2) Who is missing from the dunk contest that could have reasonably been a part of it (the guys with lots to lose and little to gain, like Blake and LeBron, don’t count)?
Andrew: Other than Shannon Brown? (Seriously, stop laughing.) Nikola Pekovic. Nothing fancy, although if Pek wants to throwdown a 360 windmill, so much the better. The goal for Pek in the dunk contest would be to tear down the entire basket stanchion. Not break the "unbreakable" backboards. Not bend the rim. I want Pek to try to rip down the whole damn thing, then I want Ivan Johnson to emerge from under the structure and engage Pekovic in Mortal Kombat. If we’re going to have props, let’s go all the way with this.
