2011 Slam Dunk Contest

Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin (dunk video above) will be joining Wizard Center JaVale McGee, Thunder Congonese Forward Serge Ibaka and Buck Guard Brandon Jennings in this year's Slam Dunk Contest. Will we get LeBron James as well?

"This season's All-Star festivities are being held at Staples Center. The slam dunk contest is slated for Saturday, Feb. 19."

"There's so much more to look forward to than the annual letdown, or the increasingly tired debate over whether in-game dunking has outmoded the contest, or the contest outmoded itself. There's Griffin, who is dunking personified this season; McGee, a constant source of amusement, amazement, and confusion; Ibaka's good vibrations; and Jennings, even if he just ends up playing hype-man, or sidekick, to all the bombast. This year, for the first time in a while, the dunk contest really will be must-watch television."
