We're really happy to hear the news that James 'Flight' White has been selected to be in the 2013 NBA Sprite Slam Dunk Contest!
People have been harassing the league to make this happen, and now, we know that we're in for something truly special during the 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend.
The competition will be taking on a Eastern Conference vs Western Conference format.
In the Western Conference there will be:
- Jeremy Evans, Utah Jazz (2012 Dunk Contest Champion)
- Eric Bledsoe, LA Clippers
- Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets
In the Eastern Conference we have:
- Gerald Green, Indiana Pacers
- Terrence Ross, Toronto Raptors
- James White, New York Knicks
White has been making waves on the sneaker scene with the K1X Anti Gravity kicks, becoming the newest NBA edition to the K1X stable. No doubt he'll be wearing a fresh pair for the competition.
