Knicks' Obi Toppin contemplating NBA Dunk Contest

Knicks' Obi Toppin contemplating NBA Dunk Contest

New York Knicks rookie Obi Toppin expressed interest in competing in the NBA's Slam Dunk Contest, should it be held at this year's All-Star Game.

“The Dunk Contest, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see,’’ said Toppin. “I don’t want to just give you all answers, but hopefully I might be able to be there. Maybe not. So we’re just going to have to wait and see.’’

ANALYSIS: Toppin has yet to make an impact with the Knicks, averaging 12.0 minutes per game as he has battled some minor injuries this season. Toppin's high-flying athleticism helped create some exciting highlights at Dayton during his college career. If the Dunk Contest were to occur, Toppin would make for a strong candidate.
