might as well give bledsoe the trophy. he's a clipper, and we know how stern seems to be on the clipper fluff mode right now. Griffins fake dunk contest win, chris paul deal, billups deal.

so i guess bledsoe is next.

James White is going to destroy this competition.

I believe he´s gonna win it but it won´t be easy against Green/Ross. He isn´t in his dunking prime any more, this summer he had a dunk contest where he was able to do only 1 dunk because he injured himself.

And dont underrate Ross, man. Just look at this dunk.

Yep



From power windmills to through the legs he does them from the free throw line.

Also has a sick ?20 but yeah.

Barring missed dunks or injury, he has about 7 dunks he can go to that will net him 50s

I got James White. Was so stoked to hear he's in it, if he can still get up like that he's gonna win it. Good field of dunkers this year. I just wish some of the bigger name guys would participate. Lebron has never done it, Durant (has a few sick dunks actually, watch his lockout hoop mixtapes), JR Smith, Rudy Gay maybe. Some more familiar names would help it.

I wanted James White in the dunk contest for years. All of those dunks he did in that competition would mop the floor with all of the dunks we have seen in the past 5 years. I don't know if he still has the same athleticism as he did years ago but he should easily win this contest if he converts on all of his dunks. Hopefully he still has the atleticism to do all of those dunks from the free throw lne with his head at rim height. Lol.

Dad threw an assist to him years ago just running a rec pickup game. As my dad remembered it he threw him an assist threw his legs and White took off from where he caught it(the free throw line) and dunked it lol. I was on the other side of the gym playing so I missed it lol!
