As you already know, the participants this year for the Dunk Contest are Harrison Barnes, Ben McLemore, Terrence Ross, Paul George, John Wall, and Damian Lillard. But, new to the Dunk Contest this year is the format. Check it out:

The players are going to be split up into two teams; East vs West. Leading the East is Captain Paul George, (Defending Champion) Terrence Ross, and John Wall. Leading the West is Captain Damian Lillard, Ben McLemore, and Harrison Barnes.

The Dunk Contest is divded into three rounds: Freestyle, Battle, and Final Round. Here’s what each one contains:

Freestyle RoundThe players in each conference will have 90 seconds to attempt as many dunks as they possibly can. After each conferences completes their freestyle, the judges will vote East or West.

Battle Round: The winning conference of the Freestyle Round will then get to decide who goes first in the Battle Round. Plain and simple, it’s a head-to-head dunk-off. The winner will be determined by judges. The winner of the Freestyle Round gets to choose the order of the Battle Round. The Dunk Contest winner will be determined when no players from one conference are remaining in the competition.

Final Round: Fans will be able to vote online through various apps and websites to determine the best individual dunker. However, rather than being the Dunk Contest Champion, he will instead earn the new title “Dunker of the Night.”

Now many people are not too happy with this change and were not afraid to speak out on twitter:

On the other hand, Paul George is all for it!

George says, “It’s a real honor to serve as the Captain of the Eastern Conference Team for All-Star saturday night. This is a great opportunity to support and raise awareness of very worthy charities while entertaining our fans with contests showcasing the athleticism, creativity and excitement of our game. I’m particularly pumped to be in the Slam Dunk Contest as the new format provides players with the chance to display our individual skills while battling for conference bragging rights.”

  24. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
