Mike Purdie beats Chidi Bang in the 2012 LA Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown


For the past 2 years the winner of the LA Showdown went on to win the entire Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown Championship at All-Star weekend.  This year each stop on the tour is it’s own “Best of the City Championship” packaged along with the Sprite Uncontainable Event which will send a bunch of participants to All-Star weekend in Houston 2013 to play for either LeBron James or Kobe Bryant.

The dunk contest didn’t have the big names that the past LA Showdown’s had but it still featured some impressive performances and dunks by winners Mike Purdie (1st), Chidi Bang (2nd) and Poster Boy (3rd).  YouTube sensation Daniel Hyde also competed and threw down a few nice dunks.

Arguably the best highlight at every Showdown is the dunk exhibitions by the Sprite Showdown & Uncontainable All-Stars Reemix, Sir Issac, G-Smith & Caution.  Check out the video above to see all the best dunks.
