With the annual NBA Dunk Contest set to take place on Saturday at 8PM on TNT, I wanted to share my favorite dunks, performed by the best dunkers of all-time. My list of the best dunkers includes: Julius Erving, Michael Jordan, Vince Carter, and Dominique Wilkins.

1. Julius Erving is arguably the best dunker of all-time. Erving won three NBA championships, four MVP awards. Erving set the golden standard for signature dunks. He is known for dunking from the foul line. Check out of one his signature dunks below.

2. Michael Jordan is the best basketball player of all-time. Jordan earned five MVPs, six NBA championship, and is known for his signature “Air Jordan” apparel line. Jordan followed Erving’s signature dunk series by implementing variations from foul line dunks.

3. Vince Carter is the most exciting dunker of the modern era. Vincesanity is known for high-flying, rim shaking dunks. Carter is best known for this dunk, seen in the 2000 NBA Dunk Contest

4. Dominique Wilkins is “The Human Highlight Reel”. Wilkins, a two-time Dunk Contest Champion, is known for his epic Dunk Contest battles against Michael Jordan.

Who do you think rivals these four dunkers?
