NBA All-Star Saturday night should be a blast for Indiana Pacers fans with Paul George taking part in the Sprite NBA Slam Dunk Competition.

PG has been quite confident heading into the competition but he still needs to votes to win, so make sure you are ready to vote early and often for PG. He'll need all of the help he can get with Ricky Rubio bringing all of Spain to the table by helping out Derrick Williams.

Here is the info on fan voting with details to come as the competition approaches.

Beginning this year, only fan voting will be utilized in determining the winner and voting also will expand to social media. For the first time ever, fans will be able to cast votes on Twitter by posting a corresponding letter assigned to each dunker along with the hashtag #SpriteSlam.
