Default 2011 Slam Dunk Contest Participants leaked

Just saw on twitter that it's gonna be Blake Griffin, Javale McGee, Serge Ibaka, and Brandon Jennings.

Griffin is clearly the favourite (although I think he's much more of an in-game dunker), but Brandon Jennings will surprise alot of people. He used to absolutely fly in high school.

He needs to replace Serge Ibaka.

I pick 6'0" Brandon Jennings to win the Dunk contest.

Yeah Lebron would pull off some sick dunks no doubt.

Damn I didn't know Jennings could do those.

Well we might have a close competition after all.

Still, I would love to see Lebron and Griffin go at it.

im sorry but power dunkers in the dunk contest are boring as hell to me.

the only thing they ever do that looks cool is assault the rim but its just not that impressive when a big dude crushes it with nobody guarding him.

other than that they have no creativity and are forced to use stupid props to win (see idiotic Superman dunk that wasnt even a dunk)

never mind you are just as likely to end up with a Birdman-like performance when you pick an in game dunker.


they need to do something like an And1 showcase or whatever dunk artists there are out there go up against some NBA guys.
