LeBron James Says He’ll be in the 2010 Slam Dunk Competition, Finally

Dwight Howard fixed the problem with the Slam Dunk Competition last year; he was a star and he competed. And he blew the people away. Instead of the coolest and most traditional event being left for nobodies like Chris “Birdman” Andersen and Jamario Moon, we finally had a superstar in the competition to give us something to be excited about — one who won last year and decided to defend his title. Howard was dethroned by Nate Robinson, but the bottom line is that the buzz and excitement for the event is back, thanks to Dwight’s Superman antics. And plenty of fans have no doubt been clamoring to see LeBron James finally compete in a dunk contest. Kobe’s done it and won one, Jason Richardson, Vince Carter, and some of the other freak athletes have too. It’s about time that LeBron takes his turn, and he said on Saturday night that he’ll finally compete next year in Dallas:

I’m glad LeBron’s finally taking it upon himself to participate. I really hope he doesn’t back out because this would provide a few lasting memories. Sure, winning a ring is the real focus, but tell me what NBA fan doesn’t have a fond memory of a dunk contest moment? How much more popular did Dwight become after he did his whole Superman thing? LeBron will have a chance to enhance his legacy and I’m glad he’s taking the opportunity to do so. Just don’t go Brett Favre on us. (fingers crossed)
