The 2006 Slam Dunk Contest was one the most entertaining editions of the event. The result though in some eyes, was controversial. Andre Iguodala, an athletic forward from the 76ers took on the 5'9" Nate Robinson of the New York Knicks. The pair put on quite the show on a memorable night in Houston.

Iguodala delivered by far the best dunk of the night in the first round when he caught an Allen Iverson pass from behind the glass while gliding under the rim and throwing in a reverse slam on the other side. He then ran off the court and down the tunnel to signal that it was over. He then had a behind the back, hand-to-hand transfer dunk in the final round to send the crowd into a frenzy.

Robinson though, not to be outdone, caught a bounce pass from Spud Webb and dunked over the 5'7" dunk contest legend to complete one of the more iconic dunks in the competition's history. He then performed an unthinkable transfer of the ball between each leg before passing the ball with his left hand off the glass in mid-air, then catching it for the throw down to win the contest on quite a controversial final decision.
