Video Transcript

- All right. Cool. We're going to do that. Oh, and by the way, we have some breaking news here. I know you're paying attention. You want to know about the dunk contest that's going on at halftime. We have the judges right now. And we're going to let you know exactly who they are. And they're all former champions. Josh Smith, who broke out the Dominique jersey in '05. Dee Brown, could he see, or could he not? Doesn't matter. He won. Jason Richardson. Spud Webb, who won in his hometown in '86. And the man whose statue was erected outside the arena. Dominique Wilkins. Channing, your thoughts on this lineup.

CHANNING FRYE: First one. J Rich. I've got an opportunity to play with him in Phoenix. That dude got some of the craziest bounce back then.

- Oh yeah.

CHANNING FRYE: I think he could still dunk. But for me, watching, you know, obviously playing a lot against Josh Smith. It's a great lineup. I like the lineup. I like that it's an Atlanta based lineup. And, hey. I should be out there.

- You should be out there. I was just about to ask you, have you ever won a dunk contest or participated in one in your life?

CHANNING FRYE: No.

- No. That was really quick. So why did you say you should be out there? I'm curious.

CHANNING FRYE: Just because my perspective from the 3 point line is usually very good. It's the opposite. Since I didn't know how to dunk, I'm impressed by every dunk. So everything is either an 8, 9 or 10.

- Television's Channing Frye, everyone. Tonight on TNT, you will know who the judges are. Talk to me in my ear, [INAUDIBLE]. What else are we finding out tonight? The dunk participants will be announced tonight. The 3 point participants. Everybody is going to be announced tonight. Everything that's going to take place pregame and halftime for all-star-- it's not even weekend-- all-star day on Sunday is going to be announced tonight on TNT.
