Default Outlaw vs Petway Dunk Contest at Fan Night

For those of you who missed fan night, you missed quite a dunk show from the two (I wish I had video to show and re-watch myself).

Outlaw had some good ones including a really nice off the backboard 1 handed dunk. He through the ball off the upperside of the glass and I swore it was going to be too high. But he raised to the point of getting his head about rim level. His second best dunk was where I believe he bounced the ball, caught it, held it between his knees and did a reverse dunk (much like one Francis did in the 2000 dunk contest). He also attempted a between the legs but barely missed.

Petway blew Outlaw away though. He did 2 between the legs dunks with one of them being the dunk of the night (jumped a long way). He also did a 360 windmill like Vince Carters and Josh Smith's. The only difference was he ended up with his head under the hoop putting a different angle on the slam.

Its a shame Petway will likely be cut because it is a waste of good highlight real. I'm in no way protesting him getting cut because I prefer better players over better highlights, but I hope he finds somewhere in the NBA to play. If not, I hope he is on our training camp roster in the future just for the fun of it.

I haven't seen him play



If he has a good jumper...like a 35%+ from the 3-point line jumper then I would think that he's going to stay...I need to check how many guaranteed contracts the Blazers have though

Jack
Blake
Rodriguez
Green
Roy
Webster
James
Miles
Outlaw
Aldridge
Frye
LaFrentz
Oden
Przybilla
McRoberts

Thats 15...yeah...he'll be cut



I found a video of one of his dunks

Yeah, that Petway one is the one I was thinking of. The Outlaw dunk isn't as impressive as I thought it was in the moment.
