Yeah, I see where LeBron decided to show up after all. There were some stories circulating late Thursday that he may take the weekend off due to coming down with a touch of the flu and having a sore ankle.

No, the dunk contest is not limited to younger players. He is not in it this year because he did not make the all star team as a reserve, but was quoted as saying he would have participated if LeBron were competing this year. It would be asinine for the league to put that kind of a stip on the dunk contest. The league would be more than happy to have guys like Carter, Kobe, T-Mac, and Steve Francis in there. The main reason nobody cares now is the lack of marquee players. The only reason the contest was such a huge event back in its hey day was because the big name guys like MJ, 'Nique, and Dr. J agreed to do it.

I think we may be surprised at what Amare offers up tonight.
