(Good morning. Thank you for your support of Daily Thunder. Pass the toast.)
Dunk contest participants will be announced relatively soon and by the way it sounds, LeBron is backing off his promise and Dwight Howard is going to pass the torch. And from an earlier interview, KryptoNate likely won’t be there either. Now we know Kevin Durant humbly bowed out, but if there is one guy I know I want to see, it’s Russell Westbrook. He almost got there last year through the fan vote, but the whole country of Spain rallied to get Rudy Fernandez there. Westbrook’s of course got crazy leaping ability and he dunks like he’s angry. And I’m sure he could employ the help of The Broingtons to come up with some good ideas. We know Serge Ibaka can cram like a king, but hear me now: Let Russell dunk.
