Contestants Announced For All-Star Dunk-In (The NBA Is Boring)

Remember when Chris Andersen had a disastrous NBA Slam Dunk Contest? Arguably the lowest point for the competition. Well, it's be after Feb. 12 of this year. That's when DeMar DeRozan and Eric Gordon will compete in something called the All-Star Dunk-In.

Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan and Clippers guard Eric Gordon will compete in the All-Star Slam Dunk-In competition at halftime of the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge on Friday, Feb. 12. The winner will advance to the All-Star Saturday Night Sprite Slam Dunk event.

DeRozan and Gordon will each get two dunks in the one-round dunk-in, with the player receiving the highest percentage of fan votes via NBA.com and SMS text messaging advancing to the dunk contest on All-Star Saturday.
