Denver Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried has been selected to take part in the Sprite Slam Dunk competition in Houston on February 16.
Faried joins defending champion Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz and Eric Bledsoe of the Los Angeles Clippers on the Western Conference team. They will compete against Gerald Green of the Indiana Pacers, Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors and James White of the New York Knicks.
This is probably one of the most well-rounded group of dunk contestants in some quite time; this is definitely James White’s contest to lose, but Ross, Green, and Faried will give some semblance of competition.
Check out this old footage of Green and White (who is a dunking legend in the basketball community).
