Last night, the NBA announced this year’s field for the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. The list isn’t filled with the league’s biggest super stars, and may leave the “casual” NBA fan wondering who all the contestants are. But us — the die hard basketball fans — know this year’s dunk contest on February 16th has the opportunity to be a great one. Jeremy Evans will be defending his title from last year, and will be going against one of the best dunkers I have seen in James “Flight” White. The rest of the field includes veteran dunker Gerald Green, Eric Bledsoe, Kenneth “Manimal” Faried, and rookie Terrence Ross. Green, White, and Evans all have the length and athleticism to wow the crowd and all have prior experience in prime time dunk contest. Don’t sleep on rookie Terrence Ross, who has been dunking all over the league and has the potential to sneak up and blow away the competition. Eric Bledsoe is the shortest of the group, and may play to the crowd with the ‘Nate Robinson Effect’. Kenneth Faried is more of a power dunker, but the fans love seeing aggressive strong throw downs. I wonder if he will try and break the backboard? So who are you taking as your 2013 Dunk Contest winner? Let us know in the comment section below. If you need some help deciding, here are some video highlights, starting with Gerald Green vs. James White in Russia from 2010:  James White vs. Gerald Green   Jeremy Evans James White Gerald Green Terrence Ross Kenneth Faried Eric Bledsoe   Related posts: What Will 2013 Bring For The Washington Wizards?
