High flying action to hold you over

Posted By Jessica Camerato On June 3, 2009 @ 12:32 am In General | 1 Comment

After non-stop hoops through the first three rounds of the playoffs, the stretch before Game 1 of NBA Finals [1] can seem like four weeks rather than four days. The good news is, there is still some high flying action to enjoy before the Los Angeles Lakers [2] and Orlando Magic [3] get underway on Thursday,

The NBA and Sprite are searching for the best dunker to compete in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown during the 2010 All-Star Weekend. Contests are being held in eight cities around the country and each winner will receive $1,000. In addition, LeBron James [4] and a panel of judges will select two winners from a pool of online video submissions.

Once those 10 dunkers have been selected, fans will vote on four contestants to go to Dallas for All-Star Weekend and compete for $10,000 and a spot in the 2010 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.

Click here [5] to watch the winners from Atlanta, Los Angeles, Portland, and San Francisco. Check out the Bay Area’s winner, Guy Dupuy, who throws down a windmill over six people. Submit your own videos at www.nba.com/dunk [6].
