The British Basketball League delivered a first-of-its-kind show-stopping basketball dunk competition, brought to you by General Tire, at the top of The O2 to celebrate the countdown to the Play-Offs Finals, which take place there later this month.
A staggering 52 meters high on the iconic roof of The O2, surrounded by panoramic views of the capital’s skyline, a series of epic slam dunks from this year’s regular basketball season were recreated for the British Basketball League’s “Now You Know” Dunk Challenge.
A judging panel of experts were on hand to cast their verdict on which dunk would be crowned the BBL’s ‘Dunk of the Season’. The panel included WBBL board member Siobhan Prior, Behrad Bakhtiari and Denzel Kazembe from Simply British Ballers and leading basketball reporter Sam Neter from the dedicated British basketball website, Hoopsfix.
An expected capacity crowd of close to 17,000 fans are set to generate an electric atmosphere inside The O2 for the British Basketball League’s flagship event also set to be broadcast live on Sky Sports and YouTube from 1pm.
Fans are encouraged to vote for their favourite dunk from the season by using the #BritishDunks and #NowYouKnow.
The play-off final is set to thrill a sold out crowd at The O2 on Sunday 14 May and tickets are still available via the BBL website.
