Magic Johnson offered "a million to the winner" of the dunk contest… (Gina Ferazzi / Los Angeles…)
Money well spent?
Former Lakers great Magic Johnson, on his efforts to boost the intrigue surrounding the NBA's dunk contest: "Please, LeBron, get in the dunk contest. I'm going to put up a million dollars. A million dollars from Magic to LeBron. Please get in the dunk contest. I go every year. I want to see you out there. A million to the winner."
That answers that
Minnesota Coach Rick Adelman, when asked whether there was a point when he gained more trust in Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams: "Well, Kevin Love's broken his hand twice."
Denver guard Andre Iguodala, on what makes Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant such a special talent: "It's really good that he's still young, he doesn't have a girlfriend yet and he can just focus in on basketball. It's helping him be a better player."
He may date eventually
Durant, when apprised of Iguodala's remarks: "He said that? Oh, man. I don't want to make anybody upset if they're watching this, but I guess so. I guess all of my focus is on basketball."
