The NBA Slam Dunk Contest brings out the best of the best dunkers in the NBA, even when they’re short point guards who play for the Portland Trail Blazers. Damian Lillard is dunking on Saturday and turned in one of the best dunks of the night in the warmup round of the contest.
The rules are different this year, as the contest started out with a warmup round that saw three players all dunk at least once. Lillard used this opportunity to go between the legs with one of his dunks, which floored the judges and ignited the crowd.
Lillard isn’t a tall man but he was dunking like one on Saturday night. He may not be a posterizer in normal games, but he showed he can dunk with the best of them on Saturday.
