NBA All-Star Saturday Night: Victor Oladipo dunk contest game thread

On NBA All-Star Saturday night, Victor Oladipo steps into the spotlight when he competes in the Verizon Slam Dunk contest in Los Angeles.

The dunk contest caps off a full night of festive hoops frivolity with some of the best athletes in the world competing and/or sitting courtside reacting to the various competitions.

This will be Oladipo’s second dunk contest, so that experience should help. We’ll have to see what he has in store for the performance which has to include some form of whirling 360 (540?) along with a little singing to put the audience in the palm of his hand.

Make sure you share your thoughts in the comments on the action on Saturday.
