During the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine narrowly—and controversiallyedged out Aaron Gordon of the Orlando Magic in one of the most insane dunk contests the league has ever treated the world to.

It was the youngester's second consecutive dunk title.

Now, thanks to a Snapchat post from teammate Andrew Wigginshimself an explosive dunker—we've got a glimpse of what LaVine might pull out to claim his third straight slam-pionship: a 360-degree dunk from barely inside the free-throw line.

LaVine and Gordon have yet to commit to participating in the 2017 event, which will take place in New Orleans, though Wiggins' caption in the video above seems to hint that his teammate will be there.

“I’m not 100 percent sure," Gordon said in an interview in September. "I kind of gave a lot in this last one and to be more creative would be difficult. I think I could do it, but I’m not sure if I’m going to.”

The closest thing we could find to someone else completing the dunk above belongs to Terence Stansbury all the way back in 1987, though he didn't get near the distance LaVine got.
