Shump Shump won't be in the Dunk Contest

As we know, Iman Shumpert missed Monday's game against New Jersey because of knee tendinitis. This could explain some of the sloppy misses we've seen Shumpert make at the rinm this season; perhaps his lift-off isn't what it should be. Well, in addition to being held out for the remaining games this week, Shumpert will also miss the dunk contest.
NBA announces that #Knicks guard Iman Shumpert will be replaced by Jazz forward Jeremy Evans in the dunk contest.
That kind of stinks because Shumpert was really the only dunker I was looking forward to watching. I probably will still watch anyway, since even the worst dunk contests can have a cool trick or two, and I don't have any of those friend things to hang out with on Saturday nights... so what the hell? However, Adrian Wojnarowski totally has a point: if this dunk contest was held in your driveway, would you even open the drapes to watch?
