Zach LaVine Coming to Town for Autograph Signing

Zach Lavine, the 2015 NBA dunk contest winner, will be coming to town on May 5 to sign autographs and do a meet and greet with fans.

You can catch Zach at the YMCA on Alden Street from 12 noon to 3:00 pm.

In case you missed it, Zach was recently featured in the NBA dunk contest as one of the main contestants. Not only that, he went on to win the contest during the All Star Weekend by performing what he called the “Space Jam dunk”.

Space Jam is a famous cartoon movie starring Michael Jordan and everyone’s favortte rabbit, Bugs Bunny.

You can see the video of Zach’s dunk below.

Many people have tried to replicate Zach’s success in the vertical jump department. Some have claimed that he has a 50 inch vertical. After seeing his head nearly touch the rim it wouldn’t surprise us!

Athletic performance trainer, Patrick Brady, spoke to us about Zach’s ability.

“Zach is truly a site to behold. His athletic ability is far beyond was most people have. His work ethic and pursuit of his career in the NBA has given him special abilities that most people only dream of.”

Patrick is a jump training specialist and has been teaching athletes how to jump higher for more than 10 years. You can check out some of his vertical jump tips on this page:

Don’t forget to catch Zach in person on May 5!
