Marc Stein of ESPN tweeted this morning who the four slam dunk contest participants will be next weekend in Orlando, and JaVale McGee wasn’t one of them.
Just going up at ESPN online: Dunk contest field is Budinger, Paul George, Shumpert and Derrick Williams. . .
Clearly not the most exciting group, and if JaVale had been selected to the dunk contest he’d without question be the favorite.
JaVale was robbed last year by losing to Blake Griffin, and he got robbed this year by being left off the contestants list for the likes of Iman Shumpert, Derrick Williams, and Chase Budinger especially.
