Do you live in the city? Is your favorite Dad an NBA fan? If so, there is a great event that you should take him to on Saturday. The NBA, Sprite and Lebron James are hosting a Slam Dunk Showdown at the South Street Seaport this Saturday the 19th of June. The Showdown is all about finding the best amateur dunkers in the area and taking them to compete against other non-pro, non-collegiate dunkers across the country.
Fans can compete in the Showdown by submitting videos online of themselves dunking and/or vote for their favorite dunkers on NBA.com/dunk. A cool twist is fan votes will help select the winners at each event as well as the top user submitted dunk videos online. Top dunkers will win cash prizes and have a chance to compete at NBA All-Star weekend in 2011.
You can find more details about the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown, upcoming events and how to register for a competition on their Facebook page, Twitter account or at NBA.com/dunk.
