Jeremy Evans looks to defend his title and make history by becoming just the sixth player in the NBA to win multiple dunk contests. Evans is actually the sixth player in Jazz history to participate in a dunk contest, but the first Jazz player to ever be crowned champion. “It is very exciting to have the opportunity to participate, not just for the first time, but to be able to go back for a second time,” said Jeremy Evans. “I want to top what I did last year and come out and try to win it again.” (Utah Jazz Official Website)
