2012 NBA Slam Dunk Contest Participants

Arguably the most exciting part of the NBA All-Star Weekend has got to be the Slam Dunk Contest. And thus there is always a lot of thought about who should participate. The NBA announced those contestants this morning and let's take a look at them plus some highlights of each.

Chase Budinger, F, Houston Rockets

Paul George, G, Indiana Pacers

Iman Shumpert, G, New York Knicks Jeremy Evans, F, Utah Jazz

Derrick Williams, F, Minnesota Timberwolves 

A pretty good group although without the starpower of a year ago. If I had to pick someone right now, I'd go with Williams as I think he has been the best dunker thus far of the four this season although Shumpert could very well win if you get a strong turnout of Knicks fans in the voting.

The Slam Dunk Contest will be held at 8 p.m. on Saturday night, February 25th.
