Highlights from LaDarius Marshall 'First To Fly' Dunk Contest Victory

Sophomore LaDarius Marshall is being compared to LeBron James. Watch him win Jordan Brand's 2015 "First To Fly" dunk contest.

LaDarius Marshall, a 6-foot-6 small forward from Forest Hill High School in Jackson, Mississippi, is only a sophomore, but people are already comparing him to LeBron James. Why? Because of his freakish athletic ability—which was on full display as he took home the championship trophy at Jordan Brand's 2015 "First To Fly" dunk contest in Las Vegas.

Marshall's vertical leap is reported to be 40 inches, and he used every bit of it to wow spectators with an arsenal of high-flying jams—like his 180-degree double-clutch dunk overtop two people, or the fully-extended windmill that he finished with one hand behind his head. This young man is impressive to watch, so check out some of his highlights.
