Any of you remember my "beef" with clamantfever? Well, we're cool now.. but, he's still nuts.

As an example, stumbled upon the comments on this video:



I mean, I wouldn't expect him to beat any of the people he criticizes / argues with, in a dunk contest. That's the thing I find most mindblowing.

dno, it's very zelenoff-esque.

The person in the insta-gram is an embarrassment to humanity.

Saying part of his dunk was Vince-carteresque

had to drop some adarq blessing in some facebook dunk thread w/ a bunch of people/pro dunkers whining about push offs & props:

Quote
Andrew Darqui Some prop dunks are pretty sick. Some (non-blatant) push off dunks are pretty sick. Absolutely every dunker i've watched has dunked on low rims at some point, whether it's in an actual contest or in some dunk mix. If someone isn't as creative or "original", they might steal a dunk. If someone doesn't have as much vert as his competitors, he might rely more on props or some boosts. If dunkers are competing on the same hoop, it all evens out in the end. Most fans aren't purists & most judges are clueless: those are the constraints. Dunkers who are purists themselves are great for the sport, I mean they keep it grounded & are good role models. But it can also be a slippery slope, purists tend to inject alot of negativity into those things that they love when they see youngins/outsiders encroaching. It's starting to look like a battle between the "purists" and the "progressives", typical evolution of sport I imagine - purists normally lose though, so be careful to not deprecate yourselves. As for me personally, I guess i'm finding it more annoying seeing a few dunkers and a few negative but not accomplished "hater-dunkers" fuel this debate even more than it should be fueled, turning it into some futile campaign that won't actually end well but will instead just cause alot of fissures. The dunk game has evolved & improved considerably over the last 10 years, fact - not opinion. peace.

I saw that dunk and thought the same thing. I hate those dunks in general. It's one thng when a pro does it with adults. but when joe bloe dunker does it, it's more infuriating than anything impressive.

same.. these are kids on the floor, not adults standing or hunched over like you normally see.

i agree, it's infuriating & honestly it seems a little "disordered" .. everything about that video would alarm me as a parent, adult, supervisor etc. Like imagine if I, while coaching at MSC, was jumping over little children and such ... i'd have hoped i'd be fired.

:/

I would think that you would do that just to get fired.  :ninja:

Why is this guy so full of himself?

Jordan Kilganon does like a double east bay and doesn't even react to half the craziness he does on a layup dunk lol

edit- no shit, he's not american, no wonder why he thinks he's the shit, in america he prob would have gotten his ass beat by someone......

the foreign asian athletes in america always seems to think they are better than they really are.... several immigrants at my courts used to be like that and just make themselves look dumb
