NBA Rookies Compete in Twitter Dunk-Off at NBA Rookie Day

Zach LaVine has been turning heads all offseason with his high-flying dunks and explosive hops.

Glenn Robinson III took notice and called out his fellow Minnesota Timberwolves rookie to beat his 360 dunk at the NBA rookie photo shoot in New York City.

Well, LaVine isn't one to back down. He accepted the challenge and then called out Andrew Wiggins with an off-the-wall, under-the-legs, right-handed flush. Not too shabby.

Meanwhile, Wiggins was off to the side like, "Hey guys, I can dunk too," and he threw down what might be his signature dunk, the behind-the-back 360 jam.

Not to be left out, the Oklahoma City Thunder rookie duo of Mitch McGary and Josh Huestis added their dunk to the contest. However, they might have to enter under the "doubles" category. 

The rookies might not have made their NBA debuts yet, but we've already learned that they love to compete and that they know how to throw it down.
