Video: Zach LaVine's Space Jam dunk - The greatest in NBA history?

NBA All Star Game

Zach LaVine made a name for himself with his first ever NBA Slam Dunk contest performance.

The NBA has a new to remember - Zach LaVine.

The rookie was crowned the winner of the Slam Dunk Contest at NBA All Star weekend, scoring a perfect 50 from the judges with his opening effort.

LaVine, only 19, evoked memories of Vince Carter's 2000 performance, regarded previously as the greatest in NBA history.

The teenager is a big Michael Jordan fan and paid tribute to the icon by wearing his jersey and producing a between the legs reverse dunk reminiscent of the Space Jam film.

He also became the first competitor since Dwight Howard in 2009 to record perfect scores on multiple dunks.

LaVine was selected at number 13 in the NBA Draft last summer by the Minnesota Timberwolves.

After the contest the uber-confident rookie said he'd even beat LeBron James in a dunk contest, telling ESPN: LeBron's one of the most freaky athletes of all time ... But like I said, I'm a confident person."
