Ben McLemore on losing dunk contest to John Wall: this is bulls— (GIF)
Apparently Ben McLemore is the only person around who didn’t think John Wall had the best dunk of the night in the Slam Dunk Competition on Saturday.
Wall brought down the house by taking the ball from the Wizards mascot in the air, double-pumping and then dunking. He did it all while jumping over the mascot. It was pretty darn impressive, and it left many people saying that Wall brought the dunk contest back.
But McLemore thought his dunk was deserving of a victory over Wall. As he was waiting to hear from the judges, someone appeared to say something to him and you could see him respond that the judging was bulls–.
McLemore did an entire king-themed dunk that involved Shaq, who is a part-owner of the Sacramento Kings. You can see both his and Wall’s dunks in the video below:
I don’t know what McLemore was complaining about. Even he was impressed by Wall’s dunk. Check out his original reaction:
Look at how much air Wall got on his dunk:
How could you not pick him? No surprise, the Wizards guard was named the Slam Dunker of the Night. It was definitely deserving, regardless of how McLemore felt.
