2014 NBA Sprite Dunk Contest recap

Paul George is ready to give the dunk contest another try.
George became the sixth Pacers player to participate in the contest when he joined in the 2011-12 season. Following the event George had some interesting things to say.
"(Not to) take nothing away from the dunk contest, (but) it was a joke. I guess whoever had the biggest celebrity involved in their dunk was going to be the winner. I guess I should have tried to reach out to some people."
Last season Gerald Green represented the Pacers in the contest and did some strange cutting of the net routine. Had he finished the dunk would have been impressive, but Green couldn't complete the slam.
If George wins, he'd be the second Pacer to do so. Fred Jones won the competition back in 2004.
