2012 NBA SLAM DUNK CONTEST

Saturday February 25, Amway Center, Orlando

Slam Dunk Videos | Slam Dunk Winners | All Time Results | All Time Contestants

Utah Jazz forward Jeremy Evans won what in my opinion was a very weak Slam Dunk Contest, but he was the contestant with the highest fan support between more than 3 millions 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.
