Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Clippers

The list for the 2014 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest was announced and Sacramento Kings rookie Ben McLemore is the sleeper pick.  He however is trying to make a name for himself by attempting an incredible 720 dunk, requiring him to spin twice in the air.

“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.”

If McLemore actually completes the dunk he might as well be handed the trophy.  It’s a tall order but we’ll see what happens on February 15th in New Orleans.
