I’m excited and proud to be able to represent our fans and this organization in the dunk contest. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, and it’s an honor to be considered as one of the game’s top dunkers, but in the meantime I’m just focusing on the other things that I need to do for my teammates and coaches to help us win.
