Rumor: Andrew Wiggins’ father says son will compete in All-Star Dunk Contest


This is far, far from official… but we pretty much all knew that the NBA was going to invite high flying No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins to the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest. So this tweet from Hoopshype Canada seems very realistic.

For the record, the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest will take place Saturday night, Feb. 14, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. (Friday and Saturday night’s events are in Brooklyn, only Sunday’s game itself is at MSG). His teammate Zach LaVine should be in the mix with him for the Dunk Contest. With those two it will be a real show.

Why is it good Wiggins is in the Dunk Contest? Glad you asked.
