HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — The polls are still open but time is running out for you to vote in this summer’s Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown.
We’re trying to identify the best dunkers in the land by trimming that list of semifinalists to four finalists. The winner earns the title as the best amateur dunker in the nation, a lofty title by most anyone’s standard.
(Do you really think dunk legends like Dominique Wilkins and Darryl Dawkins would be involved if this wasn’t serious business?)
That’s why we have to admit to being more than just a little amped up about this summer’s Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown. Now it’s up to us, the dunk-loving public, to pick the four finalists chasing the crown of the best amateur dunker in the land.
Without a summer league to speak of and no highlights to be found, the work these semifinalists have put in is the best elixir for those of us in need of a high-flying/acrobatic dunk cure. So check them out and vote so we can watch them square off for the title in Orlando during All-Star Weekend.
And for the record, if Zach “Jonsey” Jones and Brandon “Werm” Lacue don’t make the top four, we’ll be petitioning the good folks Sprite for a recount.
Remember, the polls close Aug. 12, so hurry up and vote.
