Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine admitted he would have competed in the Dunk Contest if he had been selected in the All-Star team.

“If I would’ve made it, I would’ve done it for y’all, man. But I just don’t — I don’t got it in me. If I would have made it, I would’ve made it even then. It’s not like I really wanted to.

I would have just put on for my city. You know it’s in Chicago, and I don’t need a lot to prove about the Dunk Contest. I haven’t done any dunks like that since the last time I won.

I’m playing a lot more minutes now, carrying a lot more of the burden so it’s harder on the legs, but still four games out the playoffs so I got to look a little bit smarter this time and I think shooting 3’s might be a little easier on the knees,” LaVine told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson of Heavy.

LaVine is competing in the 3-point contest, but he won’t be in the dunk contest or All-Star game.
