Shumpert out, Evans in for Saturday's Dunk Contest

It was announced today that Jeremy Evans has replaced Knicks point guard Iman Shumpert in the Dunk Contest scheduled for this weekend. Shumpert was originally selected for the contest, but suffered a Knee injury over the weekend that will keep him out of action until after the All-Star break.

While it will be a little disappointing that the Knicks will not have a representative in the contest, Jeremy Evans is a very worthy replacement, and in my opinion, is now the early favorite to win.
