Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown is Tomorrow! UPDATED Event Time!

Back on May 7th, we wrote about the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown that would be stopping through Portland and guess what, the event has finally arrived!


It'll take place place tomorrow at 1:00 PM during Rose Festival festivities. 

The official word now is that the registration for dunkers begins at 1:30 PM with the open call starting at 2:30 PM.   The "final showdown" will then be at 4:00 PM.

Review on what I just typed:
  • 1:30 PM - Registration for Dunkers
  • 2:30 PM - Open Call
  • 4:00 PM - Final Showdown
And if you'd like to meet Sir Darryl Dawkins, there will be a meet and greet sometime around 3:30 PM.

The address given on their website is:

1020 SW Naito Parkway
Portland, OR

I'm guessing that is somewhere near that crappy fair with the 80 year old rides?  Maybe they'll block off the whole corner at 10th and Naito?  I'm also hoping that the 1:00 PM time slot is Pacific Standard or we'll all be screwed.

I should be in attendance along with JB from Deceptively Quick plus some of the Team Flight Brothers.  Should be the best Rose Festival event of the week if you ask me.

I'm still trying to figure when that Darryl Dawkins meet & greet is. I love the smell of urine as much as the next guy but don't really want to hang-out at the Rose Festival longer than necessary.

Supposed to call some "chick" named Devin who can set it up I guess. For some reason all I can think of is Devin the Dude though which has left me even more confused.

On the site it said 2:00 p.m. last time I looked, which was about five minutes ago. But your 1:00 is good -- guess it's better to show up early than late, because sounds like it's going to take a couple hours to even find this thing...

Email I have from their media peeps says 1PM, but I'm double checking with her to find out.

Might as well show up at 10AM with a to-go-cup'd bloody mary and make a morning out of it.

Ok updated...who knows if those times will stand or if everyone is just completely misinformed. Either way, show up around 1PM.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
