Nate Robinson May Skip Dunk Contest
Yes, you read the headline correctly. The reigning Slam Dunk Champion may have to sit out because of an injury.
A strained groin is something that can certainly affect the ability of a player to perform acrobatic dunks. Robinson hasn’t yet spoken, but in the coming days, it’s something to keep an eye on. If he’s unable to perform, should the league just allow both dunk-in participants to be in the main contest? Or should they appoint someone new in his place?
