Slam Dunk Contest 2012 Video: Paul George Debuts The 'Tron' Dunk

Paul George took a few attempts to make his first dunk and needed to switch it up to jump over Roy Hibbert, but he got incredibly creative on his second dunk and made his dunk on the first try. In a dunk contest first, George brought out some black lights to light his path, then had the fine folks at the Amway Center shut off all of the lights in the building. This revealed some interesting props.

When the lights went out, George's glow in the dark jersey and a glow in the dark ball was revealed. The arena played the music from 'Tron' to set the mood. The dunk itself was solid, if not quite as spectacular as the theatrics.

Though it's not quite as spectacular in execution as some of the Vince Carter and Jason Richardson dunks that were similarly styled, the finish was a good one.
