GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Up until now, the highlight of James “Flight” White’s basketball career may have been the dunk contest he won in Russia in 2010 in which he beat Gerald Green.

“Probably the one with Gerald Green was the [most] fun,” White, who played for Bob Huggins at Cincinnati, said earlier this week at Knicks practice. “I had a couple friends that were in it. The more competitive it is, the more fun it is. It’s not fun when nobody else is doing anything. ”

White, a 30-year Knick reserve, will appear on his biggest stage yet Saturday night when he competes in the Slam Dunk Contest over All-Star weekend in Houston.
