Remembering The Forgotten Brilliance And Unparalleled Controversy Of The 2011 Dunk Contest

You have to have a certain kind of wingspan to be able to do that. The idea sounds impossible. Xontest does have his supporters, though. There is some controversy that the idea belonged to another dunkerthough Contes insists it was his attempt to inject something new to the contest. Incidentally, his two-ball dunk and cradle were both upgrades on dunks from Larry Nance Sr.

The two-rim dunk received a 50, he followed it up by dunking three balls at once for a NBA backboards are six feet wide, meaning the space between the center of the rims would be six feet if two nets were pushed together.

Before he was a Mavs backup center, JaVale McGee made a name for himself with his freak shows of athleticism and a few silly moments on the court, too. Login to Comment or create an account Email. It was in L.

It was like, ‘Yeah, that’s what I’m going to do. Naw, he did some really good dunks. I definitely think people forget that. Ibaka approached from the baseline, bit — bit!
