Lets take a walk down memory lane

Every year, the NBA All-Star Weekend features a slew of competitions and events that showcase the talents of the league’s best who don’t get to show it every night. One of the competitions that seem to always be the marquee event to watch is, the Sprite Dunk Contest. Featuring the league’s best rim rockers, the dunk contest always seems to bring out the high flyers of the league.


But the real question is, what are some of the most memorable performances? What about Nate “Kryptonite” Robinson’s dunk over Dwight Howard or J-Rich famous under the legs slam? Those are just examples of dunks people probably forgot, so this slideshow should remind you.
