ESPN: LeBron James isn't going to stuff too much into his first All-Star weekend after all.
James ended speculation that he might enter Saturday's slam dunk contest in Los Angeles, saying Wednesday night he would definitely skip the event.
"I'm out! I'm out! I'm out!" he said following a 20-point loss to the New Jersey Nets. "No more questions about the slam dunk."
Earlier this week, James said he was still mulling over an invitation from the NBA to participate in the dunk contest. He had turned down the league a few weeks ago but on Monday said he was reconsidering.
