G League Dunk Photo Of The Year Fan Vote

By NBA G League Staff | August 1, 2022

It was a record-setting 2021-22 season for the NBA G League, with 164 total Gatorade Call-Ups of 117 different players to the NBA as the Rio Grande Valley Vipers eventually earned the fourth title in franchise history to close things out in April. Top photographers from around the league were on site to capture every big moment on camera. As #DunkWeek begins around the NBA, we asked for YOUR help deciding which dunk photo was the best from this season. NBA G League staff scoured through our collection and selected 16 of the very best single frames, and left the rest of work to the fans! The bracket was split into two regions, the Print the Poster Region and the Style Points Region, with matchups determined at random. With daily voting across G League social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram Stories, Westchester Knicks guard Miles McBride emerged victorious, running through the Print the Poster side of the bracket before topping Style Points champion Mac McClung for the overall win.
