Slam Dunk Contest

NBA ALL STAR SLAM DUNK CONTEST HISTORY AND RESULTS

  • All NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest Winners
  • In the 80’s, with players like Julius Erving, Larry Nance, Dominique Wilkins or Michael Jordan, who were able to make art executing a dunk, the NBA decided to include the Slam Dunk contest (and also the legends game) in the NBA All Star Weekend.
  • The rules are simple, each player has to make a number of dunks. The jury scores the performance. The highest scores pass to the next round. In the final round the player with the highest number of points win.
  • Specially in the first years it was a huge show, with great stars like Michael Jordan or big surprises like Spud Webb.
  • While years passed, there was less imagination, and the big stars didn’t want to participate because of the risk of injuries.
  • These were some of the reasons for the elimination of the Slam Dunk contest in 1998.
  • But since 2000, a new generation of dunkers led by Vince Carter brought the contest back to life.
  • The below overview contains all results and links to the respective event pages, which include more information, scores, and videos.
