In an interview with "SportsCenter" after his All-Star Saturday night dunk competition win, LaVine said he'd take himself in a one-on-one dunk-off with LeBron James.
"I never go against my own talent so I've got to say me," LaVine said.
LaVine became the first Minnesota Timberwolves player to win the dunk contest since Isaiah Rider in 1994. He also became the first player with multiple dunks with perfect scores in the same contest since Dwight Howard in 2009.
The 19-year-old rookie gave James, a four-time MVP and two-time champion, his due, but still predicted a win in the hypothetical dunk contest.
"I know LeBron's got some stuff that he ain't showed the world, either," LaVine said. "LeBron's one of the most freaky athletes of all time ... But like I said, I'm a confident person."
