Zach LaVine Wins All Star Dunk Contest
Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Zach LaVine wowed Madison Square Garden when he went between the legs for this amazing first-round jam and scored a perfect 50.
LaVine, 19, is the first Timberwolves player to win the dunk contest since Isaiah Rider in 1994 and also the first player with multiple individual dunks with perfect scores in the same contest since Dwight Howard in 2009.
As he told ESPN:
“I’m still on cloud nine. I feel like I’m dreaming. Seeing all the dunk contests and people hoisting the trophy, I just saw myself do it and lived it, so it’s a dream come true. I’m glad my family is here to witness it and go through it.”
