21 years after Isaiah “JR” Rider threw down the East Bay Funk Dunk in the 1994 NBA Dunk Contest, we will be celebrating the evolution of the #EastBayFunkDunk with an epic dunk contest on October 24th at the American Sports Center in Anaheim, CA.
The live streamed contest will feature 8 of the best dunkers in the world – Guy Dupuy, Lipek, Kenny Dobbs, Porter Maberry, Justin Darlington, Jon Clark, Mike Purdie and Sir Issac – and some exciting surprises and twists to the traditional dunk contest format.
The event will be streamed live at Eastbay.com/FunkDunk. Stay tuned for more information about the event and features on each of the contestants.
Thanks to Dunkademics for the footage of Lipek and Jon Clark
