After judging one of the best dunk contests ever go down in Orlando last night he was asked again about participating in a contest.

“It’s not me,” he said Friday. “I’m not a dunk contest type of guy. I’m an in-game dunker. I kind of improvise during the game.”

Then he was asked what if the prize was a million dollars.

“Then I’d reconsider,” he said “Wouldn’t you?”

The answer is obviously yes and not only do I think a good majority of talented NBA players that can dunk well would participate but they would take the event much more seriously.

Some people might run with this and say these guys are already worth tens of millions to hundreds of millions, what’s another million.  Well, ask Antoine Walker or Allen Iverson if they could of used another million.
