All together, now.
THE NBA DUNK CONTEST IS BACK!!!
Saturday night’s showcase on TNT was the best the league has ever seen. Better than Vince Carter in 2000. Better than Spud Webb in 1986. And, yes, even better than M.J. vs. Dominique in 1988.
Zach LaVine of the Minnesota Timberwolves topped Aaron Gordon of the Orlando Magic in a battle that needed two extra dunk-offs to be settled.

There were free-throw line dunks. There were behind-the-backs and between-the-legs. There was jumping over mascots.
Let’s re-live it.
Here are the five best dunks from the greatest NBA Dunk Contest of all-time.
(SPOILER: They’re all by Gordon and LaVine; you’re probably going to wonder, how did Gordon not win? after reading, too.)
