According to Marc Stein of ESPN the Pacers phenomenal dunker Paul George will take part in this year’s All-Star Dunk Contest. This is PG’s second dunk contest after he competed in 2012 with a dunk over two teammates and also hit this 360° dunk in the dark but finished behind eventual winner Jeremy Evans.
According to the ESPN report George, John Wall, Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes and Ben McLemore will taking on defending champion Terrence Ross in the contest.
This year the NBA will debut a new format for the contest involving a team format and head-to-head battles that is explained here.
We know PG can throw it down in games, but what is he going to have to do to win the dunk contest this year? Roy Hibbert has an idea…
