NBA All-Star Weekend: Updated Slam Dunk Contest Odds

The folks over at Bovada have released their most recent odds for each of the events during All-Star Weekend and they were kind enough to send those odds over.

The competition features a star-studded cast this year led by Indiana Pacers’ swingman Paul George. George has developed into one of the game’s elite players and is probably 0nly behind LeBron James of the Miami Heat and Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder as far as the MVP race goes. He is an elite athlete and has been installed as the favorite to Dunker of the Night.

Last year’s winner was Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors. Ross wore the jersey of former Slam Dunk Champion Vince Carter, who put on the greatest performance in the history of the event.

Washington Wizards’ point guard John Wall and Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard, who is in every event Saturday night, have become elite players at their positions and deserving All-Stars.

Golden State Warriors’ forward Harrison Barnes was a lottery pick in 2012 while Sacramento Kings’ guard Ben McLemore was taken in the 2013 lottery.

All four of those players have outstanding athletic ability.
