Photo of the Year: Gary Payton II’s reverse dunk

From photographer Jed Jacobsen: “Going into the Timberwolves and Warriors game, I was really excited to capture some of the young, high-flying stars on both teams. Setting the glass camera requires arriving at the arena 4-5 hours before tipoff to have time to set everything up before the first players arrive for shootaround. The camera is set on two clamps, prefocused on the ‘sweet spot’ near the hoop, behind the backboard, and then synched together with radio remotes that fire the photographic strobes that the NBA has in every arena. From there, I’m able to fire the camera during peak action.

“Gary Payton II is a dream for a photographer. He plays in such a dynamic, athletic fashion with an extreme passion for the game, which translates into great photos. Not many players in the league can dunk like him and this particular photo captures his athleticism. I’m honored to have won the NBA Fan Favorites Photo of the Year, but I couldn’t have done it without the amazing skill of GPII!”

Style of the Year: Suns star Devin Booker

Phoenix Suns All-Star guard Devin Booker was voted by the fans as the player with the best off-the-court style this season.
