Slam Dunk Contest
2012 NBA ALL STAR SLAM DUNK CONTEST ORLANDO
- Winner: Jeremy Evans (UTA)
- Utah Jazz forward Jeremy Evans won, what in our opinion was a very weak Slam Dunk Contest, but he was the contestant with the highest fan support between more than 3m votes sent.
- His best dunk was a jump over teammate Gordon Hayward where he caught and dunk the balls Hayward threw in the air.
- The contest included guest stars (Kevin Hart and Puff Daddy), tributes (White Men Can’t Jump film, Larry Bird, Karl Malone and Cedric Ceballos) and even a dunk by Paul George with the lights turned off.
Slam Dunk Scores
- This year’s contest will feature a new single-round format. Each player has to execute three dunks, and only fan voting will determine who is the champion.
