Terrence Williams in the Slam Dunk Contest? Everyone knows this should happen. T-Will is most-definitely one of the top-5 most explosive, stylistic dunkers in the league (as a rookie) excluding the guys that refuse to particpate anymore or ever for whaever reason – like LeBron, Josh Smith, Dwayne Wade or Dwight Howard. Anyone that followed Louisville the last 4 years knows that Terrence Williams can dunk with the best around. He originally was excluded from both the Rookie/Sophomore game & Dunk-Off. More than likely coming from how pathetic the New Jersey Nets are playing this season. The Nets are on pace to tie the worst record in the history of the NBA currently at 4-46.
However, last night on his Twitter ( @TheRealTWill ) he said he would be “finding out” if he was getting into the dunk contest today. From around 9PM last night….
Finding out tomorrow if I’m in the dunking contest
T-Will being T-Will went on to ask people for suggestions on dunks he could throw into his reportoire in 140 characters or less. This year’s dunk contest has 5 contestants so far – defending champion Nate Robinson of the Knicks, Shannon Brown of the Lakers, and Gerald Wallace of the Bobcats. A new wrinkle “dunk-off” for the 4th and final spot is slated to happen before the All-Star Saturday night tradition between Eric Gordon of the Clippers and DeMar DeRozan of the Raptors. However, both Wallace and DeRozan are nursing injuries and have missed some time in the last week and could decide to sit out this weekend’s festivities. T-Will could be right there to fill in for an injured competitor.
Should have an answer by tonight or tomorrow morning so stay tuned.
