Mac McClung returned to the NBA spotlight and defended his dunk contest title in Indianapolis.

McClung of the G League competed in a four-player pool comprising Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown, Miami Heat rookie Jaime Jacquez Jr. and New York Knicks' Jacob Toppin Saturday night.

The 6-foot-2 McClung edged Brown in the final round with a dunk over 7-foot-1 Shaquille O'Neal, who put on McClung's jersey as a request from the point guard.

From fans roasting Brown to acknowledging McClung's efforts, here are some of the best reactions:

Will McClung go for the three-peat next year? He said after the event, "Never say never, but I’ll think about it.”
