In an electrifying night at the NBA All-Star Saturday night, Mac McClung stole the show. The G-League guard, who has only played two NBA games, won the Slam Dunk Contest with a series of viral finishes.
McClung, who rose to fame with his viral dunk in high school, was the favorite to win the contest. Despite facing tough competition, he managed to dominate the field and take home the trophy.
In the final round, McClung completed a 360-degree dunk to win the contest. His performance earned him a perfect score from the judges and the loudest cheers of the night.
Following his victory, McClung said he was humbled by the experience. “It’s been a long journey, and I’m so glad I could do it here in front of all these fans,” he said.
McClung’s win was the highlight of the night and has made him a household name. He has gone from G-Leaguer to NBA Slam Dunk winner in a matter of months and is now on the path to stardom.
