John Wall Plans to Enter the NBA Dunk Contest

At a promotional event for his new sneaker, John Wall tells I am a GM that he has plans on entering the League’s Dunk Contest very soon: “Question: I’ve seen in a lot of the pickup and charity games such as Chris Paul’s that you’ve put up some crazy dunks. Have you considered entering the dunk contest?’ John Wall: ‘Yeah I’m thinking about it, maybe this year or next year I’ll probably enter the dunk contest.”

    Him, Westbrook, Iman Shumpert and DD.

    Maybe Kenny Smith can be his hype man and bring out a marching band while riding on an elephant when he does a basic one hand dunk.

  • DieselMechanic

    Wall got some stuff but I don’t think he is on THAT level. He’ll compete tho. Way better than Jennings.

    Do it!
    @RDeahn. the elephant part is a must! LOL

  • EtheKnickFan

  • BlackStar

    @ Max – Co sign on Iman Shumpert. That young man gets bizzy!

    Why even bother?
    DeRozan will win every dunk contest EVAR!!!

  • Van CityBBALL

    although i dont really want him in next/ next-next year Blake Griff needs to be in next year to defend his title, followed by JWall, deMar, and josh selby… i would say westbrooke > selby but westbrooke is more of a power dunker which i can respect..

  • robb

    @angus Lebron himself has said he’s not creative enough to participate, at least he’s being honest.

    kill the dunk contest for a few years and bring it back. it really sucks now. not even john wall could save it.

    Derozan can win it if they dont screw him.

    I want Shannon Brown in the dunk contest only doing Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter dunk contest dunks. If he does he wins easy. BOOK IT!!

    DeRozan should have won two years in a row. But Wall can get up and Iman Shumpert is insane. The three of them against Blake Griffin? That would be tight.

    Honestly, there’s only so much you can do with dunking, you can change the participants. I wanna see Guy Dupay, Kenny Dobbs, and Kadour Ziani go against NBA players for cred. Vince Carter destroyed the dunk contest anyway. So it’s over really.

  • CubicleWorker

    The alley oop off the side of the backboard by DD last year might just be the most technical dunk ever

  • Hobbes

    Cosign Ray: Difference between MJ and LBJ is Mike can only accept wins and Bron afraid to lose. Even Kobe quit in playoff against Suns. But he’s still No.2 best player in NBA behind Zee Germans. Any list not starting Dirk as NO.1 is a joke. IMO

    Blakes gonna be the dunk champ every year he enters not really sure John Walls trying to see him. Seems like that boy DeRozan got something to prove though.

  • Youngindy21

    Get off that dude Derozan’s sack. Paul George would slaughter him in a Dunk Contest. It wouldn’t even be a contest. I think a dunk contest w/ Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon, Paul George, and Lebron James would be epic.
