Sprite And NBA Look For Best Amateur Dunker

  • September 2, 2010
Sprite is sponsoring the last leg of a nationwide NBA contest to pick top amateur dunkers. The final element has consumers voting on 10 Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown semifinalists selected from a national contest at NBA's experiential road show, or who submitted their best dunking footage online. Fans will select their favorite four finalists to compete at the second annual Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown, which takes place in Feb. at NBA All-Star 2011 in Los Angeles.

Consumer voting is at NBA.com/dunk, which has videos of each of the 10 semifinalists' dunks. The winner will receive a $10,000 grand prize and attend the Sprite Slam Dunk contest at Staples Center during NBA All-Star Saturday Night presented by State Farm on Feb. 19 next year.

Competitions were held in eight major U.S. cities during May, June, and July at NBA Nation presented by T-Mobile and Kia Motors. Consumers selected one winner from each of the eight cities via SMS text voting.

Sprite has been Official Soft Drink of the NBA since 1994.
