This weekend is All-Star Weekend, which means that the Slam Dunk contest is going to be dominating the weekend. In preparation for the big event, NBA TV is showing a Dunk-a-Thon all day on Thursday which will showcase classic dunk contests from the 80s and 90s.

Here’s a complete rundown of all the Slam Dunk contests that will be aired as part of this year’s Slam Dunk-a-Thon. All times are eastern. 

10:00am — 1976 and 1984 Slam Dunk Contest
10:30am — 1985 Slam Dunk Contest
