NBA Jam was THE jam growing up (see what I did there?) and I played it much as I could on my Sega Genesis. I always wanted to get the secret characters, but at the same time my favorite team was the Charlotte Hornets. I could use Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning. That was a dream team to me.
NBA Jam had a relaunch in 2010, but didn’t exactly live up to the 1993 version.
Today, I was amazed by what I found on YouTube — A real life NBA Jam dunk. No, someone didn’t just yell “Boomshakalaka!” but they may as well have yelled, “He’s on fire!”
This dude, Kenny Dobbs, dunks over a guy who is holding a basketball over his head and is ON FIRE! To me this is about as cool as it gets — When the ball goes through the net, BOOM! The net goes up in flames.
Would Kenny Dobbs win the NBA dunk contest with a dunk like this?
