Nate Robinson, Gerald Wallace Among NBA Dunk Contest Participants

We already knew that the winner of a 'Dunk-In' between DeMar DeRozan and Eric Gordon would be one of the participants. We are also fairly certain that Gordon, while a great player, could get slaughtered by a very confident DeRozan in this 'Dunk-In.' The winner now knows who they will be up against as the NBA has announced the contestants for the 2010 Dunk Contest during All Star Weekend in Dallas next month: Shannon Brown, Gerald Wallace (BUZZSAW) and defending champion and Dunk Contest veteran, Nate Robinson, who won last year with his Kryptonate dunk over Dwight Howard.



Even though the dunks could still be awesome (especially from Gerald Wallace BUZZSAW), this is a real downgrade in the potential star power for the event after the buzz that LeBron James, Josh Smith and Howard would join Robinson in the field.
