Rookie Smith New Dunk King
Behind some stellar dunks, Phoenix's Amaré Stoudemire and Atlanta rookie Josh Smith found themselves in the finals of the Sprite Rising Stars Slam Dunk, with Smith recording consecutive 50s to take the title as the NBA's hottest dunker.

For his last throwdown, Smith elevated with a 360-degree jam.
