With the 2014 NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest taking on a whole new team format this year, it appears that Sacramento Kings guard Ben McLemore is thinking about pulling out an impressive jam for the Western Conference.
When speaking to the media in Boston before the Kings-Celtics affair, it appears that McLemore is contemplating doing a 720 dunk:
“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.”
We’ll have to wait and see on that one…
