“One of the best dunks I’ve seen in a long time”

Sears Shooting Stars Competition 2014

Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins cemented All-Star Saturday Night by starting what would be a unanimous vote for the best and final dunk of the evening.

The Hall-of-Famer held up “East” to signify that he was voting for John Wall’s dunk in the Battle Round.  Magic Johnson and Julius Irving followed suit, giving Wall the title and the East the win.

“That was one of the best dunks I’ve seen in a long time,” ‘Nique said of Wall’s reverse jam after leaping over G. Man, the Washington Wizards mascot, to grab the ball and throw it down on the first attempt.

Wall beat out Ben McLemore in the Battle Round despite McLemore’s Renaissance gimmick involving Shaquille O’Neal in a chair.  ‘Nique voted for the East in the team in the “Freestyle” round and all three East players in their respective one-on-one “Battle” rounds.

Earlier in the night, ‘Nique and Team Bosh defended their Shooting Stars championship by once again making timely halfcourt shots.  This year it was Bosh who came through in the clutch on each of his first two attempts from 47 feet.

“This is definitely the big three man,” Bosh said laughing.

Portland’s Damian Lillard and Utah’s Trey Burke won the Skills Challenge, and San Antonio’s Marco Belinelli won the three-point contest.

Hawks representatives move to 2-0 on the weekend, with Pero Antic’s “Team Hill” winning the Rising Stars Challenge.  They’ll have a chance to sweep the board when Paul Millsap and his East teammates play the West in the All-Star Game Sunday evening.
