To commemorate that and the upcoming Slam Dunk Contest, here’s a highlight video of 3 of Jordan’s Slam Dunk Contest Performances — his duels with Dominique “The Human Highlight Film” Wilkins, one of which he won and one of which he lost,…

    Jordan Dunk

    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…

    Blake Griffin car dunk

    The days of the Dominique tomahawk are gone. The Jordan cradle dunk is a dinosaur. Throwing it off the backboard to yourself is passé. Blake Griffin dunked over a car while a gospel choir sang at midcourt. And he is your 2011 Slam Dunk Contest champion. It was impressive and entertaining. That, my friends, is…

    The name Wilkins will once again be across the back of a Hawks jersey. The Hawks have signed Damien Wilkins — nephew of Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins — to a contract, the team announced.
