Kenneth Faried Slam Dunk Highlights (Video)

Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried will be facing an uphill battle on Saturday night if he has hopes of taking home the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest title against some of the more athletic and dynamic dunkers in the field. There is little question that Faried may be the most powerful dunker out of the group, but his creativity and ability to pull of the more difficult dunks could leave him watching the final round from the sidelines.

I have a feeling that Faried gave us his best dunk last night in the NBA Rising Stars challenge and that will not be enough to get the job done tonight.

Here are some of Kenneth Faried’s slam dunk highlights to get your blooding pumping as we wait for tonight’s slam dunk competition:

Do you think he has what it takes to take home the title or will another member of the competition claim the slam dunk crown?
