Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine might have confirmed his reputation as the NBA’s best dunker. The 21-year-old has already won two NBA Dunk Contests, but what he did at team practice on Wednesday may have sealed the deal.
After practice, LaVine decided to show the world what he’s been working on for this year’s Dunk Contest. Think “three-peat.” Teammate Andrew Wiggins posted a video of LaVine taking off from the free throw line, doing a 360-degree spin and slamming the ball down through the rim.
Should the NBA even hold a dunk contest? Maybe they should just give the trophy to LaVine now. Hopefully, Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon has something up his sleeve, because few other players can even come close to what LaVine pulled off.
