NBA Slam Dunk Contest: Paul George 360 slam dunk (GIF)


Paul George entered Saturday’s slam dunk contest as one of the most anticipated players in his second appearance in the event and he delivered on that hype with this raucous 360 slam dunk that brought down the house in New Orleans.

Team East also consisted of John Wall from the Washington Wizards and last year’s slam dunk champion, Terrence Ross from the Toronto Raptors defeating team West which consisted of Damian Lillard from the Portland Trail Blazers, Ben McLemore from the Sacramento Kings and Harrison Barnes from the Golden State Warriors.

While George’s dunk was indeed a rim-rattler that brought fans out of their seats in the arena and at home, he came up short as Wall took home the individual honors.
