The past few Slam Dunk Contests have been mediocre to say the least. They have had an over-abundance of props and have had minimal creativity. The 2013 Slam Dunk Contest, however, featured an exceptional blend of mid-air creativity, high-flying leapers and only modest use of props.

Terrence Ross, the eventual winner of the contest, brought back the feel of an early 2000s Slam Dunk Contest. His dunks were simple, yet creative and celebrated. The other contestants also performed a variety of incredible dunks, and sometimes we don't realize how difficult they are because the expectations are so high.

Even TNT analyst Kenny Smith predicted beforehand that this Slam Dunk Contest might be one of the 10 best of all time. 

Now that the contest is over, we're the judges who will determine if this was truly one of the best of all time.
