By most accounts, the dunk contest has lost a lot of its appeal in recent years. But even if you’re not a fan of Gerald Green or Vince Carter doing their thing, the 2015 Slam Dunk Contest is shaping up to be one of the best in recent years, with rookie Zach Lavine of the Minnesota Timberwolves the highlighting the pre-line card. The former UCLA freshman phenom is no stranger to death defying, high flying dunks. In fact, Zach has been shutting it down with ridiculously dunks since his high school days. On top of insane ability to throw down from damn near anywhere on the court, his sneaker game is equally impressive.
