The NBA Dunk Contest is the most prestigious dunk contest of every year, but it’s probably not the best, since of course only NBA players can participate. The best dunkers in the world don’t actually play in the NBA. They are guys like Canada’s Justin “Jus Fly” Darlington and Jordan “Mission Impossible” Kilganon, Ukraine’s Dmitry “Smoove” Krivenko, Poland’s Rafal “Lipek” Lipinski, Kadour Ziani (aka “The Dunkfather”), America’s own Porter “What’s Gravity” Maberry and yes, another guy named Kristaps from Latvia: Kristaps “The Latvian Hulk” Dargais. How do we know? One of those cats has basically won every single dunk contest outside of the NBA over the last year, so time to pay attention.
That roster comes together to form Dunk Elite, the world’s most entertaining dunk team. In the exclusive video above, you’ll get unique access to the DE crew as they go through training camp in Morocco. Peep game.
