Jeremy Evans is the first Utah Jazz player to be crowned the Slam Dunk Champion. We did it Jazz fans, we started the #LetJeremyDunk campaign on Twitter, we voted for him like crazy via text and twitter Saturday night, and we now have a dunk champion on our team.
Brian T Smith was at All-Star Saturday Night to capture it for Jazz fans. Smith reported that as the news began to sink-in Jeremy was beginning to become speechless. Jeremy said that honoring the Mailman, Karl Malone was all his idea, as a way of giving thanks back to Jazz fans for their support. Evans shared that Dwight Howard (who he became friends with over the summer/lockout) came up HUGE in getting Kevin Hart to play the mailman for him.
Congrats to Jeremy Evans and congrats to Jazz Nation. @prodigyJF has full highlights of Jeremy’s special night here :
