— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

TWO HANDED WINDMILL JAM.

Last night, as part of NBA all star weekend, was the dunk contest, which last year was won by the Magic’s Dwight Howard with a rather spurious dunk (he technically throws it in I think, but can’t do much about it now)… This year, Howard went up against Nate Robinson in the final, 5’9 guard from the New York Knicks, a few years ago he jumped over the equally diminutive Spud Webb – the original tiny dunker. Well, Robinson won it with this dunk (5’9 jumping over 6’11? I’ll take that)

But I thought it would be churlish not post some of the classic dunks from contest’s past. Looking back, the contest seems to have got more gimmicky as the years have gone by. But without a doubt my fave is ‘The Human Highlight Film’ Dominique Wilkins, with his two handed windmill jam from the sideline AMAZING.

This guy used to play for the Celtics is now pretty much out of the league, but boy could he dunk. No.1 in this list is the one dunk I never get tired of seeing.
