This is easily the most incredible basketball shot I've ever seen. I watched the 1988 Dunk contest live on television - and that was the night Michael Jordan cemented himself as the greatest player in the game.

He could score 50 points a night every night, but NOTHING blew people away like the graceful way he jumped 8 feet off the ground and soared towards the net like an eagle.

Both the Slam Dunk contest and the unspoken battle the athletes had to prove who was the best, was over. Nobody will EVER top Jordan, and I'll never forget the night he became THE Air Man.

I Love This Dunk.

Oh boy, do I remember this dunk!

Actually, this was probably one of the greatest NBA slam-dunk contests ever. Michael Jordan's creativity against Dominique Wilkins' sheer power. What a great contest.

There are others who can take off and dunk from the free throw line, but no one has ever made it look this cool.

I mean, Michael has the legs bent, the left arm back and the basketball cocked and ready to be dunked. It literally looks like he's flying to the basket.

I can remember how the fans went absolutely crazy when Michael was walking to the far end of the basketball court preparing for this dunk. And then they went even crazier after this dunk.

It was one of the greatest dunks of all-time, and certainly one of the best basketball pictures ever.
