   RECAP
Though Michael Jordan participated in just three Slam Dunk contests, his high-flying heroics and unprecedented creativity will forever link Jordan to the All-Star Saturday classic. The winner of the 1987 and 1988 contests and the runner-up in the 1985 competition, Michael became a crowd favorite at the Slam Dunk Contests with his tongue-hanging showmanship and free-throw line takeoffs.
