the story to see if it gets any traction... It goes over like a led zepplin and he's all "Where are you guys getting these crazy stories."

It's all good tho... He should do the 3pt contest anyway.

I’ve got to say this is disappointing

McGee was the most memorable big man in the dunk contest recently (he was robbed)

They better have some actually young dunkers there... this seems like ja morrants year to win the dunk contest (before Zion does it next year)


Going back mcgee being robbed...
He had the most unique dunk I ever saw when he dunked on two hoops at the same time , and all Blake did was jump over the hood of a car... something literally every nba player could do...

Blake Griffin was really the media darling back then
USA Celtics in full effect. Amazing chemistry building experience right there for the main core of the team
