Jalen Green, David Carlos battle to epic stalemate in NBTC Slam Dunk Contest


Jalen Green of FilAm Sports USA and guest dunker David Carlos put on a show, as they were hailed the co-champions of the Dunk Contest of the 2019 Chooks-to-Go NBTC All-Star presented by SM on Saturday. 

Both dunkers gave it their all, as they delighted the packed SM Mall of Asia Arena crowd.

Green and Carlos both scored perfect 50 points in the dunk-off. The latter threw down two balls one after the other, while the former responded with a difficult behind-the-back one-handed slam that brought everyone to their feet.

The two also brought the goods back in the championship round.

Carlos unveiled his scorpion dunk, slamming the ball with his left hand, while also paying homage to judge Metta World Peace as he jumped over four people.

Meanwhile, Green converted an off-the-bounce two-handed slam, as well as a forceful tomahawk jam off a lob from his FilAm Sports USA teammate Jaden Saunders.

Kai Ballungay of FilAm Sports and viral dunker Darwin Cantong were also part of the field in the side event of the national championship for high schools.

Meanwhile, John Erolon of St. Louis of Don Bosco-Dumaguete reigned supreme in the Three-Point Shootout.

Erolon drilled 16 points in the Finals to edge out Ethan Galang of FilAm Sports USA who only had 13.

Also joining the fray were Jerric Palma of Top Flight Hoops-Vancouver, Jordan Perez of Camp David-New Zealand, Jason Diaz of Durham Crossover-Canada, Luigi Cuevas of Italy Europe Proudly Pinoy, Jarred Lao of La Salle Green Hills, and Angelo Cacho of University of Baguio.
