Hamidou Diallo rolls backs the years with iconic dunk!

Oklahoma City Thunder's Hamidou Diallo stole the show at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday evening.

The New York-born shooting guard of Guinean descent rolled back the years to win the slam dunk contest on the second evening of the NBA's All-Star weekend.

Diallo, 20, leaped over NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal to dunk the ball - proceeding by hanging on the rim by his elbow, then tearing up his jersey to reveal a "Superman" shirt to the delight of the crowd.

The so called "honeypot" dunk, which was made famous by Vince Carter is something of true beauty! Relive all the action from the 2019 Slam Dunk Contest right here:
