Best contest dunk ever?

    Seen this one making the rounds on some shows and the web. Some street baller at a dunk contest in L.A. does a cartwheel, grabs the ball off the ground while upside down, then follows it up with a flawless between-the-legs dunk.
    Pretty badass.

    He also manages to slow his ascent. :D

    Best ever? Nah. Cedric Ceballos once did a blindfolded dunk.

    No, really! During All-Star Weekend! ....................... What?

    Everything is cooler in slo-motion and extreme camera angles. The raw footage was of a dumpy 5-8 white guy hitting a 6-foot bank shot.

    And he was wearing a headband and striped tube socks pulled up to his knees.

    Here's a clip (of the dunk, not the dumpy white guy) at full speed and without all of the cheesy Nike crap on there.

    It wasn't in a dunk contest, but it basically was in a dunk contest: Air Up There's 720-degree dunk.

    Personally, I always liked Hook Mitchell' dunk over a car.

    If you're a guy between the ages of 30-40, it's probably at least a 50-50 shot that you had the poster of this dunk on your wall sometimes as a kid...

    That was a tad before my time, but my cousins had that one. I had posters of Heather Thomas, Heather Locklear and Alyssa Milano at some point though.

    Same idea, but this one applies more to the "between ages of 40 and 50" today set.

    Yup, had this one. Was my favorite photo until I saw Cheryl Tiegs in a white fishnet getup in an SI swimsuit issue. Yowza!

    Edit to add details: Turns out, it was the 1978 swimsuit issue. If I could ever be smart enough to discern how to put pis here, I would do so. Yes, I know, full of fail, I be.
