Kobe Paras wins U18 3x3 FIBA Dunk Contest

September 29, 2013 8:24pm
La Salle Greenhills Greenie Kobe Paras won the Dunk Contest at the 2013 U18 3x3 FIBA World Championships, Sunday in Jakarta, Indonesia.


Paras bested Antonio Morales of Spain, Demonte Flannigan of the United States and Sun Ming Hui of China to take home the gold.

In the Finals of the competition, one of Paras' dunks involved slamming one home from the baseline over teammate Thirdy Ravena, who was astride a motorcycle.



The son of PBA great Benjie Paras previously got a perfect score of 30 points in the qualification pool, sending himself a pass off the backboard through the legs and then jamming it home with a reverse.



Paras' win was some comfort for the team after they were unable to advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament, as they dropped their final four games of the group stage. - AMD, GMA News
