Nothing Zach LaVine did for the Dunk Contest’s remainder would surprise after his world-ending first slam – unless he did the seemingly impossible and topped that instant classic effort, of course. And the Minnesota Timberwolves rookie might have actually done it.
Our one issue with this beautiful behind-the-back jam? It almost seemed too easy. But when that nit becomes the one to pick with LaVine’s aerial antic, it certainly means he’s done something very, very right.
The question now: Can the 19 year-old best this slam? LaVine might have already proven a negative response wrong.
