All-Star Weekend’s dunk contest here, and we’re bound to see a ton of creative dunks. One of this year’s competitors is Milwakee Bucks guard Pat Connaughton, who paid homage to White Men Can’t Jump character Billy Hoyle with his first dunk of the night. He jumped over MLB’s MVP and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich, grabbed a ball from him, and through down a slam on his first attempt.
