I am not going to sugarcoat this, I absolutely loathe the dunk contest and have so for about 6 years now. ¬†Everything about it is fake and the complete opposite of the contests in the late eighties and nineties which were what I grew up watching. ¬†Here is to hoping they don’t suck again this year. Paul George, John Wall, Damian Lillard, Ben McLemore, Harrison Barnes, and defending dunk champion Terrence Ross are the 6 players who will be participating in the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Contest according to Hoop MixTape.

All in all, that is not a bad field.
