    Oh wow, i thought for sure they were leaving him off. Great news! Go get em Paul! Dunk on Hibbert. Since Roy is an All Star that should add some effect as well as being ya know, 7'2.

    Even Vince in his prime couldn't do that dunk PG does in that video. If the contest is fair at all, PG should wax those chumps. But it won't be, and Shumpert will win no matter what he trots out there.

    Fan voting? Just give it to Shumpert. Why bother with the contest?

    Yao Ming needs to un-retire and enter the contest. He could win without even setting foot on the floor.

    Yeah Shump has this one in the bag unless he just flat out misses one of his dunks and even then they'll advance him into another round. I'll be shocked if anyone else wins besides him and Lin, it's bs like that that makes the dunk contest an absolute joke.
    My hope is that he uses Lin in the first round only, and PG beats him in the finals. Or he tries to save Lin for the finals and doesn't make it, although I doubt that happens since people will vote for him even if he misses just so they can see Lin in the finals.

    I'm guessing Shumpert wins by about 1.3 billion votes.

    There's only one round guys. Each guy gets 3 dunks, then fans vote. Then they hand Iman Shumpert the trophy and he answers 45 seconds of Jeremy Lin questions.

    I honestly can't say i've seen a spectacular Shumpert dunk this season. Dude isn't even the best dunker on his team.

    I'd love to see the PG dunk from the video, dunking over Hibbert, and then some sort of tribute to Darnell!

    They might as well have left Shumpert out and just given the spot directly to Lin. Why not also put him in the 3 pts contest, point guard challenge, in the rookie game, the big game, doing the announcing, serving hot dogs outside the arena, handling valet parking, showing people to their seats, etc.?

    This is just getting ****ing ridiculous. Yes, the kid can play. So, suddenly the whole ****ing NBA revolves around him? Just give him the MVP trophy already. /end rant

    Yeah, the media's gonna end up making me hate Lin like Tebow. Take a great story (except Lin's is a lot better) about a great kid and just pound the damn thing into the ground.

    Thanks for the clarification. Guess I was just making an assumption. Yeah with this format it's going to take missed dunks by Shumpert for him to not win, and even that may not be enough.

    Exactly. I don't want to hate Tebow but I can't help it. Lin is getting there already too.

    Yip one round with all fan voting.

    I quit watching all-star weekend a long time ago for a reason. I'll probably tune in to watch Paul but I'll just walk away mad when Lin wins the dunk contest. (no that was not a typo)

    I don't think anybody is going to make me hate Lin, one of the reasons why I don't like Tebow is because I think he is fake and because he is not a good player, Lin to me is going to at least be a decent starting PG in the NBA and he looks legit.

    Congrats to Paul. I think that All-Star break can't come soon enough not only for us fans but also our Pacers roster.

    Only way to counteract this is for Paul to go out and get Tim Tebow to throw him a horribly inaccurate pass, Paul catches it, dunks it while jumping over Yao Ming. Then they all 3 Tebow under the basket. Paul George wins.

    I think the dunk contest will come down to Paul George (http://twitvid.com/DZSLP) and Iman Shumpert (http://tinyurl.com/6qr478e). Watch those videos.

    I'm happy for Paul, but count me as just a little bitter that he's spending so much time being happy about this on twitter while we are in the midst of a 5 game losing streak. I'd like a little more focus on tonight's game please, especially with Paul's lackadaisical play during this streak.

    This x1000. We need a W against NJ more than we need a dunk contest trophy from PG.

    You know his last name is Lin, right? Ah....stereotypes.

    i totally agree with you.... it's fine that he's happy but the team's success should be more imporant. Not saying he cares more about all star weekend but his comments aren't showing so.

    And he's said himself that he's got some things up his sleeve, something that Vince Carter said at the beginning of the 2000 dunk contest,

    Also something that every dunker has said before every dunk contest.

    I don't really know how creative he is, but Chase Budinger can JUMP. He's far from "just some white guy."
    I was going to rant on this too.

    He was a bad *** volleyball star too. He's like Dunleavy if Dunleavy had insane hops and a will to block shots.

    I don't think of him as a showy dunker type, but it won't be for lack of vertical game.

    But it's obvious from a mile away. Darn.
