However, the current year’s challenge ended up being a piece vexing. New York Knicks forward Obi Toppin moved to a somewhat simple triumph, having the high score in the first round and basically winning as a matter of course in the finals after individual finalist Juan Toscano-Anderson ran out of endeavors on his subsequent dunk.
There were absolutely famous minutes from Toppin’s exhibition, and keeping in mind that it wasn’t his most elevated scoring dunk, it’s hard not to be intrigued with this one that fixed his headway into the last round. Toppin threw it off the glass and hammered it home with a windmill through the legs.
