GRIII was rooting on his teammate, Victor Oladipo, in the dunk contest. Oladipo had approached Robinson III about doing the dunk contest and handling his unfinished business. A thoughtful, nice gesture. And now Glenn wants his own shot. Upon returning to Indianapolis for the final two months of the season, Robinson III told VigilantSports.com that he wants in another Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend. He won in 2017 and would like the chance to defend his crown.
As NBA All-Star weekend approaches Feb. 16-18, the reigning slam dunk champion won’t be back in time to defend his crown but would like to see Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell participate in Los Angeles just like the rest of the world. “Definitely. Just based off the highlights that I’ve seen and just watching his game. I like his game,” Robinson said. “I know a lot of people do and a lot of fans is excited and that’s the most important part. So I think that he definitely is going to be on that list to be in it. “Unfortunately I can’t do it this year because of my ankle but I would love to get back in it but it was a helluva experience for me,” he added. “Last year, going down there I was kind of the underdog and people didn’t expect for me to win it or didn’t know what I had in storage but (Donovan’s) got some bunnies so he will come up with something.”
