Don’t Miss This Today: Eastbay Funk Dunk


Live from Anaheim, Cal., the first-ever #EastbayFunkDunk competition is going down today at 12:15 PST, and you don’t want to miss it. The world’s best dunkers will be competing for a $10,000 prize in three jaw-dropping, action-packed rounds. You can live stream this non-stop, dunktacular thrill ride at eastbay.com/funkdunk.

Don’t worry, you’ll be able to display your slam-dunking skills; we’re running a Funk Dunk contest so you can play, too! Here’s how it works: We’ll give you two weeks to send us your own personalized version of the Eastbay Funk Dunk in a 15-second video via Twitter or Instagram. The more creative the dunk, the better. However, you’ll need at least an 8-foot hoop or taller to qualify. Then, we’ll pick our five favorite dunks. From there, we’ll let our followers vote for the winner, who will then win basketball shoes for his or her entire squad!

Today kicks off with Open Gym Premier’s Halloween Classic tournament, presented by Ballislife, at 9 am PST, followed by the Funk Dunk competition. Once the champ is crowned, we’ll open up the Funk Dunk contest so you can show us your stuff! We’ll give you until 11/7 to send us your video, where the winner will be chosen by you, our fans, on 11/16.

Here are today’s dunkers and some of the jams they bring to the table:
