Winning option: Sources with knowledge of the league's plans told ESPN.com that Knicks rookie Shumpert -- one of four dunk-contest entrants alongside Houston Rockets forward Chase Budinger, Indiana Pacers swingman Paul George and Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Derrick Williams -- will be enlisting Lin to "assist" him in a manner similar to the help 2011 champion Blake Griffin got from then-Los Angeles Clippers teammate Baron Davis.

Predictions

Background

What: Sprite Slam Dunk Contest
When: Feb. 25, 8:30 p.m. ET (4th event)
Where: Amway Center
TV: All-Star Saturday Night coverage starts at 8 p.m. ET on TNT
The Sprite Slam Dunk Contest is the centerpiece of All-Star Saturday Night and the one of the most anticipated events of the season.

This year, four dunkers will have the unenviable task of trying to surpass last year's epic Blake Griffin performance when he brought the house down by dunking over a car.

On the Dan Patrick Radio show on Feb. 13th, Blake Griffin indicated he had not yet decided if he would participate in this year's slam dunk contest.
