2012 NBA Slam Dunk Contest: TV Schedule, Time, Participants

The 2012 NBA Slam Dunk Contest has always been the marquee event of NBA Saturday night, but this year's lack of star power and/or rumors of dunking over cars has resulted in less than normal publicity for the showcase. The casual NBA fan would be lucky to know two of the four contestants – recent lottery picks, Paul Geroge and Derrick Williams.

Start time: All-Star Saturday Night begins at 8:30 EST, but the Dunk Contest will probably begin around 10:15-10:30

TV Schedule: Coverage of All-Star Saturday Night begins at 8:00 EST on TNT

Participants: Paul George of the Indiana Pacers, Derrick Williams of Minnesota T'Wolves, Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz and Chase Budinger of the Houston Rockets.

Betting Odds: (via Sportsbook.com) Paul George +180, Chase Budinger +200, Jeremy Evans +275, Derrick Williams +375
