UPDATE: Here’s a better video from our friends at BallisLife.com.
At the Seattle Pro-Am today, Zach LaVine won the 2015 NBA Slam Dunk championship, presented by… let’s just guess it’s still Sprite.
I’m having a hard time figuring out which one was my favorite dunk from this HoopMixTape Instagram. It could have been the off-the-bounce, around-the-back dunk. It could have been the off-the-backboard, 360 two-handed dunk. It could have been the off-the-bounce, between-the-legs dunk that made a regulation hoop look like the Nerf hoop I had in my bedroom. It could have been the cup-the-ball, full windmill dunk that he makes look SO much easier than it really should be. It could have been the step-inside-the-free-throw-line windmill that made me pee a little.
OK, it was a lot. I don’t want to choose a favorite dunk, just like most parents don’t want to choose a favorite child. He’s going to be so fun to have for the next 4 to 30 years.
