NBA Slam Dunk Contest: Best dunks from the East contestants (GIF)


The NBA is trying to spice up their slam dunk contest which has grown a bit stale over the last few years so this year’s competition began with each conference having a 90 second freestyle competition which served as a default warmup.

Here you can see last year’s dunk contest champion Terrence Ross from the Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards point guard and former No. 1 overall pick John Wall and Paul George from the Indiana Pacers showing off their skills.
