Jalen Green and David Carlos emerged as co-champions in the 2019 Chooks-to-Go NBTC Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday.

The high-leaping stars made the crowd at the Mall of Asia Arena roar as they showcased their hops and athleticism.

Former NBA champion Metta World Peace judged the event, alongside Kobe Paras, Ricci Rivero, Dylan Ababou, and Joshua Munzon.

Both Green and Carlos received perfect scores in the final dunk-off.

Some photos from the dunk contest:

Carlos brought out a ladder and dunked two balls simultaneously, while Green responded with a vicious behind-the-back jam.

The two dunkers put on an impressive battle in the championship round.

Carlos slammed the ball over four people while wearing a World Peace jersey before unleashing his scorpion dunk.

Green, on the other hand, made a two-handed jam followed by a between-the-legs throwdown assisted by the Chooks mascot.

Kai Ballungay of FilAm Sports USA and viral dunker Darwin Cantong also participated in the dunk competition.
