MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES: ZACH LaVINE

LaVine makes every dunk look effortless. His amazing vertical leap, mixed with his dunking height and long arms, enables him to make the most difficult dunks look routine. We can only hope that he returns to the dunk contest in 2016 to defend his title.

Attributes:
-- Smooth
-- Creative
-- Crazy Bounce

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER: RUSSELL WESTBROOK

Not much needs to be said about Westbrook. His slam dunk highlights come on a nightly basis. Westbrook plays with a chip on his shoulder, and he dunks like the rim stole his lunch money. It is never a good idea to get in his way, because he will definitely put you on a poster.

Attributes:
-- Fearless
-- Angry
-- Explosive

PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS: DAMIAN LILLARD

Damian Lillard is known to posterize a defender or two, but he really got to showcase his bounce in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, throwing down a nasty between-the-legs dunk. Extremely talented, Lillard is always capable of splitting the defense and rising up for a slam.

Attributes:
-- Determined
-- Athletic
-- Highly-Skilled

DENVER NUGGETS: KENNETH FARIED

He is not called "Manimal" for nothing. Faried is a rare mix of size, athleticism and coordination. He is a hustler, who always finds his way to the rim to thrown down a monster dunk. Don't let the power fool you. He can get creative with it too, as seen with his off-the-backboard, between-the-legs dunk in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.

Attributes:
-- Manimal
-- Scary Athlete
-- Beast

UTAH JAZZ: TREVOR BOOKER

Trevor Booker is a solid role player for the Jazz, and he does not need plays run for him to make an impact. The same can be said for his dunks. Booker loves flying in for put-back jams, running the break for alley-oops or setting solid picks to roll to the basket for a slam.

Attributes:
-- Lefty
-- Mean
-- Aggressive
