It’s a minor guarantee, but it’s still a guarantee. And personally, I wouldn’t vote against him. Especially because he’s supposedly got a super dunk on reserve that might make the world explode. From ESPN:
“Whatever I do is going to be new. It’s not going to be seen in the NBA dunk contest,” he said. “You’ve seen it maybe on YouTube, but you haven’t seen it on the NBA stage. You’ve seen windmills. Everything they do has to be with gimmicks, which is what’s making it corny.” [...]
“I have a dream of doing something, but I can’t tell you what it is,” he said. “I told some guys and they were like, ‘Nah, you can’t do that.’ Then somebody else brought up another one, and that’s a good idea. The dunk I’m talking about is crazy. I don’t think nobody thought of that. If they did, they wouldn’t think they can do it. It’s not too difficult, but it’s crazy. Somebody actually has to help on that one.”
Well, now that I know he’s not planning on bringing any props or having any gimmicks, I’m hesitant to support James White in his dunk contest endeavors. DeMar DeRozan knows what I’m talking about. In this day and age, it’s props or bust, which is just terrible.
OK yeah, still pretty confident he can win this thing. Now all he has to do is actually be selected. Do the right thing, Dwyane Wade.
