Washington Wizard John Wall was last year NBA All-Star Dunk Contest champion by fan voting.
The competition was really different than your typical Slam Dunk Contest. 6 players competed representing East & West conferences, first in a 'Freestyle Round' and later in a 'Battles Round'.
The outcome was very poor, one of the weakest contests I can remember, so I hope that in 2015 edition there will be some changes to bring back the excitement to the contest.
For the first time since 2012, the NBA Slam Dunk
Contest is back to a 4-contestants format.
There will be two dunks in the first round for each player. The two dunkers with the highest composite scores from the first round advance to the final round to make two more dunks.
Lot of potential with one rookie and three sophomores who are going to play in the NBA Rising Stars Game the day before the contest.
These are the Slam Dunk Contest judges: Julius Erving, Tiny Archibald, Bernard King, Chris Mullin and Walt Frazier.
