I don’t know how this qualifies as a dunk. His hand did not even touch the rim though his jump’s height created that illusion of him dunking the ball. But I have to give him props for showmanship with that cape and “S” on the chest. That’s how you make the crowd go wild. But hey, was that even a dunk? Definition of the dunk shot remains “propelling the ball downwards into the basket.” Grabbing the rim doesn’t seem to be a prerequisite so maybe, just maybe, that was a dunk shot.

The keyword here is “downwards.” He did throw the ball downwards, so I guess it counts as a dunk. I wouldn’t have given it a 50 though.
Yeah, that was a dunk, technically. But I wouldn’t have voted for it.
Sort of like dunkin’ your donut into your coffee, no need to touch the mug, but it’s still a dunk.
But last I heard, the NBA wasn’t renaming itself Dunkin Donuts.
P.S. I’m back from a 5 month hiatus. Whooh, I’m all energized and ready to blog!
