Miles Bridges plays above the rim, and now the former Spartan will show his skills in the 2019 NBA Dunk Contest.

Bridges will represent the Hornets during the 2019 All-Star Weekend in Charlotte. The Spectrum Center will be explosive as the Hornets fans get to show the rest of the NBA what they see on a nightly basis.

Bridges has been a fan favorite to compete in the Dunk Contest this year, with some fans going far enough to start social media campaigns to get him in. Multiple sources are confirming that Bridges will be on the roster.

Bridges competing in the dunk contest is no surprise for anyone from Michigan. We were able to watch him wreck rims with Michigan State for the last couple of years. There has been no official announcement of any 2019 dunk participants yet, but you can follow all the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend news here. NBA All-Star Weekend happens February 15th-17th.


Just check out some of the highlight videos below, and I think you'll agree that Bridges should be going in as the early favorite.
