This year's Slam Dunk Contest to have a "Dunk-In" qualifying round

1/14/10 in NBA   |   redsox1002003   |   881 respect

 During halftime of the rookie/sophomore game, a "dunk-in" will be held to determine who gets the fourth and final spot in the dunk contest. I think this is a fantastic idea, as we get to see more dunking, and it gives people a reason to watch (at least a half) of the meaningless rookie/sophomore game. The participants will be announced on January 18th.

UPDATE: The participants of the "Dunk-In" will be Los Angeles Clippers G Eric Gordon and Toronto Raptors F Demar DeRosen.
