John Wall isn’t known as a prolific dunker to fans outside of Washington, but the former No.1  overall pick just went global with his dunking skills on Saturday night. After showing some fire in the earlier rounds of the Slam Dunk contest, Wall threw down the dunk of the night in the Battle Round and brought the house down in New Orleans.

In the Battle Round, John Wall jumped over the Wizards mascot, pumped and then proceeded to dunk and bring the house down.

There have been complaints about the structure of the dunk contest this year, but Wall’s dunk was without a doubt the highlight of the night and has officially put him on a global stage in a way he wasn’t before.
