Dunking a basketball is something I always dreamed of. Dunking a basketball in an actual game would even trump that. Dunking a basketball after throwing yourself a lob off the backboard is the end all be all in the dunking world to me.
Last night, former first round pick Derrick Williams tried to show off on a break away and throw himself an alley-oop off the backboard. Didn’t work out too hot. Williams must have either thrown the ball too hard or too high or a combo of both because he didn’t even come close to making the dunk…
The first time I remember seeing such a feat was when Tracy McGrady accomplished it in the 2002 All-Star Game.
I could just watch people dunking all day long!
