Next weeks NBA All-Star Game weekend in Houston Texas should be a dazzler with the 3-point contest, rising stars challenge, skills competition, the All-Star game itself, and the Slam Dunk Contest.The Slam Dunk contest participants are as follows: Jeremy Evans (Utah Jazz), Gerald Green (Indiana Pacers), Terrence Ross (Toronto Raptor), James White (NY Knicks), Eric Bledsoe (LA Clippers) and Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets).If I were a betting man, I would put my money down on James White. Here’s why:

The Dunk Contest at NBA All-Star Saturday Night can be a bit hit or miss. We might have a hit this year because of Knicks James White.

Yes, he is a bench warmer, but not your average bench...
Thursday night, TNT’s Inside The NBA crew revealed the six participants in the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. The list includes Eric Bledsoe, Kenneth Faried, Terrence Ross…blah, blah, blah…nobody cares. Why? Because the only people that matter are James “Flight” White and Gerald Green, who will finally face each other in a dunk contest on American soil (see above video...
Neither Pacer will be considered a favorite, but both will have a chance.
Gerald Green, who is pretty much a bench warmer these days, will get an opportunity to at least do something on the court when he competes in the dunk comp at All-Star Weekend in Houston. Green is an insane dunker, and would be the favorite if it weren't for New York's James White. These two have...
Basketball fans enjoyed two pleasant surprises as this year’s Slam Dunk Contest participants were announced. Firstly, the NBA caught us all off guard by going with six contestants. Though this used to be the norm (as many as nine have dunked in the past), but the league reduced he number of dunkers to four following the 2001 contest. More dunkers obviously means more dunks...

Let’s rundown the competitors for both challenges for next weekend’s break.
First, the Slam Dunk Contest.

Knicks vs. Timberwolves: MSG 8pm
The Knicks put out a half-hearted attempt at playing basketball Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards and it resulted in a loss. Against a similarly poor team they must avoid the lapses and effort and bring it to the Timberwolves right from the start. Steve Novak and James White were both added as part of the NBA All...
The snow has fallen and there's virtually nobody to be seen on the roads!There aren't many people around the tri-state areas cruising the airways much either at this point, which has made it difficult for the Knicks to come back home following Friday night's victory over the Timberwolves.Since we're all snowed in together, let's take a look at some links to figure...
