The Competition May Be Over, But The Dunks Keep On Coming (Video)
Blake Griffin may have jumped over the hood of a Kia Optima for his final dunk of the 2011 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest, but I am willing to bet that T-Dub could have performed the same dunk while jumping over the roof of the car. At least, that is the impression I got after watching him perform what he refers to as his “Dubble Up Dunk.”
If you don’t believe me, you can watch him take flight in the video below.
Following the competition, DeMar DeRozen voiced his displeasure over the use of props during this year’s contest, and although I did enjoy JaVale McGee’s two-ball dunk and Griffin’s over-the-car slam, I can’t help but agree with the high-flying Raptor. After all, there were several awe-inspiring dunks that did not require the services of props, like Griffin’s 360° and elbow-in-the-rim dunks, Serge Ibaka’s leap from the free-throw line, and both of DeRozen’s first round slams.
You can add T-Dub’s “Dubble Up” to that list as well.
