The NBA Slam Dunk Contest took place during the 2022 NBA All-Star Weekend on Saturday night, and New York Knicks’ Obi Toppin won the competition.
One of the other competitors in the contest was Orlando Magic point guard Cole Anthony.
After the contest, Anthony sent several tweets, which can be seen below.
Anthony did something unique by diving into Timberlands (as opposed to basketball shoes) for one of his dunks.
Other contestants besides Toppin and Anthony were Jalen Green of the Houston Rockets and Juan Toscano-Anderson of the Golden State Warriors.
Over the season, Anthony averaged 17.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game.
The Magic are the 15th seed in the Eastern Conference with a 13-47 record, which is the worst in the entire NBA.
