Last week, Andrew Wiggins' father Mitchell revealed that his son would compete in the 2015 Slam Dunk Contest on Feb. 14 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. That report alone should get more NBA fans interested in checking out this year's contest following a string of disappointing competitions. Now, things have gotten just a little more interesting.
According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo and Orlando's Victor Oladipo have committed to participating in the 2015 Slam Dunk Contest while the Nets' Mason Plumlee and Wiggins' Minnesota Timberwolves teammate, Zach LaVine, will reportedly also be a part of the competition.
LaVine, Plumlee, Oladipo, The Greek Freak and Wiggins sounds like a pretty incredible line-up. But is it enough to get you to tune in live and potentially ruin your relationship? Guess we will find out—about both things—soon enough.
