Paul George and John Wall reportedly in dunk contest

Published Add your comment

The news we've all been waiting for may have just been released. According to ESPN NBA reporter Mark Stein, Indiana Pacers star Paul George may be set to take part in the dunk contest next weekend in New Orleans. 

Stein also went on to say in his tweets that John Wall of the Washington Wizards and Toronto's Terrence Ross - the defending champion who has confirmed he'll be trying to retain his crown - will compete along with Sacramento rookie Ben McLemore, a name predicted by Kings beat writer James Ham.

Last night, Damien Lillard already announced that he will be looking to compete as well. The Trail Blazers point man is set to make history at the All-Star weekend by taking part in every event. Lillard will play the rising stars game, the dunk contest, three point contest, and is a reserve for the All-Star game itself.

There has been great clamour for George to compete in the contest since his breathtaking 360 windmill dunk he pulled out in game verses the LA Clippers.

The reported candidates do miss out one star name though; Lebron James. Fans have been begging for the Miami Heat star to enter every year, but the reigning MVP has declined to be involved yet again.
