I didn’t even know the WNBA had an All-Star Game, so maybe adding a dunk contest is a good idea?

The WNBA is considering adding a dunk contest next year to All-Star Weekend, reports ESPN.com.

As reported, WNBA president Laurel Richie told The Associated Press that the powers that be have discussed the idea and that it is under consideration to replace the now-defunct skills and three-point contests. While the WNBA has never had a dunk contest before, 15 years ago the ABL had one of its own, and Sylvia Crawley brought the house down with a couple of creative dunks. Since then, the game has been growing by leaps and bounds.

Would Brittney Griner just be competing against herself?
