Spin 540 degrees in the air and dunk. 100% without failure.
The 2023 NBA All-Star Dunk Contest Champion was Mack McClung.
McClung’s name itself will be unfamiliar to many NBA fans. That’s right, this player is playing in the G-League, which is the lower league of the NBA.
This is the first time a G League player has appeared in the NBA All-Star Game dunk contest. It has been known for its dunk shot for a long time. Although he is less than 190 cm tall, he already has a lot of fans thanks to his jaw-dropping athleticism. 메이저놀이터
From the 1st round to the final. McClung landed every dunk without error.
He climbs over horse riders, shoots backboards, reverse dunks, and dunks down, boasting massive 360-degree mid-air spins.
Even in the state of jumping, McClung’s dunk shot, which rotates leisurely and elegantly, surprised ‘Monster’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, ‘Conqueror’ Kang, and legendary Shaquille O’Neal.
Trey Murphy III swallowed his regrets. Elongated height and explosive jumping power. He received a high score for his dunk shot with an idea added to it, but had to be content with second place behind McClung. Among fans, it is evaluated that it was the best dunk contest since 2016 when Jack Lavin and Aaron Gordon faced each other.
Meanwhile, in the 3-point contest held earlier, Damian Lillard won the championship by beating Buddy Hield by 1 point in the final. Like a deep 3 craftsman, I scored all 3 points thrown from a distance.
This season’s All-Star Game, held at Vivint Arena, home of the Utah Jazz, is now just the main game ahead. ‘Team LeBron’ and ‘Team Giannis’ clash on the morning of the 20th at 10:00 (Korean time).
