Slam dunk champ Zach LaVine throws down 360 dunk in practice (Video)


Zach LaVine made a name for himself as a two-time slam dunk contest champion. His teammate Andrew Wiggins caught some of his practice action.

Minnesota Timberwolves star Zach LaVine has upped the ante under new head coach Tom Thibodeau. In his third season, he’s shattering his career averages in minutes, field goal attempts, scoring, and, three-point shooting.

But when LaVine has moments like the one he had in practice today, it’s hard not to look at him for anything more than his incredible leaping ability.

During a Timberwolves practice, LaVine’s teammate Andrew Wiggins captured the two-time dunk champ in an incredible moment.

It was a 360 dunk from the foul line that Wiggins uploaded to his Snapchat with the caption “3 peat?” A reference to LaVine possibly becoming the second player to win the dunk contest three times. Nate Robinson was the other.

Even as he expands his game, LaVine is always going to be one of the guys with every highlight will be profiled on social media. Check out the video; even his teammates are in awe of what he can do.
