*Great googamooga! This boy can ball!!
Did ya see that move Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Zach LaVine made to win the slam dunk contest at the NBA All-Star Weekend?
The 19-year-old rookie wowed Madison Square Garden when he went between the legs for an amazing first-round jam and scored a perfect 50.
LaVine is the first Timberwolves player to win the dunk contest since Isaiah Rider in 1994 and also the first player with multiple individual dunks with perfect scores in the same contest since Dwight Howard in 2009.
As he gave ESPN this response:
“I’m still on cloud nine. I feel like I’m dreaming. Seeing all the dunk contests and people hoisting the trophy, I just saw myself do it and lived it, so it’s a dream come true. I’m glad my family is here to witness it and go through it.”
