When Atlanta owned the dunk contest
Perhaps you aren’t the only person who thinks the NBA All-Star dunk contest has lost its luster. As the self-appointed purveyor of all things nostalgic, I feel obligated to post this clip of the 1986 contest, which was waged between two Atlanta Hawks.
I still think that is awesome. My favorite part is Jordan’s reaction to Spud’s last dunk. I mean, Spud’s my height – 5’7″!! And ‘Nique was a living legend at that point.
And while I’m thinking about the 80’s, can I just say that I miss TBS and Andy Griffith re-runs during Braces rain delays? I wish Ted still owned the team.
Bah! Get off my lawn! Damn kids…..
