After a few years judging the best dunkers in the world in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown contests and a summer of finding the most “Uncontainable” ballers in the world, LeBron and Nike are introducing the “Nike+ Dunk Showcase” where LeBron and a bunch of NBA players will announce and then judge a new dunk challenge each week for high flyers with the Hyperdunks to perform and then submit to the GameOnWorld website.

Nike+ Basketball measures how high, how hard and how quick players compete. Players competing in the Nike+ Basketball Dunk Showcase must wear the Nike Hyperdunk+ shoe, which is connected to the Nike+ Basketball mobile application. After recording a Showcase Mode video within the Nike+ Basketball app, consumers will then upload their dunks to YouTube and submit them via the Game On, World site.
Each week, the pro athlete that issued the challenge will announce the winner, who will win a spot in the final 16. The five remaining finalists will be chosen during Live Dunk Showcases at the Festival of Sport in China (August 23) and in Berlin (August 27), as well as wild cards from the United States, Europe and China. Lebron James will be the official judge for the Nike+ Global Dunk Showcase Finals.
