Amazing Dunk Or Embarrassing Fail? (Video)

I’m still undecided on this one.  I mean, the guy did a great job getting high enough into the air to grab a hold of the rim and shatter the backboard, but he couldn’t even manage to slam the ball through the hoop in the process.  So should I be impressed?  Does that even count as a backboard-shattering dunk, seeing as how he didn’t even record the two points in the process?

In order to answer these questions, I figured it would be best to ask myself the following question:

What kind of reaction would we see if this happened during an NBA game?

Would the crowd give this guy a standing ovation, or point and laugh like they did when Big Baby and Hedo Turkoglu missed their breakaway dunk attempts?

Tough question.  I think I’m going to need more time with this one.  In the meantime, take a look at the video below and feel free to let us know what you think.
