Right after the battle of Superman and Krypto-Nate destroyed the once peaceful and exciting NBA Slam Dunk Contest world, a few terrible bounces, a stuff toy, and a cool Kia Optima came into scene just to worsen the situation in the league's main attraction during February. Since that moment, the NBA has never been more desperate to find itself a savior at least for the show that caps wild Saturday nights.
Many tried, and they really tried hard, but colorful costumes and ornaments have been an informidable force that has wrapped the contest for several years now. The legions of NBA fans have been on their knees praying for a messiah that could bury everything in the past and open heaven's gate to a more nasty and entertaining slam dunk contest in the years to come. What they may want to see descending from the heavens may match these following names.
