Indiana Pacers guard Paul George didn’t even warm up before performing his never-before-seen slam. He throws down 360-degree, through-the-legs windmill dunk in Shanghai. Â The world was alerted to the birth of this ungainly beast by LeBron James.
James’ report was later confirmed byÂ YouTube user KZ15220, who shared video of George’s dunk at the Festival of Sport event in China (Note: It’s the second dunk in the video):
If the dunk looks familiar to you, it might be because George’s Shanghai slam resembles the 360-degree windmill that he completed at theÂ 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest during NBA All-Star Weekend, though he’s since added the extra wrinkle (and difficulty) of going through his legs in mid-spin. If the dunk doesn’t look familiar to you, it might be because George did that February dunk in the dark while wearing glow-in-the-dark stripes on his jersey, marking arguably the worst decision of a dunk contest that sawÂ Chase BudingerÂ both pretend to be Cedric CeballosÂ andÂ jump over Diddy, which is saying something.
