Nor was it the night of Jalen Green. the rookie of the Houston Rockets came to all star dunk contest as one of the great claims of the event for its spectacular nature and its ability to jump. However, the young player of the Texan team did not meet expectations and went down in history after signing one of the worst performances of all time.

Green jumped onto the court ready to win over the jury from the first moment and before making his first attempt he hooked a gold chain around his neck with a dangling mobile displaying some of his best dunks. so far this season. The wrapping was ready and only the final gift remained: mate.

Green caught the pass to the board and passed the ball between his legs before trying to crush the basket. Fail. A sequence that was repeated up to eight more times and that took him to spend more than five minutes on the court trying to complete a first mate that finally came in a much simpler way than he had rehearsed and ended up causing boos from the public.

“I need a new opportunity because this year I’ve screwed up,” said Green after his participation in this edition of the dunk contest. “I need to try again next year. We’ll see how. Fail. It’s very simple. I have the height, I have the power, but this time he didn’t want to go in.”
