The Best Dunk Contest Ever Held Going Down This Saturday In L.A.

If you were out in Los Angeles last year for the Nike 3-on-3 Tournament, then you saw one of the best dunk contests ever produced. And that was just two dunkers! This Saturday, right in front of the Staples Center at L.A. Live, has the potential to be the greatest slam dunk contest ever held. For real. Werm and T-Dub are coming off their victories in the NBA’s Sprite Slam Dunk Contest, while Golden Child and Jus Fly have been destroying competition all summer. Oh yeah, and there’s also some guy named James White who was just added to the field. (Unfortunately, he’s not in the preview video below.) After this contest, I think we can pretty much crown the “Best Dunker in the World.”

Also, here’s the video from last year’s matchup between T-Dub and Guy Dupuy.

What do you think? Who’s going to win?

    Finally a dunk contest that will live up to the hype.

    That first Golden Child dunk at the :55 mark is just plain stupid.

  • junior

    if mr 720 isnt in it,
    they cant crown the best dunker in the world.
    its that simple

  • control

    These guys are some amazing dunkers, but can we PLEASE stop with the jumping over one or two guys who are ducking? Jumping over shit is so 2002, if they want to be impressive while jumping over something stupid, then jump over 7ft frenchmen in games. Jumping over two small children is just stupid, nearly anyone who can dunk can do that.

    The other annoying thing about these contests is the crowd. Do they have to rush the court and jump around like kangaroos having seizures after nearly every dunk?

  • Bilal23

    gotta agree about the first golden child dunk. that one i had to watch a few times just to believe what i saw

  • yoda

    nice dunks. but i wonder how many guys there can hit 5 straight free throws :)
    and i agree with control about crowd.

  • stefan

    they are destroying the magic of in-game dunks. this guys have nearly no bball talent but they just love to dunk. dupuy and 720 should be there. then it would be legit. also, someone should persuade a highjump athlete to train with the basketball, just dunking, there are probably dozens who jump higher and could do better dunks

    I have asked this before, but I’ll ask again.

    Can any of those dudes from TFB actually play ball or are they just dunkers? I’ve never seen Mr. 720 play ball either now that I think about it.

    Any answers out there?

  • Belize

    james flight all the way

  • AUT

    well you obviously dont know shit bout mr720, he is a very good bb player, all of them can hit 10 freethrows in a row, except justin maybe

  • Talented

    Case and point: If Team Flight Bros., James White, the European guy who can kick the rim and all type crazy ish, and Mr.720 aint involved they aint crownin SH*T as far as dunk contests go. Point blank.

  • star_bury

    @ Talented – The European guy that can kick the rim = Kadour Ziani.

    @Camron Ghorbi
    When you say, “just plain stupid”, does that mean “good”?

    Brah…you are so right about the crowd jumping around. Funny sht.

    @ everybody who keeps saying “can these guys hit a jumpshot??”
    Who gives a crap? This is a dunk contest. After Steve Kerr and Jeff Hornacek would win 3-point contests, do we ask, “But can they jump over 3 children and dunk it?”

    @Aron and Dime
    Eh fellas, where’s my prize pack?


  • S-SiN
