Golden State Warriors wing Juan Toscano-Anderson will participate in the AT&T Slam Dunk Contest. NBA All-Star Saturday Night will begin at 5pm PT in Cleveland and can be watched on TNT.
The dunk contest is the final event of All-Star Saturday Night, following a revamped Skills Challenge and the traditional 3-Point Contest. JTA is looking to bring home the trophy for the third time in franchise history. The last Warrior to win the dunk contest was Jason Richardson who won it in back-to-back years in 2002 and 2003.
At 28 years old, JTA has been in the league for three years — all with his hometown team the Warriors. He’s a solid player that adds energy to the team whenever they need it and isn’t afraid to throw down some highlight dunks to do so:

JTA is never shy about how proud he is to represent his hometown team, but the whole situation is still very surreal for him:
