NBA Nation will be rolling into Atlanta this weekend, joining the celebration surrounding the Atlanta Jazz Festival at Piedmont Park.

Included in NBA Nations traveling spectacle will be a high-flying dunk contest that will be judged by two of the all-time greatest rim-rockers in NBA history. Here are the details:

Sprite and the NBA are touring the country in search of the best amateur dunker, and Atlanta is the next stop in their quest. If last year’s competition is any indication, area dunkers will showcase some extremely impressive skills, including Tomahawks, Windmills, Alley Oops … and maybe even something no one has seen before.

The competition is open to all local dunkers ages 18 and up and will be judged by a panel that includes Atlanta Hawks legend Dominique “The Human Highlight Film” Wilkins and NBA legend Darryl “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins.

The first-place winner will receive $1,000 and a chance to compete for $10,000 and the title at the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown Finals. The runner-up will receive $500.

The Sprite Slamdunk Showdown at NBA Nation will start promptly at 4pm.
Get there early to post up for the best view of the action.
