Then and Now: All-Star Slam Dunk Contest

The Slam Dunk Contest at this year’s All-Star Weekend certainly was a memorable one, with Zach LaVine and Aaron Gordon pulling off some pretty impressive moves.

The NBA’s best have been strutting their stuff in the Slam Dunk Contest for many years, and it’s fascinating to see how the contest has evolved.

For your viewing pleasure, the NBA have provided us with a comparison of the 1988 battle between Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins, and Saturday’s showdown between LaVine and Gordon.
