WASHINGTON WIZARDS: JOHN WALL

John Wall, the 2014 Slam Dunk Contest champion, has a knack for electrifying slams. While his speed and ball-handling may stand out, his dunking ability puts him among the best in the league above the rim. Defenders better beware and keep their heads on a swivel or he will put them on posters real quick.

Attributes:
-- Speedy
-- Crafty
-- Electrifying

MIAMI HEAT: GERALD GREEN

Green may be the highest jumper in NBA history. He gets his head over the rim with relative ease, and he is able to sky off one or two feet. Despite missing a portion of his right ring finger, Green has no problem catching alley-oops from anywhere on the court.

Attributes:
-- Incredible Vertical
-- Video Game Hops
-- Not From This Planet

ORLANDO MAGIC: AARON GORDON

Although many people expect Victor Oladipo to claim this spot, Gordon has a large repertoire of dunks that just have not been put on display in the NBA yet. Hopefully, he will compete in the NBA Dunk Contest this season to showcase some of the dunks that he completed in high school. Until then, we will just have to watch him posterize opponents in games.

Attributes:
-- Deceptive
-- Innovative
-- Powerful
*Honorable Mention: Oladipo

ATLANTA HAWKS: JEFF TEAGUE

Jeff Teague is only 6-2, but you better not get in his way because he is known to embarrass people who try to stop him. Teague has a spring-loaded left leg that allows him to jump high from a far away distance.

Attributes:
-- Aggressive
-- Skilled
-- Quick
*Honorable Mention: Tim Hardaway Jr.

CHARLOTTE HORNETS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST

The Hornets do not get much national attention on TV, but the people in North Carolina know that "MKG" can pull off spectacular dunks. He has only been in the league three years, but he has already given us some memorable in-your-face dunks. Unfortunately, Kidd-Gilchrist tore his shoulder in the pre-season, so we will not be seeing any MKG jams for the next few months.

Attributes:
-- Fierce
-- Explosive
-- Confident
