You can't be a judge in this year's Sprite Slam Dunk contest without being one of the greatest dunkers to ever break the laws of gravity. Dr. J sent everyone reeling in 1976. Michael Jordan wowed the sweet hometown Chicago crowd in 1988 to defend his crown. No one threw down a windmill like two-time winner Dominique Wilkins. Kobe Bryant made jaws drop in 1997. And when Vince Carter went between his legs in 2000, the judges fell to their knees as the fans and other NBA All-Stars lept to their feet.

But these guys weren't just show-stoppers on All-Star Weekend. They could throw it down with force and authority in the heat of NBA competition. We've compiled a Top 10 for each of this year's judges. And to show you how great they are, we have another list of their best of the best.
