The 2022 NBA Slam Dunk Contest was … underwhelming to say the least.
On Saturday night at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, the annual All-Star Weekend event was captured by New York Knicks’ second-year forward Obi Toppin.
In between the conclusion, there were a plethora of missed dunks from the field of competitors. The criticism surrounding the event was loud, even deafening online and on television. It was clear that many fans were not happy with the product that has been on the decline since the epic 2016 showdown between Zach Lavine and Aaron Gordon.
