One of the most popular manga in the history of manga! Winning isn't everything in basketball, but who wants to come in second? It takes dedication and discipline to be the best, and the Shohoku High hoops team wants to be just that—the best. They have one last year to make their captain's dream of reaching the finals come true—will they do it? Takehiko Inoue's legendary basketball manga is finally here, and the tale of a lifetime is in your hands!

He may be a pain in the butt, but Hanamichi's athletic prowess and monstrous strength have not gone unnoticed by the captain of Shohoku's judo team. Hoping to take his troupe to a national title, the judo captain is willing to go to great lengths to lure Hanamichi away from the court and get him on the sparring mat. Will out-and-out bribery convince Hanamichi that judo's the way to go, or will he stay a basketball man to the very end?

    One of the funniest mangas out there

    Slam dunk had me hooked from the beginning it had gorgeously drawn guys, absorbing storyline, plots,twists and action. When it was funny it was hilarious and when it was sad it made me cry. It's about friendship, romance, competition and gorgeous guys. It got better and better as the story went on and the manga is just the same!! So what are you waiting for?? Go get a copy today!!!!!
