VIDEO: Michael Jordan And Dominique Wilkins In 1988 Dunk Contest

8443607As we continue to celebrate Michael Jordan’s 50th Birthday, let’s take a look back at the 1988 Slam Dunk contest between Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins.

It was considered the greatest dunk contest of all-time between two of the greatest dunkers of all-time. It was held in Chicago Stadium so it was basically Jordan’s home crowd. It was like a heavyweight fight between these two sluggers. They set the standard for the dunk contest that has arguably been unmatched.

Dominique brought the nasty and Jordan countered every time. In the end, Jordan won the contest with a free throw line dunk that got a 50. Some people say that Wilkins was robbed after he got a 45 for the two-handed windmill jam. But people say that Jordan’s double-clutch dunk before that shouldn’t have gotten a 47. It’s a debate that continues to rage today and the dunk contest was 25 years ago!

Nevertheless, the dunk contest still stands the test of time today. It’s too bad that stars don’t compete anymore in the dunk contest (the last star to compete was Dwight Howard in 2009). If it were, it would be a hot event unlike today’s dunk contests.
