The 2015 Champion is back to defend his crown — could he possibly do better than last year? No way, right? He’s gotta be the favorite again, anyone with LaVine’s hops can do anything in the air they so please.
The 6’11”, 280-pound behemoth from the Detroit Pistons was not only selected to the all-star team for the first time in his short career, he will enter the dunk competition as well. Drummond certainly doesn’t have the jumping athleticism that the other competitors do, but, he does have the ability rip the rim off the backboard and eat it which would probably end the showcase immediately so there’s that.
If feels like the high-flying Orlando Magic swingman has his own segment on the Sportscenter Top 10 at this point. Any rebound that bounces straight up in the air has the potential to be putback dunked into oblivion by Aaron, and you get the feeling like he’s gonna parlay his raw athleticism with his dunk power into something filthy. This is not only the darkhorse, but, my pick to win.
Will the Thrill!!!!
The fan favorite finally gets his opportunity to shine on the big stage, and one thing’s for certain: he’s going to finish in either first or last. Dead last. No-one goes hard at the rim like Will, and you gotta think he’s gonna empty his arsenal on his biggest night as a pro.
