    [rQUOTEr]The Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo and Orlando Magic's Victor Oladipo have committed to participating in the All-Star Weekend Slam Dunk contest, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

    Brooklyn Nets center Mason Plumlee will be a part of the competition too, sources told Yahoo Sports.

    The dunk contest is set as the final event of All-Star Saturday night on Feb. 14 at the Barclays Center in New York. Another strong possibility to join the field is Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Zach LaVine, league sources told Yahoo.

    The All-Star game is Feb. 15 at Madison Square Garden.

    Plumlee is a pretty milquetoast dunker:

    I guess I'd watch the highlights of the Greek Freak winning it.

    Why invite Plumlee? When is the last time a high motor player had a good showing in this thing?

    Air Bud came pretty close in 2012 (losing in the final to Evans).

    Could be interesting this year if Wiggins, Lavine, and Giannis participate. All 3 crazy athletic and could possibly raise the bar if they take it serious and scratch that weird format from last year.

    Why did people in this thread interpret "high motor" as "white"?

    I would definitely DVR this if Wiggins was in it. Oladipo should run away with this.

    I hope Lavine gets a spot. He has a crazy vertical. Gerald Green level. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/baoY0pddIR4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    When I think high-flying super acrobatic dunks, I think Plumlee.
