Dunk competition for any ring fan known for his deadly performances on the belt. Over the years, top players like Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Zach LaVine, Aaron Gordon and others have set records for matches and competitions. However, as we approached the much-anticipated Dunk 2022 Competition, fans inside and outside the stadium were left interested as all four of these players performed beyond expectations.
Be it Cole Anthony, Obi Toppin, Jalen Green or Juan Toscano – all four of these entrants don’t just have multiple retakes for each of their jumps. But it is not possible to register a person who shouted 50 points to be applauded by the crowd. Even Dwayne Wade and Reggie Miller have to comment that “This Dunk Contest is a 6 contest”.
Obi Toppin Wins NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest 2022
The contest starts with Cole Anthony created a lot of hype when his dad gave him Mountain Boots to dance. But after some rework, it looks like the Dunk Contest vibe has been killed off. In the first round, Jalen Green of the Houston Rockets failed to produce a dunk on more than 6 attempts, presumably ending the event.
However, there was good news for New York Knicks fans as Obi Toppin finally got his hands on the silver trophy, defeating Juan Toscano in the final round. Safe to say, it was quite the opposite of the showdown that formed the Dunk Contest in 2016 starring Zach LaVine and Aaron Gordon.

With that said, the event marks the end of Day 2 of the All-Star weekend as all eyes will now be on the final showdown of the big guns, against each other on Sunday. Who will win? Can LeBron James extend his streak to 5 games as captain? Or will Kevin Durant’s lesser team make heat waves by beating the favorites? Still being watched.
