Bet on Los! You don’t hear his name mentioned as often as the Kenny Dobbs when it comes to best dunkers ever but he’s a dunk “winner.”
4 years ago, he was hand selected by LeBron James to compete at All-Star weekend in Dallas at a Sprite dunk contest judged by himself and Drake. Los was the runner-up to Air Up There for that event but being 2nd to Air Up There in a dunk contest is the equivalent winning almost any other dunk contest by a landslide. Although Los walked away from the event without 10 grand in his hand, his performance was a good enough audition to land him a gig as the contest’s All-Star judge for the next two years.
He didn’t return as a judge the following year so he returned as a competitor and won the San Francisco Sprite dunk contest. This past weekend, Los looked to repeat with back-to-back wins in San Fran but had to face off against one of the world’s best and most known dunkers – Kenny Dobbs.
1 hour later, Los was standing next to his ex co judge Darryl “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins holding another check from Sprite. Like I said, Bet on Los!
