There’s a reason why Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine was a back-to-back winner of the Slam Dunk Contest as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

LaVine went retro on the road Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks, putting up the dunk of the young season.

It consisted of LaVine going 360 and slamming it down on a reverse.

We were told during junior high science class that gravity didn’t work this way. What do teachers know, anyway? LaVine just proved them all wrong.

The better news for a struggling Bulls team is that they held a 16-point lead late in the second quarter.
