Victor Oladipo To Participate In All-Star Slam Dunk Contest

NBA All Star Game

Glenn Robinson III won last year's Slam Dunk Contest in New Orleans.

Oladipo previously competed in the 2015 Slam Dunk Contest in NY as a member of the Orlando Magic, where he was runner-up to Minnesota's Zach LaVine.

Joining Smith in the competition will be Orlando's Aaron Gordon, Indiana's Victor Oladipo and Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr.

NZ medal-less, Fiji triumph at inaugural Hamilton 7's
Player of the Final was Fijian flyer Alasio Sovita Naduva who scored three of Fiji's tries in the four tries to three-try victory. With the clock winding down Australia went on one last attack before they awarded a penalty in front of New Zealand's polls.

The 2016 dunk contest in Toronto a year earlier, for example, was, excuse my language, !*$@!@* incredible.

So it can be a bit of a coin flip, and it might not be until the first or second round gets underway when we know what kind of show we'll be in store for. I spent a lot of time growing up in the Bay (Area).

All four competitors get two dunks in the first round. The dunk contest takes place the following evening, with the All-Star game wrapping up the weekend of events on Sunday, February 18. Given the constant comparison to his pops, one would expect Nance, Jr.to show some sort of homage to the elder Nance.

It's been a long wait but we finally have official confirmation from the National Basketball Association ...

Leading up to the 2017 NBA Draft, one of the terms you'd often hear to describe point guard Dennis Smith Jr. was "future dunk contest victor". My early pick to win it all, Smith Jr. can fly. But Saturday has the dunk contest, and memories of a good dunk contest will outlast anything else.

In addition to the two 15-year-olds, they were described as a 30-year-old woman, an 11-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. According to the Associated Press, he was in critical condition but he has now but upgraded to stable.

He is the ninth Pacers player to participate in the Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend (Darnell Hillman won a season-long dunk competition over the course of the 1976-77 season).
