Victor Oladipo in Slam Dunk Contest

Cohen’s Analysis: Oladipo confirmed earlier in the season that he would be the perfect addition to this season’s dunk contest when he dazzled us with his spectacular 360-degree slam against the Nets. He backed up that jam with several more ferocious throw-downs, including one in which he posterized Al Horford and Paul Millsap in Atlanta.

Aside from his amazing athleticism and willingness to participate, Oladipo’s fan support around the country is rapidly growing and with the dunk contest stale the last couple of years he could be the answer to making the competition more entertaining again.
