James White Reportedly in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest

Ask, and you shall receive. According to the NY Post, James White has been added to the NBA Slam Dunk Contest field (thought it won’t be confirmed until tonight‘s TNT broadcast.) Rejoice, and please, do get familiar … : “League source says #Knicks swingman James White already has been informed he’s in the Slam-Dunk competition. Won’t be official until 7 p.m.” […] Last night in Washington, White wouldn’t confirm he was named, but told said regarding the possibility, ‘It’s fun for the fans – an opportunity to show your talents. It will be fun.’ White gave his Knicks teammates a preview last week at Temple University after practice when he took off from the free-throw line and leapt all the way to the rim. […] Ironically, White’s role with the Knicks is as a defensive swingman and rarely has he dunked in games. ‘I want the two points,’’ White said last night. “If I have an opportunity to dunk, I’ll do it.'”
