Bolt's spectacular 'slam-dunk' steals the show during NBA celebrity game.

Washington, Feb 17 ( ANI ): Sprint star Usain Bolt added a highlight more reminiscent of Dominique Wilkins than Carl Lewis to his resume on Friday, as he stole the show at a basketball game with a spectacular slam-dunk during a NBA celebrity game.

Playing for the East squad in the Celebrity Game in Houston, Bolt got out in transition in the final minute of the first quarter, and snagging a high pass with his right hand, the 6' 5" sprinter controlled the ball and then rose up for a two-handed slam, the Huffington Post reports.

While the Celebrity Game during NBA All-Star Weekend isn't exactly the proving ground for all-time greats, it was still impressive to see the rangy Bolt get out and run the floor, the paper said.

The 26-year-old Jamaican opened his 2013 season with a rare run at 400 meters and has talked about expanding his program for the 2016 Olympics in Rio, the paper reported. ( ANI )
