JaVale Is Skipping the Dunk Contest

On Monday, the dunk contest was on JaVale McGee’s mind, and he looked to his Twitter fans for some inspiration.

Apparently he wasn’t happy with the answers he got. This year’s dunk contest field has been announced and JaVale’s name is not on the list.

After last year’s incredible showing by JaVale, we’re a little disappointed that we won’t get to see a repeat performance. Besides, we would have liked to see some of these fan suggestions happen.

We think Betty White might have actually done it.
