Arrow Dunk-In to determine 4th spot in slam dunk contest

Quote:
NEW YORK (AP)—The final contestant in the slam dunk competition will have to earn his way in.

The NBA announced Wednesday the creation of the “All-Star Slam Dunk-In” to determine the fourth contestant in the event.

Two players will compete at halftime of the rookie challenge on Friday, Feb. 12. The winner, chosen by votes on NBA.com or through text messaging, will claim a spot in the marquee event of All-Star Saturday night, to be held this year in Dallas.

The dunk-in participants will be announced Thursday night during TNT’s pregame coverage.

during the rookie game huh? DeMar? He did say he could beat even LeBron.
That's implicitly solliciting a spot. LeBron v DeMar dunk-in..?

I like the idea...although, it may limit creativity -someone may use their main attraction dunk just to gain entrance to the actual comp.

Yeah, but the dunk contest has been fairly lame since VC's extravaganza. And they need fresh ideas to promote it...Do you remember the dunk wheel? This is certainly a better idea than the dunk wheel.

It's the best part of all-star weekend IMO. The all-star game is dull -same guys over and over...The ''competitions'' are redundant.

The rookie game gives you a chance to peep seldom showcased talents. The advent of new, exciting talent.

It should be 3 team flight brothers and 3 NBA dunkers. Their best 3 and say, Lebron Iggy and James White. If they really wanted to bring back the dunk contest.

More advertising for sprite therefore more money for the NBA.

Soon there will be a skills compitition just to enter the skills compitition, and a training camp for celebrities before the celebrity game.

A reality show is coming soon book it.
