2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest: Time, TV schedule and participants

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

The always entertaining Slam Dunk Contest features a wide field with defending champion Jeremy Evans aiming to take the title home for the second straight year.

The Slam Dunk Contest is getting tinkered with a little bit on All-Star Weekend, but the gist of it remains the same -- monster, elaborate and sometimes ridiculous dunks galore.

Much of the rules are staying the same, but the difference this year is that there the field has six players in it, three from the Eastern Conference and three from the Western Conference. Like previous years, judges determine the initial rounds with the voting public deciding the champion.


The field boasts some recent big names as well as some older veterans. 2012 champion Jeremy Evans will be joined by Los Angeles Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe and Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried. Evans won last year after jumping over teammate Gordon Hayward.

On the Eastern Conference side, Indiana Pacers guard and 2007 champion Gerald Green highlights the veterans of the field. He is joined by New York Knicks guard James White, who is no stranger to dunk contests himself, finishing second in the 2001 McDonald's High School Slam Dunk Contest. Rookie Toronto Raptors forward Terrence Ross rounds out the field.

TV coverage of the All-Star festivities begin at 8:30 p.m. ET on TNT. The Slam Dunk Contest is the final of the four events on Saturday.
