Minnesota Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine won the NBA All-Star Sprite Slam Dunk competition on Saturday night in New York, and he won over the crowd with a throwback to the 1996 movie “Space Jam.”

In his first attempt, he appeared on the court wearing Michael Jordan’s #23 Tune Squad jersey from the film while the Quad City DJs performed the theme song.

“I’m still on cloud nine. I feel like I’m dreaming,” he said. “Seeing all the dunk contests and people hoisting the trophy, I just saw myself do it and lived it, so it’s a dream come true. I’m glad my family is here to witness it and go through it.”

LaVine, who got 2 perfect scores, is the second youngest winner in the competition’s history next to Kobe Bryant.

From our friends at Uproxx:

Some background about the pic: in Ecuador, they celebrate the New Year by burning wood/carton dolls. Normally they pick politicians, or recent cartoon dolls… honestly I don't know why these particular guys picked to design characters from a 1996 movie.
