For this Throwline Thursday we take a thrilling journey down memory lane, revisiting one of the most iconic moments in slam dunk history.

Jason Richardson 2003 NBA Slam Dunk Contest

We're transported back to the year 2003 when former Golden State Warriors shooting guard, Jason Richardson, etched his name into the annals of NBA Slam Dunk Contest greatness.

For die-hard fans of '90s and early 2000s basketball, this period was particularly challenging for the Golden State Warriors. After a string of disappointing seasons and finishing last in the Pacific Division during the 2000-2001 season, the team was desperately in need of a change of fortune. Enter Jason Richardson, the man destined to be their saviour.

While Richardson's ascent to stardom began with his first-ever NBA Slam Dunk Contest victory in 2002, it was his electrifying encore in 2003 that truly stole the spotlight. Locked in a fierce battle for the crown against the formidable Desmond Mason, Richardson soared to victory with a mesmerising display of athleticism.

What made Richardson's victory all the more spectacular was his remarkable consistency. He clinched a perfect score of 50 in three out of the four rounds, not only leaving the judges in awe but also captivating the Atlanta crowd that had gathered to witness this breathtaking spectacle.

Let’s relive this history-making moment below:
