I think style has a lot to do with being successful in a dunk contest. And I think catching the ball on the way up to do a reverse after being disoriented in a struggle to remove your shirt is a lot harder than white's "put the ball over my left shoulder before i two-hand jam" dunk. It takes precision and timing and is easy to screw up live. I think Lee's "lob one bounce through the legs" was more difficult (and hotter) than White's "baseline bring it down to your knees and reverse" dunk (though just barely). And I think Lee's "foul line no look through the legs bounce pass off the backboard" dunk was way more difficult and way hotter than White's boring "two-hand windmill". That was all three finals dunks that the judges saw in the last round and to me it was clear that Lee was the winner. Plus like I said, he really isn't as athletic (probably a much lower vert) as White which has nothing to do with skill, but a god given natural gift. So if anything he was at a disadvantage. I don't know. Just my opinion (dunk contests are ridiculously subjective to begin with).

Henry Bekkering is not a good player.
He plays at my school now.
University of Calgary.
He grew up in Taber, which is a neighboring town.
His whole family including Ross, who is currently also on the team, has played for the Dinos (university of Calgary).

Yeah, he's sick up in Canada. Definitely our top player and has a sweet stroke for a big man. Really nice guy, too. One of the nicest ballers you'll meet.

But he's definitely nowhere near NBA material.
Will probably make a nice living playing ball somewhere in Europe, though.

Henry Bekkering does a 360 through the legs jam in 1

I played against Ross Bekkering once back in highschool. We go killed though, so they took him out pretty quickly. I think their sister also plays for gonzaga.

Billy "Kangaroo Kid" Cunnigham and Rex Chapman are two to add. The best of all time had to be the Russian high jumper who could kick dunk a basketball with someone doing an alley oop to him

Tom Chambers and Rex Chapman. Chapman was in at least one dunk contest. Both guys could jump out of the gym.
