With the 2008 Slam Dunk Contest just around the corner, we decided to rank the top 10 contest dunks of all time! See who made the list!

#10. Dwight Howard :: 2007

This spectacular dunk didn't get a high score from the judges, but it was one of the most incredible dunks ever. In the 2007 Slam Dunk Contest in Vegas, Dwight Howard took an alley-oop pass from his teammate, then he slapped the top of the backboard with his left hand while dunking the ball with his right hand! He also displayed good showmanship. While slapping his hand on the backboard, he put a sticker of his face on the glass! Check it out!

#9. Isaiah Rider :: 1994

While he was a knucklehead on and off the court, Isaiah "JR" Rider was once one of the most spectacular dunkers in the history of the NBA. As a rookie, he did the "East Bay Funk Dunk" in front of his hometown fans in Minneapolis during the 1994 Slam Dunk Contest. His between the legs dunk, was the first time the amazingly difficult dunk was ever completed! Check it out!

#8. Jason Richardson :: 2003

In the 2003 Dunk Contest in Atlanta, Jason Richardson pulled out one of the most creative between the legs dunk ever! On his final attempt, the former Golden State Warrior alley-ooped himself from the baseline, then caught the ball mid-air, put it through his legs from behind him, then dunked it backwards with his left hand! Check it out!

#7. Dominique Wilkins :: 1988

Battling Michael Jordan in the finals of the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest in Chicago, 'Nique tossed the ball high off the backboard, caught it and threw it down hard with his right hand. Dominique got extra high on this jam - he must have caught the ball above the box before dunking it! Check it out!

#6. Nate Robinson :: 2006

On the 20th anniversary of Spud Webb's historic Slam Dunk Contest championship, New York Knicks' pint-sized guard, Nate Robinson, paid homage to Spud by jumping over him! In front of a packed Houston crowd in 2006, the 5'7" Spud bounced the ball and the 5'9" Robinson jumped over him while catching the ball, then slammed it home! Check it out!

#5. Dee Brown :: 1991

Pump it up Dee! In the 1991 Slam Dunk Contest in Charlotte, NC, former Boston Celtic Dee Brown wowed the crowd with this no look, left-handed jam! Before each dunk, Dee pumped up his shoes to get that extra hangtime! Check it out!

#4. Vince Carter :: 2000

Whoa, what did he just do? That is what everyone in the Oakland audience said, when Vince Carter stuck his arm in the rim after dunking it in the 2000 Slam Dunk Contest. Vince proved you don't need a [KWLINK 6241]trampoline[/KWLINK[/b] to do circus-style dunks! Check it out!

#3. Spud Webb :: 1986

Who says small men can't dunk? Spud Webb, who is 5'7" made proved that size didn't matter during the 1986 Slam Dunk Contest. On his final attempt, Spud alley-ooped himself then jumped and caught the ball before reverse dunking it! Check it out!

#2. Michael Jordan :: 1988

Michael Jordan's nickname is "Air Jordan" and in the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest in his hometown Chicago, Jordan proved why. In one of the best dunk-offs in the history of the contest between him and Dominique Wilkins, MJ took off from the free-throw line and glided in for a poster-worthy, one-hand slam! Check it out!

#1. Vince Carter :: 2000

On Vince's first attempt during that historic 2000 Slam Dunk Contest, he pulled off the first reverse 360 ever! Not only did he do a reverse 360 turn, he also windmilled the ball! The crowd almost lost their minds after Vincanity pulled this one out! Check it out!
