Video: Zach LaVine has made 360 dunk from free-throw line before
LaVine’s attempt went viral and he’s upset about it. The high-flyer also told the media on Saturday he’s made that dunk before and we have proof:
“It wasn’t even supposed to go viral, man,” LaVine said with a laugh, via Bulls.com. “I got mad at my friend. He was with me recording. I was just messing around, trying to see what I still had and what I could do. It was just in good fun. I was practicing some things after I got done shooting. I did a couple (of those) years ago. It’s on YouTube somewhere. Andrew Wiggins recorded it when I was in Minnesota. You’ll actually see Kris Dunn in the video. I made one. I just wanted to see if I still had it. I got pretty close on my first attempt. I could probably make it still.”

If LaVine wins the 3-point contest on Saturday, he’ll become the only player in NBA history to win both the Slam Dunk contest and 3-point contest. LaVine is a two-time dunk contest winner.
LaVine has firmly established himself as one of the best scorers in the league despite the Bulls’ issues. He’s averaging 25.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists while shooting 44.8 percent from the field, 38.5 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free-throw line.
Fans are upset they won’t get to see LaVine in the dunk contest. Everyone wanted to see LaVine and Aaron Gordon have their rematch.
