Durant Says No Thanks To Dunk Contest
Kevin Durant passed up a chance to take part in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend. The third-year forward wrote on his official Web site that he was offered a spot “but politely turned it down.”
“My agent came to me last week and asked me if I wanted to participate in the Slam Dunk Contest and I was like, ‘Nah.’ I’m just not a dunk contest dunker, you know what I mean? I don’t even do any good dunks in games. I can’t jump as high as those guys, either, so I’ll leave that up to the Rudy Gays and the Dwight Howards to show off in the dunk contest. I’ll pass on that.”
Durant went on to say he was honored to be asked but had to say no thank you.
“Besides,” Durant said, “I think it’s more fun to watch than to be in.”
