Guy Tries To Dunk Over a Basketball Rack, Fails Miserably (Video)

fail guy tries to dunk over ball rack

Every generation, it seems, a basketball players comes along who possesses legendary leaping abilities which he uses to give the world epic dunks.

In the late 90s and early 2000s, that player was undoubtedly Vince Carter. He gave us what was possibly the greatest in-game dunk of all time at the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Today, that player is Blake Griffin. The Clippers superstar didn’t just dunk over a car to win the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest; he posterizes people practically every night (just ask Pau Gasol).

Anyway, we love these players. They are some of the most entertaining athletes in the world. And, as if their basketball exploits weren’t enough, they also inspire people to do entertainingly stupid things like this:

Yep, not even close, really. I’m going to assume that this guy can dunk without the ball rack in his way. However, this is still a pretty ill-fated attempt.

Note for you adventurous ballers our there: practice stuff like this in private before you bust it out in front of a whole gym full of people.  That’s one way to prevent it from ending up on the interwebs.
