2008 Sprite Slam Dunk Champion Dwight Howard is back to defend his crown, and if being up against Rudy Gay and Nate Robinson wasn't tough enough for him, now YOU will pick his final challenger. For the first time ever YOU get to decide who will advance to compete as the 4th dunker in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest at NBA All-Star 2009 in Phoenix!
You could win a grand prize trip to 2009 NBA-All Star in Phoenix!

wow this dunk contest is gonna really suck. the only reason i might watch is to see nasty nate, even if it does take him 10 tries. and im sorry, dwight howard is good and all, but i dont want to see 7 footers or close to em in the dunk contest. its just not exciting for me.

and theres no option to vote lebron?

I can't believe that Nate is back in the dunk contest.

I'm gonna vote for Rudy because his commercial was hilarious.

Sorry guys but its gonna be the white guy. Joe Alexander should definitely be in it.

This will be the my favorite dunk contest if Alexander makes it.

I'll take Alexander, though I don't see any of them winning it.

Don't get ahead of yourself buddy...I know Trevor can jump but I can assure you he doesn't jump higher than any of those guys...Rudy has insane hops, D-Howard probably jumps higher than any big man in the game now-maybe in history, and Nate--pound for pound or should I say height for height jumps higher than both of them--probably anyone for that matter...I wouldn't put my money on Trevor :eyebrow:

You can only be in the dunk contest if your in your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year in the NBA or if you are the defending slam dunk champion(Dwight Howard this year).

Why aren't Al Thornton or Eric Gordon in it? Rudy Gay sucked in it last year, why is he in it again?

I took Rudy Fernandez. IMO he deserves it the most out of all those guys, so that's why he got my vote. He's having the best year.

My vote went to Westbrook, the man can jump. I'm looking forward to watch again this year but I'll never watch a dunk contest again if David Stern rigs it for Nate Robinson again. That was a disgrace a few years ago.

My vote goes for Rudy.

Unlike past dunk contests, I'll actually be looking forward to watch this one.

joe alexander better win. he was the second best athlete in last year's draft. next to rose, who should have been in it.

No lie, Joe Alexander has some hops, dude hits the rim with his head with ease. But I don't think he'll go the contest. IMO, its going to be Westbrook, Rudy Fernandez is nice but I haven't seen anything from him that makes me think he will be a great contest dunker.

Why are we not voting for the white man.. Supposedly they say white men cant jump. Lets prove em wrong. EVERYBODY VOTE FOR JOE ALEXANDER

why did they bring back Gay and Robnson?

theyve been in the legue for like 4 years

they should only bring back the champ from last year and people who have only been in the leauge for like 3 years

I was hoping Dwight Howard, Jamario Moon, Joe Alexander and Nick Young

I wanna see Joe Alexander in it. I don't mind seeing this in the contest.
