The Slam Dunk contest. We are almost there. One of my favorite and most anticipated events of the year. I always look forward to the high-flying, jaw-dropping, out-of-this-world dunks because, well, it's pure acrobatic awesomeness! While I count down the moments until Saturday's contest, here’s my top five favorite NBA dunkers.
NBA All-Star weekend is finally here! NBA fans have a whole weekend to soak in the league’s best players putting on a show, from the celebrity game to the rookie-sophomore contest all the way to main event on Sunday evening. But there’s still one competition that trumps all the others: the dunk contest.
Watching the league’s most athletic players showing off their most impressive dunks has always been my favorite moment of All-Star weekend. Julius Erving. Michael Jordan. Vince Carter. Legends are made in the dunk contest. We all wish we could fly through the air and pull off some of the most iconic dunks, but most of us, myself included, can’t jump high enough to do a 360 tomahawk on a regulation 10-foot rim.

The Knicks City Kids typically shimmy and twirl on the court during half time and timeouts at home Knicks games, but this month they hit the hardwood to show off their basketball moves. And they didn’t perform just any kind of moves.

Last night Ray Allen eclipsed Reggie Miller to become the all-time leader in three-pointers, surpassing a record that stood for 13-years and was considered by some as unbreakable. While Allen is the newly crowned king of the trey, we can’t forget the legendary Miller and his three-point thrills. But who is better behind the arc? Keep reading to see what I think and then tell me what you think in the comments!
He’s a legendary skateboarding pro, but on February 25th Tony Hawk will be the host with the most at Cartoon Network’s first ever Hall of Game Awards show.
Although skateboarding's king couldn’t reveal much about the sports and entertainment show that allows sports fans to vote on their favorite athletes and sports moments of the year, he did give a few hints about what to expect. Mr. 900 (Hawk was the first skater ever to land the 900—a trick that involves two and a half mid-air spins!—at the 1999 X Games) also chats about video games and some of his favorite new skaters on the scene.
