— Dwight Howard has another chance to impress the slam dunk contest voters - which this year includes fans watching at home. The Orlando Magic center was one of four players chosen Monday to compete in the dunk contest at All-Star weekend, which will debut a new format in the final round. Defending champion Gerald Green, Toronto's Jamario Moon and Rudy Gay of Memphis round out the field for the event, which will be held Feb. 16 during All-Star Saturday night in New Orleans. After the final round of dunks, fans can vote by text message or on NBA.com to determine the winner. A panel of judges will decide which two dunkers advance to the finals.
