JaVale McGee in the dunk contest!!!!!!!!

By Dan Steinberg


Four men representing four teams were granted spots in the NBA's dunk contest this week. But only one of the teams went with the full-on WE JUST WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD Web site splash page to honor the occasion. Hey, it's been tough sledding around here. You've got to find happiness where you can.

And really, I like what the Wizards did with this, creating a gallery of 23 McGee dunk images to honor the occasion. the Bucks and Clippers seemed to ignore the news of their players making it in, while the Thunder posted a news story.

Oh, and the Clippers decided to honor the occasion by going all Susan O'Malley on their fan base. This is a truly dreadful way to be greeted.

I read this story about an hour ago... I'm still trying to get excited about watching the Slam Dunk Contest. Sorry Mr. Leonsis, but at one point while trying I fell asleep.
