At only 21 years of age, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine is only getting started in his NBA career, but he’s already a household name thanks to his dunk talents. In February, LaVine became just the fourth NBA player in history to win back-to-back NBA Slam Dunk Contests, and while nothing is official, we can hope (and pray) that he’ll be back in 2017 to go for the trifecta. After all, if he truly believes that he and Aaron Gordon split the trophy, despite LaVine having the better (and near perfect) overall score, and if Gordon truly believes that he could have prepared more to hang with LaVine, then they owe it to us to return and put on another show for the ages.
So, it’s safe to assume that Andrew Wiggins was teasing LaVine’s next Slam Dunk Contest appearance when he shared the above video on Snapchat. Otherwise, it could mean that LaVine is always dunking like this in practice and he’s being a selfish jerk by not sharing every dunk with us. In the meantime, let’s all be like this hero and nitpick LaVine’s efforts, so we can force him to be perfect. We must shame LaVine to be better than our expectations!
