Bill Simmons alleges 1988 dunk contest was rigged
In 1988, Michael Jordan beat out Dominique Wilkins for the Slam Dunk Contest title. But should the crown have went to Wilkins instead?
According to ESPN's Bill Simmons, the answer is yes because he claims the whole event was rigged. TMZ Sports caught up with the basketball junkie as he was browsing around Los Angeles for the ESPYs earlier this week and this is when Simmons dropped the bombshell.
Simmons also tried to explain why LeBron James and Blake Griffin will never oppose each other in a dunk contest regardless of how much money is thrown out them.
As for the claim about the '88 dunk contest, is it blaspehmy or does is it warranted?
