Dunk Day is the day to show off your dunks! Designated by HolidaySmart as an Inspiration Holiday. The date is in honor of Michael Jordan, who was born on this day and who inspired generations of dunkers. Established by Patti Jewel, a single mother of 3 boys who grew up with a passion for basketball, and loved dunking and holding dunk contests.
Get out and showcase your Michael Jordan dunks! You don't have to be a basketball player to do it. Have a dunk contest at work, in your office, with friends and family, in your home, anywhere! All you have to do it find something to dunk and something to dunk it into! Have fun and be inspired.
And for all those serious players, this is the day for basketball players of all levels to have fun and be creative with your dunks. Get out and practice your dunks, have a dunk contest with your friends, or host a dunk contest at your gym.
