Finding out tomorrow if I’m in the dunking contest
Looking at the currently scheduled participants, only Gerald Wallace is currently facing an injury, with a tweaked hamstring he played through against the Hornets on Saturday. If Wallace can’t or won’t go, it removes the lone “star” of the dunk contest. It also brings into question why there’s a dunk-in between Eric Gordon and DeMar DeRozan if Williams gets an automatic in. There’s no question Williams can get up. The question is if he’s earned his way in automatically, and exactly who he’s replacing, if he is.
