One such event is the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown featuring amateur dunk contestants from around the country. Ten semi-finalists have been chosen out of hundreds of contestants, and now the fans will choose who will move on to compete in the championship
Fans are encouraged to visit the site nba.com/dunk to watch videos of the ten semi-finalists, and then vote for their favorite two dunkers before August 12th. The four semi-finalists with the most online votes will be chosen to compete for a chance to win $10,000 in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown Championship in 2012.
