2011 NBA Dunk Contest: Four players have entered – Blake Griffin of the Clippers, JaVale McGee of the Wizards, Brandon Jennings (?!?) of the Bucks and Serge Ibaka of the Thunder. Jennings could be the most creative … guard on the fast break with the basketball, but dunker? He’s barely 6-foot-1. Griffin obviously would be the overwhelming favorite, but Ibaka plays like he’s got springs in his shoes, too. McGee probably has the coolest nickname (assuming Jennings no longer goes by “Young Money”) in the contest – “JaValevator”. [Times]
That’s about right.
Productive pool talk.
Tough summer for big names at ESPN.
Major league talent.
A mystery as old as time.
Also: Solid stuff on Roc Nation in here.
