Whatever dunks Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe has planned for Saturday night’s slam dunk contest at All-Star weekend in Houston, he’s keeping them a secret. “I know my first two dunks,” he said, “but I can’t tell you. You’ll just have to see.”
Bledsoe is one of six players chosen to participate in the popular event, which this year will be held under a new format, Western Conference vs. Eastern Conference, and will raise money for charity. He’s teamed with Denver’s Kenneth Faried and Utah’s Jeremy Evans, last year’s winner, against the Eastern Conference’s Gerald Green of Indiana, Terrence Ross of Toronto and James White of New York.
