John Wall of the Washington Wizards has some insane hops, luckily for the fans of the NBA universe this particular dunking phenom is a contestant for the Sprite Slam Dunk contest.

The 23-year-old point guard currently measures at around 6 ft 4, which is smaller than the usual participants of the Dunk contest, but Wall makes up for it with his incredible leaping ability which I'm sure will be showcased during All-Star weekend.

Most of the dunks that Wall manages to get in-game are of the fast-break variety, a lot of what we can see in game can translate to the Dunk contestant.

Competition for the Dunk title is as strong as the NBA has seen for a very long time, for the first time in 26 years there will be three All-Stars competing in the dunk contest, they are: Wall, Paul George of the Pacers and Damian Lillard of the Trail Blazers.

John Wall has had his fair share of spectacular in game dunks, he isn't afraid of a little challenge either.

Wall was in his second season with the Wizards, he had been invited to the Rising Stars Challenge game where he was selected for Charles Barkley's squad. Towards the end of the game when the players were showing off to the crowd, John Wall attempted to showcase his dunking prowess..

then his happened.

Wall pronounced that he would have his revenge by attempting to dunk on Monroe when the Wizards play the Pistons.

Then on the 18th of January, Wall got his chance.

So we've seen high flying dunks, posterising finishes and finesse throw downs from Wall. All it means is that were in for a real treat come the Sprite Slam Dunk contest.
