    LMAO @ Penny's face @ Dumas performance.

    Just found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7dV-...endscreen&NR=1

    Jamie Watson did well there with no crowd reaction because he wasn't well-known and lacked charisma.

    Yep, I'm being completely honest when I say I used to try to imitate Jamie Watson when I was younger (on a much, much lower hoop). I thought he turned in a heck of a performance and had he finished the bounce-to-side-windmill, he may have given Harold Miner a run for a his money.

    You're right about the charisma though. That counted for a lot when those 90-second programs were in play. You can feel the crowd spark up anytime a player began playing to them, whether it was forced or not. So I mean, at least Tony Dumas was on the right track, kind of.

    Just stumbled across this and thought I'd share... I still think Kenny Smith jokingly suggesting Darrell Armstrong shot a layup on purpose has created a stigma around Armstrong and his true dunk abilities. For those that don't know, he didn't reach the NBA until his mid-20's. Before then, he was doing stuff like this in Cyprus and Spain:



    He was still a nasty open floor dunker in Orlando, but he was bringing the pain overseas too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGnpNuH0dbc
