Last year, Orlando Magic Center Dwight Howard had everybody on their feet, with his rendition of the “Superman” dunk.
Tonight, Dwight Howard [-150] is the Sports Odds favorite to win it again, as he’s back to defend his title against: former NBA Slam Dunk Contest winner Nate Robinson [+350] of the New York Knicks, J.R. Smith [+350] of the Denver Nuggets, and first year man Rudy Fernandez [+500] of the Portland Trail Blazers.
The question in everyone’s mind is what can Dwight Howard do to top what he did last year? Or is it even possible to top what happened last season in New Orleans? The funny part is, that he didn’t even actually dunk the ball through; he just sort of threw it through the rim! However the judges and the crowd loved it so much, such a technicality was forgiven. It will be interesting to see what the big man has in store for tonight, but has given a hint: he loves “Dr. J”.
