The dunk contest has a new format this year, which means we might have some never-before-seen stuff. Including a 720.
“I'm definitely a high flyer. I can get high. I just want to show my athleticism out there on the floor and bring a lot of excitement out there.”
Being both aerially dynamic and a high leaper, the current holy grail of the slam dunk, the 720, has come under consideration.
“I was thinking about that, nobody has put that up,” McLemore told CLNS Radio. “But we'll see.”
That would be... something. Here's a video of a streetball player pulling one off, and to think about an NBA player doing it under the bright lights of the dunk contest, well, I'm excited.
McLemore has some crazy bounce, and the ability to seemingly pause in midair. If there's a guy in this season's field that has the potential to pull it off, it would probably be him.
