Ex Bearcat Bound for Dunk Competition

Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - He's got the right nickname.  Now Knicks forward James White finally has the chance to prove it fits - on one of basketball's biggest stages.

A star at the University of Cincinnati from 2003 - 2006, James "Flight" White will compete in the NBA's slam dunk competition February 16th in Houston.  White was a second round pick of Portland in 2006 but has spent more time playing overseas and in the D League than the NBA.

Also in the competition is UK product Erik Bledsoe.
