NBA All-Star Weekend has arrived in Orlando. The 2012 edition of the annual exhibition includes skills challenges, such as the Haier Shooting Stars event, the Taco Bell Skills Contest and the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest. Not to be forgotten, of course, is one of the most popular events every year, the Slam Dunk Contest.

The four participants in the Slam Dunk Contest are Chase Budinger of the Houston Rockets, Paul George of the Indiana Pacers, Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks and Derrick Williams of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
