This week is all set up for the 2013 PBA All Star where the most exciting part of the All Star is the Slam Dunk competition. With KG Cañaleta not being part of the said competition who will be the next to grab his crown as the best slam dunk player in PBA History. Without Kelly Williams out of the league due to injury and Gabe Norwood being part of Gilas, it seems that three of the most high flying players in the league will miss this years slam dunk competition. Coach Chot Reyes of Smart Gilas does not want any Gilas players to be part of the Slam Dunk and Three point shoot out.
But nothing to worry about, if we think that this might be the most lousy All Star Slum Dunk competition, we better think twice. The most electrifying, high flyer and intense player in the PBA today is more favored to win today's Slam Dunk Competition. He has been doing a lot of fantastic dunks from the start he came in the league and basically the most finest dunk we ever saw in a local player in over a decade now.
The rookie from the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, Chris Ellis will compete for the Slam Dunk Competition together with team mate Elmer Espiritu, Calvin Abueva of Alaska Aces and Cliff Hodge of the Meralco Bolts. It is very evident that among all the mentioned players Ellis has the highest jump. However, we cannot underestimate the power slams that Cliff Hodge can do. It will be a Ellis versus Hodge, beauty versus power come the All Star Slam Dunk Competition.
