looking to get "posterized" this weekend?

(ed. note – we’d put some cool promotional video here, but we can’t get vidder to embed, so if you feel like helping the agency that created it earn their payday you can click here)

okay, so maybe while my beloved atlanta hawks are embroiled in a heated series with the cavs isn’t the best time to be bringing to town a promotion featuring lebron james, but you can’t blame the nba for throwing it’s most marketable player out there.

anyway, if you are a fan of roundball and looking for something to do in between playoff games this weekend, i suggest you head over to the sweet auburn festival this weekend and check out the sprite nba amateur dunk contest, which is apparently, “lebron james certified,” (which must be an interesting certification program.)

should be a damn good time, and the folks at the nba assure me this is free to attend, and you can even participate by voting for your favorite amateur dunker via text message.

the winners are going to head to the all-start game in dallas next year to compete for a pretty big prize package, so your vote could be huge.

you can also submit your dunk by video if you can’t make it but you think you have a little josh smith in you, by visiting

i plan on checking it out if i can on saturday and posting some pics.

should be a blast.
