• Gerald Green, James White, Kenneth Faried talk Slam Dunk Contest ahead of All-Star Saturday

    Summary of 8 articles · Updated Feb 17, 2013
    Gerald Green sees himself winning one last Slam Dunk Contest. Kenneth Faried, James White, 2007 dunk champion Gerald Green and Eric Bledsoe also were in the field, while Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade were among the All-Stars taking in the show. Knicks reserve James White missed all seven of his dunk attempts in the second round and finished in last place in the Slam Dunk competition – ending a disappointing All-Star Saturday night for Big Apple participants. The Sprite Slam Dunk Contest, the main event of State Farm All-Star Saturday Night, is just hours away the broadcast begins at 8:30 p.m. "This is honestly my first really big dunk contest, so I was nervous," said Ross, the eighth overall pick in last year's draft out of Washington. White also went for presentation points with his opening dunk, bringing out women dressed as flight attendants who formed a path on the court. Evans said he hasn't gotten the respect a reigning title-holder should receive; while this is true in my case, I suspect I will be writing much more about his dunking prowess if he follows through on his promise to make a statement and win tonight.
