    Really happy to see PG and T Ross defending his title, was hoping to see Perry Jones though.

    No love for big men, I suppose.

    I wanted to see Alphabet on this list.

    Apparently he's in the skills challenge

    Edit: @WojYahooNBA: Yahoo Sources: Milwaukee phenom Giannis Antetokounmpo - the Greek Freak - will participate in ASW Skills Challenge. http://t.co/v63Dep3paR

    Not a bad list? Aside from Crypto-Nate, I don't want to see the 6'3" and under club posing as spectacular Dunkers. MJ, Clyde, Kemp and Nique, they are not.... #starsrepresentingMIA

    PG will win because he's the most popular on that list

    Winning a dunk contest has nothing to do with being popular

    I don't care about this event but I'm glad to see Paul George participating. It's good for him and Indiana. They need exposure.

    Lilliard doesnt have a chance. Thats not his game. Had some decent game dunks but not good enough to be in a dunk contest.

    For the first time in a while, I can say I have heard of all of the contestants. Usually they throw in some random young guy.

    i actually like this list much much more than recent years. While it isn't your superstars, it is recognizable names and all-stars.

    Paul george - Superstar and playing phenomenal
    John Wall - All-Star and best PG in the east
    Damien Lillard - All-star
    Terrence Ross - Defending Champ
    Harrison Barnes - Young upcoming prospect
    Ben McLemore - Young upcoming prospect

    Its a slow and small progress but a progress none the less. I dont know how good anyone of them are at dunking compared to the rest of the league. Ross won last year so hes good. PG had that 360 in game that was sick, so im sure he'll show up. As for the rest i dont know how great of dunkers they are. But im intrigued this year none the less. Something i cant say for recent years.

    With the old format with judges? Correct. However, now, I think the fans decide.

    Even though I am not even supporting this notion of a crappy slam dunk contest without any more legal available creative dunks... I'll entertain you all:
    You're such a youngster. :rolleyes:
