5 Dunks That Would Win In the NBA Slam Dunk Contest

The NBA Slam Dunk Contest is all about spectacular moves and making the crowd go wild. The dunks come in all kinds of varieties; some are sick one-handed jumps while others are crazy windmills that make people jump off their seats. There have certainly been some awesome dunks in previous contests, but there are always ways to set the bar higher than ever.

I will focus on five dunks that are surely worthy of a perfect score if they were done on the Slam Dunk Contest. While it’s incredibly difficult to set new limits based on what happens year after year, there is always an opportunity to create something out of nowhere and for a player to pencil their name into history with a dunk that will set the mark for the foreseeable future.

It must be said that all these high-flying dunks were performed during actual games, so that adds difficulty to the moves. It's one thing to make a huge dunk in a practice, but it’s a completely different story to make it in an actual NBA game where there’s a lot on the line.

From windmills to alley-oops, to incredible 360 moves from the past, these are some of the best dunks ever made outside of a dunk contest that would surely gather a perfect score.
