Let Pargo Dunk: Cavs guard Jeremy Pargo has launched a Twitter campaign, #LetPargoDunk, to get into the Slam Dunk Contest during the All-Star Game in Houson. Using the Twitter handle @DontHa8Pargo, he has featured clips of himself dunking. To watch, go to youtube.com/watch?v=5q9633pc0hw.

Of course, Cavs fans got to see the real thing when he dunked against Atlanta on Wednesday.

Even though the league doesn't let fans vote for the dunk participants, Pargo thought the publicity campaign might catch on anyway.

"I've seen guys over the years do it and it came out good for them," he said. "It's something we talked about as a team. Guys were willing to help. Hopefully it works. I don't know if it will work."

The league typically announces the Slam Dunk field about 10 days before the event. This year, All-Star Saturday Night is Feb. 16 in Houston.

"I think he would be good at it," Cavs coach Byron Scott said. "I think it's good you have some guys who want to be in it, because there's so many guys in the league right now that are dunkers who don't want to be in the dunk contest. Hopefully, they'll give him some serious consideration.

"He's got a way of being entertaining. . . . He's got an array of dunks, and at 6-1 or 6-2, he can fly. I think he'd be good at it."

Pargo is a great athlete. If he'd been with the Cavs in '89, we might not have had this highlight to remember.

If Pargo would have ALWAYS been our SG, it would have been even more fun watching him while he was at GU. PG was never his strong suit.

Not his strong suit? That is why he currently playing in the NBA as a point guard. Top 4 or 5 all time assists in GU History. Nice analysis.

For some reason there was this notion that he was a ballhog or something, even though he would shoot less and pass more than, say, Pangos (who I also think it would be absurd to call a ballhog). Turned the ball over quite a bit, but also played defense a very high level for a point guard.

He was really a terrific player for us.
