The Lineup: NBA's Dunk Contest Redemption

Reese WatersCorrespondent IIJuly 30, 2016

NBA All-Stars Paul George, Damian Lillard and John Wall headline the list of dunkers who will take part in Saturday's 2014 Slam Dunk Contest. Three All-Stars haven't participated in the Slam Dunk Contest since 1988, when Dominique Wilkins, Clyde Drexler and Michael Jordan shared the court as the supreme dunkers of their time.

After years of lackluster entrants and public anticipation, it looks like the annual contest has finally revived itself with top-tier players vying for the chip as best dunker.

Watch Reese Waters share his two cents on the participants and who he wants to take home the crown.

Which conference will win the contest, and who do you think will ultimately take the crown as the king of the air above the rim? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
