Rumors coming in from our NBA informants tell us that Iman Shumpert, Paul George, Chase Budinger and Derrick Williams will participate in the 2012 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Remember when LeBron said he was thinking about entering a Slam Dunk Contest soon? Well he isn’t, and nobody else notable is either. This years contest sounds like it is going to be… well, not exactly the most exciting Slam Dunk Contest to date. Shumpert is alright, George is decent, Budinger is a more skilled Scal, and Williams should be pretty good but also quite overrated. Literally all take-em or leave-em type players. If you wanted some buzz you would have added Jeremy Lin to the contest.
He may not look like the most athletic of all NBA stars, but I have my money on Houston’s Chase Budinger.
