In front of Luka Doncic, Zion Williamson, Jayson Tatum & Gaby Williams, three of the best dunkers in the world battle to take home the trophy. Piotr Grabowski, Tyler Currie and Christon Staples were on fire and showcased one of the craziest dunks've we ever seen.
Just like that, Grabowski -wearing a Zion Jersey- passed an Eastbay over Zion himself while Staples enjoyed jumping over 7’6 players.

Quai 54 is not only about basketball, it’s about unifying people and the culture around our beautiful game. It’s evident the whole weekend was packed by dancers from around the globe
