Slam Dunk Contest: Kenny 'Sky'Walker

Watch all the Dunks

In this edition appeared the tenths in the scores and the semifinal was decreased to 2 dunks per player. There was an unequal final between Clyde Drexler (who fail his two dunks and didn't want to do the third) and Kenny Walker, who won with a great final.

3 Point Shootout: Dale Ellis

Dale Ellis could win. He took advantage of Larry Bird's absence, and won his first contest with a regular series. NBA invited to Rimas Kurtinaitis, probably the best european shooter in the 80's. He finished in the last place, maybe too much distance for him.
