No, this isn’t some unknown kid dunking on Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin during some summer league game.
While Blake Griffin is out promoting the Jordan Brand’s Super.Fly.2 kicks that were recently released, he made a stop in California where he allowed dunker Young Hollywood, who is only 5 foot eleven, to dunk over him. To our surprise, Hollywood gets the dunk off cleanly.
First reaction is “wow, a between the legs dunk. That’s new”. We’ve seen that dunk several times from the shortest and tallest athletes in the world, but watching Young Hollywood get this dunk right on the first try is no joke. Especially considering that Blake Griffin stands at 6 foot 10 feet. That’s not small at all last time I checked.
Seeing these unknown talents pull off dunks that could possibly win the NBA dunk contest if you threw in a few props makes me wonder how appealing the Dunk Contest could become if it became a competition of some sorts. The NBA versus the top dunkers around the world. Even in the D-League dunkers would provide a healthy competition to the dull All-Star event.
