National Basketball Association 3-Point Contest 2019

Hamidou Diallo

All four competitors get two dunks in the first round. For me to come in and win on my first time, it's surreal.

Curry won the first round with 27 points out of a possible 34. Hield was second with 26 points, and Harris finished with 25 to grab the last spot in the finals. "That's how I had it in my head anyway".

"The previous two rounds, the guy was ahead of me", Tatum said. "It's been an honor for me to be here, for me to participate this weekend, and it's something I'll remember for a long time". Whether it be a different format or simply opening up the contest more (would you not like to see Zion Williamson in the contest this year even though he is still in college?) or even allowing the use of professional dunkers to compete against National Basketball Association players, something has to change.

"I honestly didn't know I was going to hit the shot, but I had to give myself a chance, throw it up there, and it worked out for the best". "It worked out for the best".

Rosen, who is now deputy transportation secretary, will replace Rod Rosenstein , who is expected to leave his post in mid-March. CNN reported Wednesday Barr is preparing to receive special counsel Robert Mueller's report as early as next week.

New York Knicks' point guard Dennis Smith Jr. has also been looking for outside help in preparation for his second Dunk Contest.

Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Hamidou Diallo put on a show for the fans in Charlotte, leaping over Shaquille O'Neal en route to dunk contest glory. But Smith Jr. already used the Miami Heat legend in his dunk, and the OKC youngster wanted to be original, not copy/paste already seen moves.

Diallo topped Smith 88-85 in the finale. One of his dunks involved jumping over Dwyane Wade, who is in his last season in the league, then throwing down a powerful slam.

Wearing a Superman t-shirt underneath his Thunder jersey, Diallo got the arena on its feet with a stunning leap over O'Neal in the Slam Dunk contest.
