The best dunk exhibition of All-Star weekend wasn’t Saturday’s NBA dunk contest; It was first-time All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s dunkfest during Sunday’s All-Star game. A dunkfest that included cockbacks, windmills and a couple memorable moments with Steph Curry.

The first came at the 9:56 mark of the third quarter when Giannis threw down a vicious alley-oop and Curry was hit in the back of the head by the ball flying through the net. Curry just smiled as the West bench pointed and laughed at him.¬†While Curry was still trying to figure out what happened, Giannis came up with a steal and was heading right towards him. Not wanting to end up on a poster, Curry just laid on the ground and allowed Giannis to go past him and throw down a windmill dunk.¬†Curry wasn’t so lucky four minutes later when he went up for a rebound and ended up on putback poster by Giannis. Once again, all Curry could do was just laugh and look up to watch a replay of him getting dunked on.

The Greek Freak ended up with 30 points on 14 of 17 shooting, 6 rebounds, 3 steals and 1 block. He was also the only player in the game who attempted to play defense.
