Durant Won't Participate in Dunk Contest

Kevin Durant thinks he's a "high-flyer," and it means that he won't participate in the dunk contest this year. Durant says he's not even a very good dunker and doesn't make any good dunks in games. Durant says he rather have other stars be in the contest, like Nate Robinson or LeBron James.

"I don't jump high enough for those guys," Durant told ESPN. "Shannon Brown, LeBron [James], Rudy Gay, Dwight Howard, Nate Robinson, they're like all the way at the top of the mountain. I'm all the way at the bottom, trying to climb my way up."

It would be nice seeing him in a dunk contest, but it's his choice.
