This dunk contest never gets old! MJ and Nique both had superb abilities.

I was a kid and remember watching this contest with my dad. There was so much energy in this event, you could feel it watching from home on your tv! While I was an MJ fan and was rooting for him (and he performed top tier that night!) - to this day I think Dominique was robbed. My jaw dropped on that double-handed windmill!

@r2facts I am a WAY bigger fan of Jordan that Dominique, but this is an easy call. That two handed windmill was a 50 all day, every day. Jodan's free through dunk only should have been a 50 if he took off behind the line. Sorry MJ.

It was by far the best dunk and was scored down a point specifically to give Jordan the undeserved win at home. Jordan may be the GOAT but that day in Chicago, he was bested by Dominique Wilkins.

It had the mystique because the top 2 scorers in the league and two legends were finalists but Dominique just did the windmill over and over and the dunks are a joke compared to anything the last 20 plus years but I still love it because of the myth and starpower
toddster119 Vor 5 Monate
@Shawn Valentino I think it's a mistake to compare it to today's contests. Today's dunkers are more creative, and Vince Carter's dunks would've destroyed any contest. Today and yesteryear.

Ted Turner owned my cable provider and the Hawks at the time, and he showed all the Hawks games to promote the team. So I saw a lot of Wilkins in his prime, and him having to carry his whole team. He was a remarkable basketball player. They didn't call him the human highlights real for nothing.
Donna Montgomery
Yes he was Dave! He was probably the 2nd best scorer most years when they both played. It was a damned travesty when he didn't make 50 best all time..absolutely recoculous

Absolutely EPIC contest, I never get sick of watching it! Today's NBA will never be able to replicate the dunk authority alone how they punished the rim! Nowadays they're afraid to hurt their pretty manicured hands when dunking there is no authority..these two tried to MURDER the rim on each dunk!!

This will always be my favorite Dunk Contest with 2 great legends. Dominique got cheated, there's NO way his dunk was a 45 & he never missed a dunk. The judges gave the home team a gift bc how do u miss your 1st dunk & u make the 2nd & the judges give u a 50 🤷🏾‍♂️ GTFOH . . .

I'm so sad that because of the context I lived in, I didn't have the chance to see how good Dominique Wilkins was and that it's only now, in my early forties that I discover that clearly. I always knew that he was a wonderfully gifted dunker but I wasn't aware that he was also a very good player. That's the shock I received recently from watching Wilkins closely. So I asked myself why people (and myself) only remember him as a crazy dunker, forgetting that he was also a great player? So I looked closely and I think I found the reason why. In term of game he was good but he wasn't special. In NBA history there has always been players with good game, having also good shooting abilities. So when you have a good game it's still very good but since there are so many people with the same characteristic, it's kind of logical that people forget this aspect concerning certain players. And the other thing explaining why people forgot his good game is that he was too good as a dunker. In the art of dunk, Wilkins is unique in the history of the NBA. I've never seen a man dunking with such high fury and energy. I mean he is above Shawn Kemp in this field. And his way of puting in-game dunks by pumping the ball (puting the ball high, then at the level of his belly then high again to dunk it) or puting it on his side all that to dodge defenders, are unique masterpieces to me. Those things are very difficult because they ask for high physical condition (specially muscles of the abs and flancks) and I just can't get enough of them. The only small disappointment I had while watching him is that he wasn't a glider like MJ and Drexler; he often tookoff near the rim unlike Michael Jordan, Drexler... who often tookoff further. Despite this small remark, Dominique Wilkins is really an unbelievable athlete in the history of the NBA and I'm so happy to better know his greatness. During all those years I was always wondering if he was that special. Now I know that yes, he was. In term of game he wasn't as special as MJ or Grant Hill (just to illustrate) who were crazy both in term of game and in the field of dunk, but with his unique energy and type of dunks he will never be forgotten and deserves much credits for his talent. PS: I say thank you very much to all those people who allow basketball lovers like me to correct their shortcomings.

10:30 - 16:30 - 19:57 these three Jordan dunks are my favourite, the way his head almost touches the ring at 10:30 & the way he changes directions in mid flight at 16:30 is phenomenal, but the free throw line dunk at 19:58 decimates all dunks that came before or after, Air Jordan takes off like a goddamn F-16 & is as graceful as a ballerina & the shock wave afterwards leaves us all in awe.

Being in Chicago I think the judges were under enormous pressure and stress w this one. Dominique got shorted and that's why.
La verdad la ultima clavada de Dominick a dos manos tenia mínimo 49. Al colocarle 45 lo perjudicaron para favorecer a Jordán. Wilkins hizo clavadas espectaculares y no parecía esforzarse , en cambio Jordán tuvo que agarrar impulso en algunas.

When you're 6 ft 9 having your head at The rim isn't that impressive actually I'm sure Dominique could have done that 58 when he was younger probably not super impressive but if you look at the pro-dunk leagues just like 10 years ago there was a guy named t dubs 5'9 the guys got a 50 plus inch vertical and the current crop of guys there is a few one guy at five six that can get his head level so this isn't that impressive when you look at the pro dunking circuit
