Bulls Legend Mac McClung Will Compete in Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend

Chicago Bulls

Mac McClung – who appeared in ONE game for the franchise during the 2021-22 season and clocked an electric 2 minutes and 33 seconds – has committed to the 2023 Slam Dunk Contest.

The Chicago Bulls legend will be the first G-League player to participate in NBA’s most popular All-Star Weekend event, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The decision to extend McClung an invitation was likely an easy one for the league office. The 24-year-old rose to internet fame in high school for his high-flying and emphatic slams at just six-foot-two. He then ended up attending Georgetown University and Texas Tech University before going undrafted in the 2021 NBA Draft.

From there, McClung went on to win the 2022 G-League Rookie of the Year Award and have short stints with both the Bulls (he was a part of the roster for just eight total games) and the Lakers. McClung currently plays for the Delaware Blue Coats, which happens to be the 76ers G-League affiliate.

Anyway, if you’re unfamiliar with McClung’s jaw-dropping work, I’ll throw some highlights for you below. I have to imagine he’ll be the favorite heading into the big night in Utah!

I can’t wait to watch!
