The Interior Savings Western Canada Basketball Tournament has been going since 1974. In 1991 the Slam Dunk was introduced. Back then it was at the old KSS Gym and we stood against a wall just a yard from the floor. The Lizard mascot handed out stickers that would stay on lockers for years. Custodial staff loved it.
I recall seeing the event several times as the employee of another radio station in Kelowna. It was awesome. Power 104 stepped in when the Lizard dried up. Then the old KSS imploded a few years later but the tournament and Slam Dunk never took a break. Wendell Thomas solidified it by winning three years in a row 2003-2005. A KSS product through and through .
