Victor Oladipo gets assist from Chadwick Boseman on ‘Black Panther’ dunk
Victor Oladipo went Hollywood while in Los Angeles for the Slam Dunk contest.
The Indiana Pacers guard performed a cool “Black Panther” dunk for his second dunk in the contest. Actor Chadwick Boseman, who plays the titular superhero in the Marvel movie “Black Panther”, was sitting courtside for the dunk contest at Staples Center on Saturday night. Oladipo came over to Boseman and was given a Black Panther mask to wear.
Oladipo put on the mask and attempted a dunk. He missed his first attempt but stuffed home the second, much to the delight of fans and Boseman.

We certainly love the creativity and product placement in Oladipo’s dunk.
The big hits were Dennis Smith Jr.’s dunk that scored a perfect 50, Larry Nance Jr.’s Vince Carter dunk, and Donovan Mitchell’s Dr. Dunkenstein tribute.
