Sprite Slam Dunk Contestants Announced: Nate Robinson, Shannon Brown, Gerald Wallace and Winner of Dunk-InIt’s all in the title, folks.  With rumours flying everywhere, nobody was quite sure who would be taking part in this year’s Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.  At midday today, though, the smoke cleared as three names were released: Nate Robinson, Shannon Brown and Gerald Wallace.  The fourth contestant will be either DeMar DeRozan or Eric Gordon, who will compete for the last spot in the inaugural Dunk-In, to be held at halftime of the Rookie Challenge.

So, what do you think of the contestants this year?  Could Nate Robinson repeat as champion?  Will the springy Gerald Wallace do something special?  Can Shannon Brown live up to the hype?  Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
