Which basketball players do you think should be showcasing their high-flying skills at the 2003 NBA Slam Dunk Contest? Vote for your favorite dunkers on Kidzworld's online poll.

It's the play that makes crowds jump to their feet, players jump from their benches and people who are watching at home jump off the couch and yell, "Holy crap, did you see that?" It's the slam dunk - the most electrifying and exciting play in basketball. Whether it's a power dunk that nearly breaks the backboard or an acrobatic aerial maneuver where the player twists and turns in the air, a slam dunk gets players and fans fired up and can change the momentum of the game.

NBA's 2003 Slam-Dunk Contest

Jason Richardson, Desmond Mason and Corey Magette are three of the dunkmasters you could be seeing at the NBA's 2003 Slam-Dunk Contest.
Jason Richardson Desmond Mason Corey Magette

Jason Richardson - The guy known as J-Rich won the 2002 NBA Slam-Dunk Title by bounce passing the ball to himself, then taking the rock to the rack with a reverse-twist jam. Will Jason Richardson have the riches to defend his dunking title in 2003?

Corey Maggette - Corey is one of the few players worth cheering for on the LA Clippers. He can jump nearly three-and-a-half feet off the ground which allows him to change direction and hang in mid-air for what seems like several seconds before throwing the ball down with authority.

Desmond Mason - The Seattle Supersonics forward won the 2001 Slam-Dunk Contest with his no-look dunk over a teammate. Since then, Mason has attempted dunks over the Space Needle and Safeco Field but has come up a bit short. Look for Desmond Mason to be among the highest flyers and hardest dunkers in 2003.

1 They need to put Kedrick Brown of the Boston Celtics in the dunk contest. He was supposed to be in it last year but hurt his ankle. He probably has the highest vertical in the league

    I think most people will say hitting. But what's your favorite hitting or fielding?!?!

    Knowing the work that goes into it, it's most definitely a sport. The tumbling, lifting, dancing, and other aspects all require strength and skill.
