The NBA All-Star Weekend is here.
As a kid growing up wearing a Shawn Kemp jersey I really loved this weekend.
Especially the Slam Dunk Contest.
The “Reign Man” was my favorite competitor and yet he never won the title.
After watching I would always go outside and lower our adjustable hoop to its lowest setting and try to repeat what I had just seen on the TV.
Here is a look at five of the most memorable slam dunk competitions I can remember.
By the way, it is NOT a coincidence that three of the five on my list occurred while I was between six and 11 years-old.
5. 2003 Competition – Desmond Mason vs. Jason Richardson
4. 1986 Competition – Spud Webb defeats Dominique Wilkins
3. 1991 Competition – The “Reign Man” vs. Dee Brown
2. 2000 Competition – The Vince Carter Show
1. 1988 Competition – Michael Jordan’s Poster Dunk
So how’d I do?
Did I miss one?
Get the order wrong?
You tell me…
