Meanwhile Wizards' guard Bradley Beal, Thunder's Paul George, Raptors' Kyle Lowry, Miami's Wayne Ellington, Suns' Devin Booker & L.A.'s Tobias Harris will fill out the rest of the participants. On Friday evening before the Lakers' contest against the Brooklyn Nets, Nance Jr. showed up in a shirt with his father's image printed on it, who was the first ever NBA Slam Dunk Contest victor back in 1984 as a member of the Phoenix Suns. Gordon put up three ideal scores in that contest, and one dunk he had over the Magic mascot Stuff the Magic Dragon was one of the most unbelievable dunks we've ever seen.

Like Gordon, Oladipo put together a terrific dunk contest - in 2015 - but finished as the runner-up to LaVine. It's resulted in Oladipo being selected to his first All-Star Game, so he'll get two chances on All-Star Weekend to show off his talents.

Just like the case with most popular Internet videos, Lockler's account was gotten decidedly and adversely. But there are probably several weeks left of increasing flu activity this season, she warned.

Gordon has a lot more confidence on the floor these days and he'll hope to translate that in the dunk contest at Staples Center and finally get his hands on the award he craves.

The musical lineup for the Adidas #747WarehouseSt NBA All-Star event has been announced and it's looking pretty good.

Nintendo Switch online service will arrive this September
Like the Xbox Live and the PS Plus subscriptions, getting the Switch Online will guarantee players free games every month. That being the case, Nintendo Switch Online should cost $19.99 a year (or $3.99 a month if you prefer).

But the Lakers forward is an accomplished dunker in his own right, and in his third season has already earned a reputation for putting opponents on posters.
