Utah was boomin’

The stars were out in Salt Lake City for NBA All-Star weekend that brought out Usher, Floyd Mayweather, Jonathan Majors, Rick Ross, Chris Tucker, 21 Savage, DJ Khaled, Post Malone, Gabrielle Union, Burna Boy, Tems, Druski, and many more who appeared to enjoy the festivities as much as one can in Utah.

One star in particular who really enjoyed themselves was Janelle Monáe who had a timeeee playing in the all-star celebrity game.

There also was the unexpected rise of Mac McClung who put on a show as the most unlikely winner of the slam dunk contest since Spud Webb in 1986.

The high-flying guard only had TWO games of NBA experience under his belt during short stints with the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls. Now, he’s the hottest name in the league after wowing the crowd with his dazzling array of dunks.

Earlier this week, McClung was signed to a two-day contract by the Philadelphia 76ers before dominating the dunk contest as a virtually unknown player.

“It kind of feels, ever since the beginning, I was the underdog,” said McClung in an interview with ESPN. “Just proving yourself right, not others wrong, it brings a little more satisfaction.”

Three of Mac’s four dunks earned him straight 50s by the panel of judges who were blown away by McClung’s seemingly impossible dunks at only 6’2.”

Naturally, social media exploded with hilarious reactions to McClung’s victory that easily won All-Star weekend.
