It wasn’t that long ago that Blake Griffin was an NBA All-Star Weekend fixture, but these days the former No. 1 overall pick is toiling away in Detroit as a member of the Pistons. Griffin has appeared in only 38 games over the last two seasons. Despite good health at the moment, he’s been held out of competition recently as the team’s front office tries to find a taker for him and the $75 million-plus he is owed through the 21-22 season. Unsurprisingly, the team has run into some difficulty finding a trade partner, making a buyout the likeliest of scenarios. That may actually be the best outcome for the soon-to-be 32-year-old power forward as a buyout would allow him to choose the team that he feels can best help him return to form.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. The NBA first held its annual Slam Dunk Contest in 1984, and in that time there have been 35 winners, including Griffin back in 2011. So with that in mind, how many of the 35 can you name in five minutes?
