Default A dunk nobody has seen done before (truly original)

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=5K3p001FXd0


Someone posted this is the Rudy Gay Dunk thread (Rudy Gay is asking fans to post dunks that he can do in the contest) and I felt it was far too slick not to have its own thread.

Actually the 360 between the legs has been around about 5-6 yrs, Bamba and Tim Lowe from Slam Nation did it first as far as I know.

Like I said in the other thread, it's just a matter of nobody famous on a big stage has done it. I'll make a list of similar dunks that have been done so we know they're possible, but nobody has done on a huge stage since I follow all these streetball cats and Team Flight Brothers

I dont know if Rudy can do it..Honestly I dont think he can. Thats a sick dunk and somebody better try it.

edit: To the guy above..watch it again and look closely he doesnt go between the legs, he goes under and around his legs

2. 540 with a windmill

5'9 TDUb
a) regular with no windmill, Patrick Ewing Jr.

3. 720


Taureane Fountainette aka Air Up There, TDub

4. Elbow hang variations

Kareem Ward (can do it off a lob [did it in a college game even], can windmill then elbow hang, 360 then elbow hang)
Hi Riza (can hang with both elbows off a lob)
Some French guy (hung by his shoulder but pulled up quickly on the net)
Jameel Pugh (can windmill then elbow hang or 360 then elbow hang)

5. Between the legs variations

a) with 2 hands
Rodney Carney, TDub (off 2 feet), Bryce Dunkalicious, Springs

I think that dunk was better then all of them...He went under and around his legs while doing almost a 360.... That's a lot harder then the other dunks imo.

All those dunks are old, this is the best one I have seen since the Vince reverse 360 windmill in the dunk contest.

I liked when Kadour Ziani and Hook Mitchell jumped over a car.

The two-handed elbow hang? Now that's an impossible dunk

I'm uploading Team Flight Brothers response video to Rudy Gay right now.

Who better to give advice on dunking than the greatest in the world.

I also just posted my first video for TFB that shows footage from the 1st event with Justin Darlington, Special FX, Elevator and Mr 720 at youtube.com/teamflightbrothers

^ I already told you the story about how I saw them at Kansas City, right? All the guys who were on it then aren't anymore though, like Oh No! and the 6'3ish white guy, and the tall slinky African guy, I don't remember their names. Kansas City is a terrible basketball city too if that turnout was the best they had. I could move there and immediately become on of the best in the entire city, assuming there's no colleges around.

You work for City slam these days? Or is that someone else in the group?
