The redshirt rookie was able to carry the entire night but had serious competition…
I will always wonder why LeBron James and Dwyane Wade won’t compete in the dunk contest because every other dunker of their ilk and superstar lineage has, but last night was pretty exciting nonetheless. There was mad creativity and JaVale McGee made a name for himself. I know you all saw Julius try to slob his Mom down before his three ball dunk right?
Yeah there were some misses before the completion of dunks and I thought the idea of having the fans vote for the winner was flawed but it was a good show. I’m sure we all like seeing dunks we never saw before.
