Dubrovnik tops NBA Dunk List with Mario Hezonja pile driver

By  Dec 09, 2018

The NBA list of the top dunks of this week is topped by the Dubrovnik basketball star Mario Hezonja. During the match between Hezonja’s New York Knicks and the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden the Dubrovnik forward stole a pass and dribbled almost the full length of the court before slamming home.

During the slam dunk one of the best players in the NBA this season Giannis Antetokounmpo tried to block him and Hezonja reacted by starring down the “Greek Freak” on the floor and stepping over him before waving his arms at the crowd to get their support.

"I want to get the crowd involved even more," Hezonja said. "That was a perfect moment for it. I want them. I’m the type of a guy that always wants the crowd getting involved. Honestly, if you’re afraid, this is not for you. I don’t want to be disrespectful, but if you feel fear this is not the place for you, New York is not a place for you and this team is not a place for you."
