Report: Blake Griffin to Highlight Dunk Contest Field

by January 05, 2011

Numerous media reports place Griffin in this year‘s Dunk Contest, along with a bunch of other guys no one really cares about in such an exhibition (Brandon Jennings, really?): “Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who has become must-see TV because of his slam dunks, will be in the NBA’s slam dunk contest, sources said Tuesday night. Joining Griffin will be Washington Wizards 7-foot centerJaVale McGee, Oklahoma City Thunder 6-10 forward Serge Ibaka and Milwaukee Bucks 6-1 guard Brandon Jennings, sources said. Jennings, who attended Dominguez High in Compton before he finished his high school career at Oak Hill Academy, has a broken right foot and is expected to be out four to six weeks, but he is expected to be healthy for All-Star weekend.”
