This year, the Indiana Pacers' Paul George and Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Derrick Williams will be battling it out to take home the NBA Dunk Contest crown. The two have taken this season by storm, putting up solid numbers  for their teams.

George is putting up 12.1 points and 5.5 rebounds per game while playing 31 minutes per game.

George has also featured a plethora of dunk contest-worthy slams on the year, as there is no shortage of the George dunks on SportsCenter's Top 10.
