Zach LaVine Not Happy With ESPN’s Birthday Tweet Last Tuesday

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine turned 25 last Tuesday and ESPN’s Twitter account wished him a happy birthday but he didn’t like the way they did it. ESPN shared a highlight reel of LaVine’s performance in the 2016 Slam Dunk Contest but he didn’t appreciate it.

LaVine replied to them by simply tweeting:

“Still just want to talk about dunking huh 🤦🏽♂️”

LaVine clearly doesn’t want to be seen as just a dunker. He made it clear by choosing to participate in the 3-point contest during the All-Star Weekend in Chicago last month instead of going for his third Dunk Contest title. Even after fans begged him to go for his third Dunk Contest title.

He admitted that he was planning to participate in the Dunk Contest before the NBA snubbed from his first All-Star appearance:

“If I would’ve made it, I would’ve done it for y’all, man. But I just don’t — I don’t have it in me. If I would have made it, I would’ve made it even then. It’s not like I really wanted to. I would have just put on for my city. You know it’s in Chicago, and I don’t need a lot to prove about the Dunk Contest.”

The reaction that LaVine had to ESPN’s tweet confirms that he will feel indifference towards the contest in the future as well. The controversy surrounding the end of the contest this year also doesn’t help the chances of seeing LaVine participating in it again. LaVine should have been an NBA All-Star. The 25-year-old is averaging career-highs with 25.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 0.5 blocks. He also dishes out 4.2 assists in 34.8 minutes over 60 games.
