Default Sprite Slam DUNK Contest! (Participants announced)

So you have an East vs. West format for all of the Saturday events.

East:

James White
Gerald Green
Terrance Ross

West:

Kenneth Faried
Eric Bledsoe
Jeremy Evans (Defending champ)

Who's got the better side?

cool

east looks better

for me, swingmen look best dunking, no offense to them, they are really exciting players, but imo, farried and bledsoe are clearly the bottom 2 dunkers, of the 6.

Bledsoe does 360's between the legs in warmup lines.. I wouldn't be so sure. Plus he has the Nate Robinson little guy factor in his favor. Also DeAndre Jordan got an invite and turned it down because he was pissed he wasn't even on the all star ballot.

I didn't know that they were using 6 participants this year but I'm happy they decided to. East is going to be unreal.

James White and Ross are in it

But wtf is this East vs West thing...i hope that doesn't ruin it. We need to see White do his best dunks and the same goes for Ross.

I'd hate to see for instance, an East player do a basic dunk because at the end of the last round it's the East's turn and all they need to win is 6 points or whatever.

Finally some real good dunk contest potential with White, Green, and Bledsoe. Will be interesting to see what kind of dunk contest dunker Faried is. Evans was a pretty weak dunk contest winner, so it'll be interesting to see if he steps up his game with some better competition.

I think east wins though. All 3 of their guys are known flashy dunkers who will try crazy shit.

i can only speak for myself, i just think that SG/SFs look the best dunking. i didnt really like nate in the dunk contest, or even bigs like dwight

just a personal preference
