The Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown aka as the “other dunk contest” took place at the beginning of All-Star weekend and just because you didn’t hear about it, doesn’t mean it wasn’t awesome. These dudes can get up!
Judged by LeBron James, NBA Legend Darryl Dawkins, and Sprite All-Stars Carlos “Los” Smothers and Myree “Reemix” Bowden. Contestants Kenny Dobbs aka “K.Dobbs” from Phoenix, Haneef Munir aka “Young Hollywood” from Los Angeles, Terry Cournoyea aka “T-DUB” from Saint Paul and Justin Darlington aka “Jus Fly” from Toronto all brought the ruckus.
But in the end, it was “Young Hollywood” that took home the winning pound from LeBron, the trophy and $10,000 prize. Dear NBA, more please!
