Indiana Pacers Forward/Guard Gerald Green
Weight: 210 lbs.
Drafted by: Boston Celtics, 18th overall in 2005
Most famous for: 2007 NBA Slam Dunk Champion
Gerald Green brings a ton of experience into the 2013 Dunk Contest, having won both the 2005 McDonald’s All-American Slam Dunk Contest and the 2007 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Green also finished as the runner-up in the 2008 NBA Slam Dunk Contest and is best known for his “Cupcake Dunk”, which involved him dunking a ball while simultaneously blowing out a lit birthday cupcake resting on the top of the rim. Just like Jeremy Evans, Green will also look to make history by winning multiple dunk contests. “It’s an honor to represent the Pacers and Indiana and it’s also great to be trying to win it not only again, but this time in my hometown of Houston,” said Green. “I think it’s exciting for the Pacers that this is another way to recognize our team and the year we’re having.” (Pacers Official Website)
