What It Takes to be a Monster Dunker with Zach LaVine

Zach LaVine is one of the most electrifying players in the NBA. Look no further than his high-flying ability as one of the league’s best dunkers as proof.

The 6’5″ Minnesota Timberwolves point guard was crowned the 2015 NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion as a 19-year-old last February, making him the second youngest player ever to win the title. He wowed the crowd with his flawless jams, and brought a level of exhilaration to the competition that hadn’t been seen in years. He’s also known to dunk footballs and free throws!

I recently caught up with Zach at the Timberwolves new practice facility, where we chatted about his very first jam and his favorite dunkers. He also demonstrated a monster throw-down for us!
