Georgia Gwizzlies Plan To Enter Two Small Guards In Slam Dunk Competition

November 13, 2007 - American Basketball Association (ABA) - Georgia Gwizzlies News Release

Macon, GA. Embry Malone, owner of the ABA Georgia Gwizzlies, intends to enter two small guards into the ABA Slam Dunk competition at the 2008 All-Star Weekend.

"I've been watching 5'11 Behdad Sami, our Iranian point guard and 6'1 Stuart Mitchell in practice the last couple of weeks and have seen both of them doing what I think has been reserved for 6'4-6'9 inch players. They are amazing talents and I think having these guys will really delight the fans. We've been lobbying for the league to have the ABA All Star game in Middle Georgia and as I understand it, we are in the running. We've been getting great support from the media here. I hope it happens - and fans worldwide can see these two remarkable talents with a spectacular array of dunks. Their vertical jumps are amazing."
