Yesterday (Feb. 14), 2015’s State Farm NBA All-Star Saturday night went down with Zach LaVine being certified as a high-flying star and Stephen Curry cementing himself as the league’s best shooter.
LaVine took home the Sprite NBA Slam Dunk title impressively while Curry, who had his sneakers stolen last night, beat out what can easily be considered the best Foot Locker 3-Point contest field ever.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Victor Oladipo (who showed off some struggle crooning) and Mason Plumlee didn’t stand a chance as Lavine’s between the legs, off the bounce, dunk that was a Space Jam dedication ignited the crowd. LaVine’s other notable dunk was another off the bounce where he grabbed the ball with his left hand and brought it behind his back to switch hands and dunk with his right hand.
The finalists in the 3-point contest were Curry, former champ Kyrie Irving and fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson. Curry dropped 27 points in the finals and no one else came close.
