Carmelo Anthony hints at James White in NBA Dunk Contest

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

One of the best parts of the NBA All Star weekend is the dunk contest. But, for the dunk contest to be awesome, you need awesome contestants. James White would be awesome.

While there hasn't been any official announcement from the NBA yet, Carmelo Anthony suggested on Monday night that his New York Knicks teammate James White would participate in the NBA Dunk Contest in the upcoming All Star Weekend.

James "Flight" White is one of the most ridiculously athletic players in the league, but is a relative unknown due to his lack of playing time for the Knicks. A quick search on YouTube will provide plenty of evidence to be convinced that this guy should absolutely be in the dunk contest.

Some of the things White can do with a basketball while floating through the air are just unbelievable.

Here's a video of White competing in the dunk contest back when he was in college at Cincinnati.

I think it's pretty fair to say that we all want to see James White competing in Houston at the NBA Dunk Contest.
