Knicks rookie Mitchell Robinson has a bunch of highlight reel dunks to his credit so far this season, including the ridiculous reverse alley-oop he pulled off on Nov. 2.
And Robinson would love to be in the dunk contest at the All-Star festivities in February. Oh, and he wouldn't mind playing in the rookie/sophomore game too.
"It's crossed my mind,'' Robinson told Marc Berman of the New York Post. "I always wanted to be in one - a dunk contest. If I have a chance, why not go for it. And if I get selected for that [the rookie-sophomore game], it would be great, too. It's a big dream of mine. Maybe I can do both."
Knicks head coach David Fizdale thinks that if Robinson is in the contest, he has a chance to dominate it.
"I guarantee if you put him in the dunk contest, he'll be a finalist if not win it," Fizdale told Berman. "He does stuff where the whole team is: did he just do that? He's a freak of nature athletically.''
