Slam Dunk Contest 2013: Participants, start time, TV schedule and more

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The Knicks' James White is apart of Team Eastern Conference in All-Star Saturday night's headlining event, the Slam Dunk Contest.

All-Star Saturday night in the NBA is typically defined by its showcase event, the Slam Dunk Contest, which features a different format this year and an array of uber-athletic dunkers.

The six-man field is divided by Eastern and Western Conference affiliations, as each player gets one dunk in each of two rounds. The players from each conference with the highest total score will meet in the championship round, which is going to be decided in-part by fan votes cast on multiple social media platforms.

Jeremy Evans, the defending Slam Dunk champion from the Utah Jazz, will be representing the Western Conference, along with Los Angeles Clippers point guard Eric Bledsoe and Denver Nuggets hyper-energy forward Kenneth Faried. The Eastern Conference will counter with James White of the New York Knicks, Gerald Green of the Indiana Pacers and Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors.
