2019 NBA Slam Dunk Contest: Live Highlights, Updates and Analysis

Invalid DateCharlotte, North Carolina

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Hamidou Diallo won the 2019 AT&T Slam Dunk contest to cap off a star-studded All-Star Saturday Night in Charlotte. In the first round, Diallo had the dunk of the night, leaping over Shaquille O'Neal for an elbow dunk. He played it fairly safe the rest of the way, as his competitor in the Finals, Dennis Smith of the New York Knicks, failed to even throw it down on numerous attempts. The other participants in this year's contest were Miles Bridges of the Charlotte Hornets and John Collins of the Atlanta Hawks. For highlights from throughout the contest, scroll below.
