I think everyone can agree that dunk contests in the 90s and early 2000s were a lot better than the contests now. All the objects that are used now have ruined the contest. The dunk contest used to be about all natural dunks that have the best style. Now it’s all about jumping over cars.
This video comes from the early 90’s where Deion “Primetime” Sanders, Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Conley Sr. have a little fun and have a competitive dunk contest. These dunks are ALL better than any dunks that are performed in contests nowadays. At the end of the video, there is a little appearance of baby Mike Conley Jr., who plays for the Grizzlies now.
