O'Quinn wants Oladipo to play the Prince Akeem role and have rose bearers for a dunk in the contest. Oladipo dislikes that idea.
Kyle O'Quinn suggested to Vic Oladipo that VO should do a "Coming to America"-themed contest dunk. VO rejected that idea.
“All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, 1 Peter 1:24
Payton (cont'd): “. . . even more excited that my man gets to come with me, with Vic. I think he’s having a great year."
Payton after he heard the news: “I’m excited. I’m blessed. I’m humbled and happy that the hard work has paid off . . ."
Thank you Lord for your many blessings.
Payton said: "Obviously, it's a blessing from God if I'm able to get in there. It would just show hard work pays off."
Coincidentally, I asked Payton this morning about whether he wanted to be involved in the Rising Stars Challenge. . . .
The Magic's Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton will participate in All-Star Weekend's Rising Stars Challenge on Feb. 13.
Love the process.
I have come to do your will, my God. Hebrews 10:7
Let's go Vols !!
The NBA has formally announced that Victor Oladipo will compete in the slam dunk contest on Feb. 14.
Be quick to take advantage of an advantage.
Is Nik Vučević an All-Star? Let's hear it.

Dewayne Dedmon's 10-point, 10-rebound performance was his first NBA double-double.
The Magic now have allowed at least 100 points in 10 consecutive games.
No Channing Frye at all in the second half. Still about 8 mins to play.
Harris needs to swing that ball to Fournier. Keep that defense moving.
Before the 4th, Kyle O'Quinn huddled Harris, Fournier, WGreen and Dedmon together and offered some encouragement.
Memphis: 24 of 26 from the free-throw line. Orlando: 11 of 19 from the line.
End of the third quarter: Grizzlies 89, Magic 73. Randolph: 24 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists. Oladipo; 16 points, 4 rebounds.
FS Florida scoreboard gave that Randolph basket to the Magic.
When was the last 5-by-5? And how soon until Anthony Davis gets one?
Marc Gasol just ate Dewayne Dedmon's lunch. Holy cow.
Zach Randolph is two boards and four assists shy of a triple-double.
I will say this: The Magic bench does appear into this game. Several players leaped off their seats to complain about an errant call.
Magic have yielded just eight points to Memphis through five-plus minutes of the third quarter. Grizz had 67 in the first half.
"Well done, partner." Jeff Turner to David Steele after Gasol misses a FT. Steele mentioned Gasol's perfect FT% upon the release.
The Magic began the third quarter using Dewayne Dedmon at power forward instead of Channing Frye.
Dewayne Dedmon starts the second half instead of Channing Frye
Magic players with more shooting possessions than Nik Vučević (six) tonight: Aaron Gordon, Elfrid Payton, Tobias Harris, Evan Fournier
Anyway: Grizzlies sets a season-high for points in a half (67) as they build a 19-point edge on Orlando after 24 minutes.
Halftime: Grizzlies 67, Magic 48. Randolph: 18 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assts. Magic: 0 2nd-quarter fastbreak points.
Grizzlies high for a half this year is 65 points. They're at 55 with 4:38 to go in the second.
The Grizzlies have 49 points with 6:18 remaining in the 2nd quarter. They're shooting 63 percent.
Willie Green, back-up point guard, is now a thing, apparently
End of the 1st quarter: Grizzlies 34, Magic 29. Randolph: 12 points. Magic: 13 fastbreak points. Payton: 6 pts, 3 assts.
Thirteen of the Magic's 29 points have been fastbreak points.
The Magic are doing a good job of pushing the pace. They lead 26-25 w/2:22 to go in the 1st quarter.
Prior to tonight, Dewayne Dedmon and Nik Vučević had played only 20 mins together this season.
The Grizz are exploiting their Zach Randolph matchup against Channing Frye. Randolph has 10 pts on 3-of-3 shooting from the field.
Magic deactivate Maurice Harkless, activate Dewayne Dedmon. The other inactive tonight is Ben Gordon.
Magic inactives tonight: Ben Gordon and Maurice Harkless.
Same Magic starters tonight: Payton, Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Frye and Vucevic.
Kemba out six weeks? Magic fans flood my mentions suggesting Orlando trade Luke Ridnour to Charlotte in 3…2…1…
