This weekend, with a guillotine hanging over the start of the NBA season, players will take part in a couple of celebrity games (LeBron vs. Wade in Miami, Goodman vs. Drew in Los Angeles). We could use the escape and see some actual hoops.

And as a reminder of how fun exhibitions can be, we bring you a video of Michael Jordan vs. Dominique Wilkins in some of the best dunk contests the league has ever seen.

Enjoy. We’ll go back to being depressed about the NBA on Monday.
