The Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown has been working its way across the country this spring and into the summer, with some of the best amateur dunkers in the nation putting on a real show.
Because you will not get to see some fun competition and highlight dunks from Summer League this year — thank you so much NBA lockout — we thought we’d bring you some showdown highlights instead.
Enjoy the Fourth of July, enjoy some good barbecue and good friends, and enjoy the top 10 dunks from the showdown.
