Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Zach LaVine was considered by many to be the favorite to win the 2015 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.

For his first dunk, he had Quad City DJ's open for him with "Come on and Slam" from the movie Space Jam. He then revealed himself to be wearing a Space Jam "Toon Squad" jersey.

If you do that, you'd better not disappoint. He didn't.

His second dunk may have been even better. Another perfect "50" from the judges.

His dunk with an assist from Andrew Wiggins defied physics:
