A lot of casual fans shrugged when the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest lineup was announced — these are pretty much guys from the end of the NBA bench.
But those of us basketball junkies high-fived each other (virtually) because the NBA went out and got dunk contest guys to do it. Specifically the Knicks James White (the guy Vegas bookmakers have as the favorite) and the Pacers Gerald Green. These guys know how to do dunk contest dunks.
This is White and Green going head to head in the 2010 Russian Cup dunk contest, one of those things that nobody out here watched live but became a YouTube hit. This is what you can expect this Saturday night. It’s going to be a fun dunk contest.
And sorry about the music with the post, just hit mute. I did.
