    All four guys are very athletic and creative; should be fun to watch!

    We all know Dwight was robbed last year; wonder what he'll do to top his "sticker" dunk?

    According to the Sentinel, he has plans to wear a "Superman" cape for a dunk and possibly attempt a dunk from behind the backboard.

    Howard: "I don't have any stickers, so I won't be putting a smiley face on there, but I might be putting something else on the backboard."

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him do his "kiss the rim" dunk.

    There is also a rumor of him doing some form of a free throw line dunk.

    Yeah, Dwight was totally robbed last year but he's gonna dunk the hell out of it, just judging by what he's been practicing:

    That last dunk is absolutely sick. Another half hour and we'll see it all!
