The point guard sat down with House of Highlights Tuesday night to discuss a wide range of topics, including the All-Star Weekend event. Unfortunately, he said he wouldn't compete in the dunk contest.
This is a bit of a disappointment because he has shown in the past he can certainly throw it down:
Ball had a rough second season in the NBA, averaging 9.9 points and 5.4 assists across 47 games before injuries ended his year early. All of these numbers represented a drop-off from his rookie season, which already failed to reach expectations as the No. 2 overall draft pick.
However, he is still one of the most well-known young players in the league. He would likely bring some creativity and excitement to the dunk contest, but fans will once again be left wanting more.
