A number of NBA stars are taking part in the #NBA Summer Hoops event on Saturday in Georgia, where they will compete in a dunk contest.
The NBA Summer Hoop, which is set to take place from June 11-13, will feature a handful of NBA players competing for a chance to play in the dunk contest in front of fans and the public.
The event, which has previously been held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, has raised some $5 million for charity over the past five years, according to NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
The dunk contest is one of the highlights of the event, and the event has also become an event for NBA players to showcase their skills on a variety of basketball court surfaces.
Last year, the NBA Players Association teamed up with the Georgia Basketball Association to raise funds for charity.
