The 2012 NBA Dunk contest does not have Blake Griffin car jumps, Dwight Howard Superman capes or Iman Shumpert jumping over Jeremy Lin curled up on his couch – which almost happened before Shump was replaced – but they do have ... Paul George, Derrick Williams, Chase Budinger and Jeremy Evans! Of those four guys, only two-maybe-three guys are recognizable to the casual fan.
Start time: All-Star Saturday Night begins at 8:30 EST, but the Dunk Contest will probably begin around 10:15-10:30
