Unless Superman is planning a surprise appearance out of another phone booth, don't expect to hear Dwight Howard's name called when the NBA announces its All-Star dunk participants on Monday.
[...] why doesn't Howard take another run at the contest?
Howard also said he wants to conserve his energy for what he hopes will be another run at a title.
"(A dunk contest) takes a lot of energy. It takes a lot to get up and people don't understand that," Orlando's center said. "They say, 'He's tall and he's right there at the rim and it doesn't take a lot.' It takes a lot for me to get up and do a lot of things I do in the air. And I weigh a lot (265 pounds), too.''
A little over a month ago, I asked the community whether or not Dwight Howard should compete in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest and 58% of the the respondents said "no." Some people commented that Howard had nothing left to prove in the competition.
So, what does everyone think of Howard's decision?
