Who Should Be in the NBA Dunk Contest?

The NBA Dunk Contest has lost its "swagger" since Vince Carter owned the show in 2000. Since then, it has been a show merely to entertain the crowd until the All-Star Game itself.

That isn't to say the NBA doesn't have good dunking talent, they just fail to choose the right dunkers for the contest.

Michael Jordan, Spud Webb, Vince Carter, Dr. J and Dominique Wilkins truly defined the dunk contest back in the day and the NBA needs to realize that the contest has lost its flare.

I am here to tell you what dunkers should be in the Dunk Contest this year and why.

1. Lebron James—Cleveland Cavaliers

He's all about the show and I can't deny that. At times it appears Lebron will do anything for attention, but the man can dunk.

He is arguably the most thunderous dunker in the league and has the physique to do just about anything. Lebron said last year during All-Star festivities he would like to be a part of this year's dunk contest and I hope if given the opportunity to, he accepts.

For the NBA, it will draw a big crowd because of his popularity and he is truly a gifted athlete and dunker.
