Gerald Green 2013 Dunk Contest Video: 2007 Champ With Off-The-Backboard, Double Clutch Slam

Gerald Green opened the 2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest in electrifying fashion.

After his Indiana Pacers teammate Lance Stephenson bounced a pass off the side of the backboard, Green caught the ball in mid-air, double clutched and then threw down a two-handed jam.

On Twitter, the first dunk of the contest proved to be a crowd pleaser.

Green's second attempt would not prove as successul and the 2007 champ would fail to advance to the finals.

Here are the rest of the dunks from the 2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest:
