Free Dunk Contest Money

Tyrus Thomas downplayed his excitement in being in the slam dunk contest on Monday night when he was asked about it.

“Not really,” Thomas said. “I’m just going to go out there, get my check and call it a day.”

“I’m just into the free money,” he said when asked if he thought fraternizing with the great dunk champs of years past could be of benefit to him. “That’s it. I’ll just do whatever when I get out there.”
