Top NBA Slam Dunk contests of all time


It’s the NBA All-Star Weekend and it’s sure to be one fun-filled weekend. Before the actual All-Star Game on Sunday, the NBA proves every year that they really know how to handle the All-Star ¬†festivities.

It kicked off last night with the Celebrity Game and the Rookie/Sophomore Game. Saturday night, however, is the night everyone truly cares about as the superstars take the court for the various skills events, including the Slam Dunk Contest.

Now, the last few years, it has been a rather large disappointment with the NBA trying different formats to the contest before finally coming back to the one we all know and love. We looked at the best ones from the past and decided to put together our own list.

So let’s check out highlights of some of the best Slam Dunk Contests in All-Star Weekend history.
