Remembering Orlando Woolridge, A Dunk Contest History Maker

By: 06.01.12

Another from the archives is a dunk by Woolridge, then a Nugget, dunking on Will Perdue and Stacy King on his former Bulls squad.

I wrote earlier that Woolridge was the high flying dunker in Chicago right before Jordan made everyone forget everyone else to ever slam in a Chicago uniform. This video, from a game in Milwaukee, is a pretty apt showing of that transition (literally) from Woolridge to Jordan, who dishes to the big man on the break.
