The NBA’s Slam Dunk contest takes place on All Star Saturday Night in Toronto on February 13th, and it looks like Denver Nuggets breakout star Will Barton will be a contestant.
Nate joined the BSNDenver team in September of 2015 and is a Nuggets contributor. He began blogging about the Nuggets for SB Nation's PickaxeandRoll.com (DenverStiffs.com) in January of 2009, and has been credentialed since 2012. He has a journalism and history degree from Metropolitan State College of Denver. While in school he interned at KDVR Fox 31 in the Sports Department. Growing up in Colorado it was important to learn the history of the Nuggets, to understand the gloom and the glory of the franchise. You can follow Timmons on Twitter here: @NateTimmonsCO
