Although the NBA Slam Dunk Contest doesn't take place until later tonight, the biggest fireworks of All-Star Weekend might have taken place last night at the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown. The event brought together four of America's top amateur dunkers for a contest judged by J. Cole, Darryl Dawkins and LeBron James. 

Kenny "K-Dobbs" Dobbs eventually won the Showdown, wowing the crowd with a series of spectacular dunks. One in particular, a blindfolded-catch-between-the-legs-over-three-people flush, sent us all into our best Duke Tango impersonations. The dunk, celebrating the 1992 contest winning dunk by Cedric Ceballos from the last All-Star game in Orlando, will surely be difficult to top by tonight's professionals.
