  • ktapreswreck d921v
    ktapreswreck d921v 2 недели назад I agree that Jordan put up a better peformance, so he deserves to win. But if you want to get technical about it. Wilkins never missed a dunk, while Jordan missed two. So technically Wilkins won.

    iamlsusam Неделю назад The dunking contest of recent years is only a pail imitation of these original glory years. Many of the current top players don’t even bother to complete!

  • Jim Vick
    Jim Vick 3 месяца назад 2 handed windmill getting a 45 is criminal.. I still think that is one of the greatest dunks ever...
  • Santiago Poch Huguet
    Santiago Poch Huguet 3 месяца назад It was an scandle. In fact, that 2 handed windmill was clearly better than the 1 handed windmill (2nd Nique's finals dunk), which didn't deserve 50, cause the ball didn't drill the basket ring cleanly. I was for Wilkins.
  • Jim Vick
    Jim Vick 3 месяца назад I've yet to see another dude do that dunk, its fucking disgusting... I could do a 1 handed windmill in my prime, but 2 handed = a dislocated shoulder or something bad...
