Haha

You must be one of the idiots on the NBA.com pole that voted for Gerald Green, whom is currently 24k(#1 by landslide) compared to James Whites 7k(4th)...baffling.

Gotta go with Green and White. Interested to see what Bledsoe will bring to the table, he has some creative teammates in Griffin, Paul and Jordan.

Im going with James White......between the legs from the free throw line lol

Gerald Green has bounce, but I think James can beat him.

Dont sleep on Bledsoe either.

I would have preferred a good player that can dunk then James White though. Who is just a run and jump athlete that is riding the bench.

James white is more agile and

James white is more agile isn't rigid mechanical like Green is. Gerald movent and body wise is very straight forward.

But the dunk contest is

But the dunk contest is strictly dunking, who cares about how many points he puts up in a real game, all he has to do is go out there and dunk and that's what he does best.

This is my east favourite

This is my east favourite event, as each year there is to much focus on the use of props, but I am really looking forward to this. The list is sick.

In this overall "West vs

In this overall "West vs East" thing that is happening for All Star Saturday night, the East is going to DESTROY the west in this competition.

East- James White, Gerald Green, Terrance Ross
West- Bledsoe, Manimal, Evans

Granted, it's still an individual event, and James White has already beaten Gerald Green in a Europe Dunk Contest, But I'm excited to see the 3 from the East dunk. I'm not gonna sleep on Bledsoe, though, cuz he's got some creativity as well

Good group of guys to dunk,

Good group of guys to dunk, Green, and White can still put on a show, Evans won it last year, and I'll be interested to see what Bledsoe and Ross will bring to the table. Wayyyyy better than Derrick Williams, Evans, Budinger, and George

All I can say is

All I can say is congratulations to the NBA, they are really putting an effort into improving the dunk contest and putting on a good show. I respect all of the competitors in this competition, but c'mon man, James White and Gerald Green are going to put on a show for NBA fans, this is the most excited i've been IN years. I'm so ready!!

Hopefully, James White still

Hopefully, James White still has the between the leg dunk from the free throw in him, because that was 4 or 5 yrs ago when I last saw him do it.

Aiight, so I summoned the

Aiight, so I summoned the ghost of Len Bias (rip) just now, and this dude already gave me the low-down on how things play out (we tight like that).

"quote this"

1. James White - There's gonna be some nasty picture of him -- like mid-key, head above the rim with the ball between the legs type ish -- that's gonna make Dwight in a cape seem awfully forgettable. White is 30 y/o, but he's not getting the burn of most players that age. He's ripe yo.

2. Eric Bledsoe - Arm in the rim? Gonna be some love given to the little guy in this one. Also since Lebron loves the dude and the league is retarded enough to get him to vote (watch!), he's gonna get a 50 for a windmill or something meh. Mediocre in the first round but catches a couple nice ones n the finals.

3. Terrence Ross - Dude has mad extension on his things. Gonna put one down where he connects ball and foot like a slingshot. Unfortunately this is all in the first round, as he gets on some 360 east bay brainwaves and 0'fer's the finals.

4. Gerald Green - Now why isn't the guy who get's 50 worthy nastiness higher up? Well the reps high so he goes second last, before Evans the reigning champ. Unfortunately all thats left in this guys bag is jumping high. By then Mr. White will be trending on Twitter, and that whole "kiss the rim" ship will have sailed. 360 behind the back misses as a back up.

5. Kenneth Faried - Goes right after White. Had planned to go free-throw line. Does anyways. Nah.

6. Jeremy Evans - Brings out props. Booed out the building.

I remember being a senior in

I remember being a senior in high school watching James White in Flight in the college dunk contest as a Bearcat. He blew my mind and seven years later the world will finally know what hasn't been done in an NBA dunk contest.

That's a very good lineup for the dunk contest. All six guys have the potential to do some good dunks. I'm definitely looking forward to see what bledsoe, ross, green, white and faried have up their sleeves.

Hopefully Kenny Smith isn't announcing this year...I hated him talking the entire time. Just get Bobbito or Joe the Show from NBA Street to do it
