Dwight Howard declines NBA invite for 2014 NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest

Dwight Howard

It appeared that the NBA wanted to bring in some premier names for this year’s NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest in New Orleans.

One of the names that they apparently asked to participate was Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard who won the competition back in 2008.

Sadly, it looks like D-12 declined the invite according to John Reid of NOLA.com:

Oh well, they can get Gerald Green, right?
