If he enters the contest i can guarantee you it will be what Vince Carter did in 2000 part 2, not those dunks but i mean it will be maybe that altering because of his insane one leg leaping gift. VC has altered the dunk creativity for two leg jumping high leapers in the contest, J.White will do the same for the "one leggers".

What i mean is all players jump higher taking of either two legs or one leg (from a running sprint), 50/50 is extremly rare. If you are a high leaper and have your highest vertical of two legs then you are a "two legger", a la Vince Carter, Dominique Wilkins, Tracy McGrady, Kobe Bryant, Jason Richardson and so on... and if you are a high leaper that gets your highest vertical of one leg running takeof then you are a "one legger", a la Julius Erving, Lebron James and J.White here... and J.White is by far the nastiest one leg leaper ive ever seen in basketball, he can get his entire damn head over the rim and he is taking advantage of this gift on the dunkcontest more so than any "one legger" has before...

Thats why i think J.White will be probably submerging the dunkcontest the same way VC did, but with all different style of dunks because of his freakish one leg leaping.... another difference is that J.White gets up higher in the air than VC ever could...

There is dunks you can and can not do leaping of two legs or sprinting of one leg, one advantage is the others disadvantage, for example:

One leg takeofs advantage = Allows you to takeof from as far distance as humanly possible.

Two leg takeofs advantage = More control of your body.

James White for example can therefore complete dunks which have NEVER been seen before in the NBA dunkcontest:

*Between the legs from the FT line
*Alley-Oop from the FT line
*Windmill from the FT line
*Jump over people from the FT line
and so on...

The dunkcontest will be one sided, but with very good intention.

He isn't the same James White that was couple years ago, but i think he could do the windmill from the FT line, but between the legs from the FT, not so sure anymore.

I think Green would be the favorite just because of his last years windmill dunk..

2013 perfect line up for the dunk contest:
JW
GG
Nick Young
and maybe some rookie who can really jump and do creative dunks

...and you put Nick Young in there. Way to go, kid...


He had a stint with Spurs, I'm not sure if that tells he will fit with the Knicks or not. Like, fit right in or be an outcast.

The dunk contest would be great for White. However, you only get so many chances to play in the NBA. I am sure he is going to work his ass off and put all his energy into simply playing well and getting to the next contract.
