lilojmayo has already won the dunk contest. I don't think anybody can do that reverse dunk he did in his video. I watched that part a few times and he really moved the ball a lot it was like a halfway mini windmill reverse.

No, because I say he is going to win a dunk contest hands down, especially if he can just pick his best one. I've seen some unseen dunks he has shown me and he can fly trust me on that one. He was clearly injured in that video, but that isn't the lilojmayo i have seen in some of the dunks he has shown me and it is in the same exact gym. lilojmayo said he will never show his best for ISH or anybody that doesn't know him. He said the haters will just get disappointed.

Your handles are even better than the last time you posted a video, and I was impressed then. There is no doubt you can score the basket, I liked how you stayed with it on that missed windmill layup and tip it in. That's show an alert player.

Problem is your shot. Yes, you have range on your shot, but the form is terrible. In my opinion it is worse than shawn marion since no 2 shots are the same.

I just say what i see. His shot form sucks. He can knock them down though.

I guess you do qualify if this was a dunk contest for midgets. If somebody on this site can touch 12 foot, I would certainly be impressed.

This contest might as well be a glorified lay-up or trick shot contest rather than a dunk contest given how so few ppl can even dunk in the first place let alone well. If you can barely touch 11 feet, then I doubt u can do very impressive dunks. And I seriously doubt anyone can dunk from the freethrow line on ISH.

Besides, all this contest has accomplished is expose who is an exaggerator of their athletic ability. Why haven't those folks who claim to have over 36 inch verticals shown any signs of participation? This probably isn't going to be very impressive dunk contest.

well i think i think i did boast a 30-32'' vert... but even @ 6' that doesnt justify a nice dunk

my vert is prob only really 28 inches, idk i never measured it. I can hit the rim with the top of my palm
