Kevin Durant said on U-Stream Wednesday that he plans on participating in the dunk contest at next year's All-Star Weekend.

"I know I got some dunks that I coulda did better than what those guys did," he said about last year's contest. Hopefully he keeps his word and is in next year. http://www.dailythunder.com/2010/05/kevin-durant-says-hes-in-for-next-years-dunk-contest/

Lets hope he actual is in it unlike another certain superstar. ;)

Now that we gotta superstar... maybe lebron will join. But I really don't know how well of a dunker Kevin is. Not many of his dunks this year were crazy.

Not strong enough but we'll see how he does. LeBron said he would be in it though and that didn't happen. Not sure if this is legit.

Durant will participate for his fans unlike a certain superstar playing his last game as a member of his first team.

It would be nice to see a superstar wing in the dunk contest.

Haven't seen anything special from him as a dunker but he can't fare worse than any of this year's contestants. Just thinking about the pezzo di merda that was this year's dunk contest makes me wanna shoot the idiot that chose the field of contestants.

Of course he wasn't going to be in the dunk contest. He can dunk, and pretty well, but he isn't dunk contest material.

no really he can do better than this year... i can't even remember a dunk worth remembering this year... Only good one was DD off the backboard but that was only ok... i hate ppl saying it early and then flopping... say it near the contest so u actually get in

"I know I got some dunks that I coulda did better than what those guys did,"

^^I keep seeing this quote. That is not committing him to being in the contest. He's not going to end up doing it. He's just saying that he could have outdone the guys this year. And I'm sure that he could have.

it was a joke, he posted it on his twitter

There should definitely be a Thunder player in next year's dunk contest, but we all know THAT guy is Russell Westbrook. I think KD was probably joking around, but he's got a lot of pull now, so I wouldn't put it past him to push for a spot to get Russ in.

hope durant's smart enough to actually do it. lebron danced, durant followed. lebron choked, lebron tried to get everyone's attention by saying he's dunking in the allstar weekend, lebron also turned it over again and again. now durant, it's your turn to make a move, are you sure you want lebron's footsetps?

I don't see him as Dunk Contest type of dunker at all but hey you never know.

Let's hope future Chicago Bull Lebron James decides to participate as well. :D

If future New York Knick Lebron James wants to do the dunk contest next year....I'm all for it. Watch out, Kd.

Would Durant have a shot? I don't think his hang time is any special, but the kid is creative. Who knows.

I don't think he'll be that good but at least he's showing interest and giving it a chance....unlike Lebron....that piece of crap.

Please don't compare Durant to Lebron. KD is nothing like that guy. He's a humble player that only cares about playing basketball. Lebron is nothing more than "lights and camera". Kevin Durant could care less if the spotlight is on him as long as he is the best player he can be and his team wins. He made a little joke, that's all. Lebron came out last year and acted like he needed to be in it to make it great and then he chickened out. KD simply made a statement joking around. It's not the same thing. He'll never follow in Lebrons footsteps, except for winning an MVP....other than that, he's gonna be better than Lebron ever was, and he's gonna achieve something that Lebron never will.
