The Venice Basketball League partners with ZTE to unite NBA stars and top dunkers in front of a record crowd for #AGDunkfest

 (Los Angeles, CA. July 11, 2016)

Aaron Gordon brought the NBA Slam Dunk Contest back to life this year with his innovation and athleticism, qualifying it as one of the best contests in history.

On Sunday, July 10th in a pre-ESPY event, Aaron Gordon hosted the best dunkers in the world competing for bragging rights and a cash prize in partnership with the Venice Basketball League. This was the first annual “ZTE Presents Aaron Gordon’s Dunk Fest Powered by VBL” at the world famous Venice Beach basketball courts.

Aaron was joined by several other current and former NBA players including Metta World Peace, Glen “Big Baby” Davis, Ed O’Bannon, and more.

With the crowd at capacity, an all-star lineup of dunkers and celebrity judges, AG’s Dunk Fest stage was set to be one of the best dunk contests in the world, and it did not disappoint. Jordan “Flight” Sutherland out of Atlanta, GA stole the show, walking away with the first Dunk Fest title and the prize money ($5,000).

The day kicked off with the Kids’ Venice Basketball League clinic where the kids challenged Aaron to some 1-on-1 action, learned some new drills from the host and heard how important it is to play and live with passion. The afternoon featured Venice Basketball League season games before the main event – the Dunk Fest.

Prior to the Dunk Fest, Metta joined Aaron at center court to lead a prayer and moment of silence in an effort to promote peace and honor those lost and affected by the recent tragedies happening around the country. An emotional and inspiring moment reminded the thousands in attendance that we are all apart of something bigger than ourselves and bigger than basketball.

The Dunk Fest lineup included:

  • Jordan “Flight” Sutherland
  • Kenny “Dunk Inventor” Dobbs
  • Li Weihao (China’s #1 Dunker)
  • Michael Purdie
  • Nick Ross (Social Media Champion)
  • Chris Staples
  • Desi Balmore

 

The Judges Panel included:

  • Aaron Gordon
  • Metta World Peace
  • Porter “What’s Gravity” Maberry
  • Anthony Hemingway (Film Director)
  • Lixin Cheng (CEO of ZTE)
  • Ed O’Bannon (UCLA Legend)

 

 

Interviews and videos were captured from media affiliates representing Fox Sports West, USA Today, NBC Sports Radio, Fox 11 LA, LA Daily News, and more.  Check out VBL’s Video Recap and Photos from #AGDunkfest.
