After weeks of speculating whether Russell Westbrook would compete or hoping that someone could verbally or financially convince LeBron James to give it a shot, we finally have a list of the competitors who will compete in the 2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest on February 16. Check 'em out below.

  • James White, New York Knicks
  • Gerald Green, Indiana Pacers
  • Terrence Ross, Toronto Raptors
  • Jeremy Evans, Utah Jazz (defending champion)
  • Eric Bledsoe, Los Angeles Clippers
  • Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets 

Call us crazy, but judging from the competitors at first glance, we actually think that this year's contest could actually be a good one. Maybe it's the eternal optimist in us. Or, possibly it's that nothing could be worse than what the NBA gave us last year.
