So glad they got all the big names for this year’s dunk contest
Some years you get the big names for dunk contests like Dr. J, Michael Jordan, Domnique Wilkins, Vince Carter, and Kobe Bryant. Other years not so much. And this year... well not exactly MJ vs Nique.
Some will argue for COVID reasons it's not safe to bring a large amount of dunkers, but you invited 5 judges?
Since the dunk contest is going to take place at halftime of the All-Star game, if this is the field, they should just tell them to stay home. Have the judges just give scores to the All-Stars when they come back out and run their lay-up lines.
Best lay-up line dunk wins. But then I suppose LeBron would have to participate in and risk losing or being named the "winner" when everyone knows someone like Lavine had the best dunk.
p.s. If you're going to go with three rather unknowns, might as well make it four and add Javonte Green at least.
