Steve Novak and James “Flight” White Headed to All-Star Weekend


The New York Knicks will be well-represented on All-Star Weekend with the announcement of Steve Novak and James “Flight” White being named to the Three-Point Shootout and Slam Dunk Contest.

Novak is shooting 44.4% (third in the league) from downtown this year. White has vowed to deliver a “classic” dunk performance that will be the best since Vince Carter’s memorable 2000 win.

Novak and White will mark four Knicks participating in All-Star Weekend, with team captains Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler playing in the All-Star game.


Maybe I’m a tad bias, but I’m predicting Novak takes the three-point contest easy. Unless he gets a severe case of nerves, the three-point contest pretty much mirrors his warm-up routine. And White’s dunk acumen needs no introduction. All we need now is Melo to show out in the main game.
