This is from an angle which would not help in the illusion. This is legit but not quite over the rim level. Still insane.

No, hoopmixtape of all places is the most frequent abuser of taking advantage of perspective to embellish player verts and athleticism on camera. The camera is crosscourt with a zoom lens, and the dunker in the air is closer to the camera than the rim is too the camera and combined with the placement of the photographer this is ALWAYS going to inflate the appearance of the player and reduce the appearance of the rim. What looks like an imperceptable gap from that angle could realistically be a huge gap to anyone who was up close and saw the dunk happen in person.

That angle is ABSOLUTELY NOT HELPING IN THE ILLUSION. If it was, the inside back of the rim would be clearly visible and show that it is indeed shot from the ground up to appear as if he's head rim. It's not and you are wrong.

I mean, he's not even head level here and this dude is lauded for his freak athleticism. Exactly what is the issue here? I'm genuinely concern for your well being.

Could I see the link to the vid of him dunking that? He could be closer to the camera lens than the hoop is. Anyways, even if he can get his head to the rim his athleticism doesn't appear to translate into games. Not really explosive if you ask me.

I thought we were talking about that Antetokounmpo guy? Wiggins is obviously an insane athlete. I couldn't tell from that blurry pic that it was Wiggins. I thought you posted another pic of the greek guy.

You need to remember to specify who your posting a picture of next time. I assumed you posted a pic of Antetokuounmpo. We're giving you shit because it looks like you were sticking up for EL

The current word is that NBA teams are absolutely drooling over Thanasis after seeing him up close in just a little bit of playing time in the D-League.

A lot of NBA teams are now supposedly currently planning on taking him in the first round of the draft.
