The NBA put Shumpert in so they could include Lin.



Gotta be honest... not impressed by this field. Well, Paul George, absolutely impressed, but the rest... I dunno. Budinger gets up, but can he do anything interesting? Never seen anything special from him in a game. Derrick Williams and Iman Shumpert can jump too, but are they dunk contest material? Maybe they are and I just don't know. I wanted to see Jeremy Evans from the Jazz.

I hope George jumps over Hibbert.

I don't know how creative Budinger is but that dude can get UP. He'll probably throw down some sick stuff and get the lowest scores.

at least no one is a golden boy here so the nba won't cheat you a win after you do a lame dunk over a car.

I'm surprised Westbrook or DeAndre Jordan aren't competing.

I'll root for Chase Buddinger. Have to support my own

Wait, wtf is this?

Quote:
Griffin is not defending his dunk title, but sources said that the annual dunk contest has a new format which will consist of only one round and in which the winner will be solely determined by fan vote.


All four competitors in the 2012 dunk field are first-timers and will be formally announced later Thursday, sources said. Each entrant will get three dunks, with fan voting to open after the foursome completes their first dunks.
It's 100% fan vote?

Jeremy Lin, your 2012 Slam Dunk Champion.
