Jalen Green to participate in Slam Dunk contest


The cast for the Slam Dunk competition in NBA All-Star Weekend at Cleveland has
been named.
Filipino-American and Houston Rockets’ 2021 second overall pick Jalen Green
accepted the invitation alongside Cole Anthony of the Orlando Magic, Juan Toscano-
Anderson of the Golden State Warriors and Obi Toppin of the New York Knicks.
Among the mentioned names, Green is already the favorite to win the event as he
already displayed his insane leaping ability and his creativity since his high school days.
Hearing the news, Filipino are on a frenzy to support Green as they hope to witness the
first-ever Filipino bloodline to be crowned Slam Dunk King.
However, it will not be easy for him as his fellow competitors are sure to bring out their
A+ game in dunking.
Green, Anthony and Toscano-Anderson have some of this season’s best poster slams
while Toppin separated himself with his two in-game in between legs jam.
