In promotion of the NBA All-Star Game skills competition, the Washington Wizards hosted a media skills competition and trampoline dunk contest today featuring 20 members of the local sports media, including Dan Hellie of NBC Washington, Lindsay Murphy of FOX-5, and Ivan Carter of Comcast SportsNet..â†µ
The skills competition included dribbling around cones, making a short jump shot or lay up, completing a bounce pass, and then finally shooting a t-shirt out of a gun, a skill that is critical to the success of any NBA player.â†µ
The media members would also compete in a dunk contest, which was judged by John Wall and JaVale McGee. The winner of the dunk contest by a wide margin was Big Tigger, the WPGC radio personality and resident DJ at Verizon Center.â†µâ†µ
Here is Hellie's report on the event from NBC Washington, featuring the antics of Chris Lingebach of 106.7 The Fan and a more in-depth video from Wizards.com.
