Competing against accomplished dunk legends, Filipino David Carlos showed that he is in the upper echelon of professional dunkers in the world, as he took home bronze in the 2018 FIBA 3X3 World Cup Slam Dunk competition.
The the 2017 FIBA 3×3 World Tour Chengdu Masters Slam Dunk king, Carlos did not miss any of his dunks in the elimination round.
His first attempt was a one-bounce dunk over two Chooks-to-Go Girls. The former UST Team B player followed it up with an assisted cradle dunk over a tower composed of two people.
It also helped that Ukranian Miller Poddubchenko bombed in his second attempt, resulting in five zeroes from the judges, who included naturalized Filipino Andray Blatche.
In a thrilling finals, it was Smoove Krivenko who took home the gold in the showcase. This is his second world title.
Guy Dupoy, who was a contestant in the second season of reality show Dunk King, attempted dunks of high difficulty but could not convert them in his first attempt.
