NBA High-Flyers Who Should Participate in the Slam Dunk Contest

When the 2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest participants were revealed, I wasn't surprised, but would've liked to see some bigger names. 

What happened to the days when we saw Michael Jordan, Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant, superstars of their era, participate in the contest?

It hasn’t been entertaining in years. We’ve seen remakes of the dunks of old and not many flashy dunks.

Matt Moore of CBSSports.com has declared the dunk contest dead.

In order to revive it, we need to see those prolific dunkers who will get us to jump out of our seats.

Due to the new format of three representatives from the East and three from the West, I have tailored this list in accordance. 

Now, with dunkers like these, fans will get back into it. In future years, this contest needs a couple of superstars to duke it out.
