Between Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, NBA All-Star Weekend and below freezing temperatures, New York City was a zoo this weekend. (Well just a bit more than usual.) In the midst of it all, Orlando left an impact on the court at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Feb. 14, during the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest, courtesy of the Magic’s shooting guard Victor Oladipo.
Although he came in second place in the end to show-stopping 19-year-old Zach LaVine (Minnesota Timberwolves), Oladipo made history during the first round by successfully completing the first-ever 540-degree dunk in the competition’s existence. After showing off his vocal range by making his entrance singing along to Frank Sinatra’s classic "New York, New York," Oladipo took two attempts at his now historic dunk and nailed it on the third, earning him a perfect score of 50.
Now let’s just hope Oladipo and the team can bring this energy back home to the Amway Center.
