Oladipo immediately made an impression on the Barclays Center as he came out on to the court dressed up and singing ‘New York, New York’.
The second-year star is known for his love for singing, and if you have music star Rihanna giggling on the front row, you may well be doing something right.
Nevertheless, Oladipo was focused on the task in hand once the contest got underway and he delivered a stunning first effort as seen below which scored maximum points from the five judges.
However, he struggled to follow that up in the second attempt of the first round and then again in the championship round with LaVine undoubtedly a worthy winner after a string of sensational dunks.
The 22-year-old Magic star can be happy with his efforts, which included this incredible dunk to get started in the opening round of the event…
