yes and no. lebron could be an epic contest dunker if he put his mind to it. he can touch 12' and he's strong as shit, there's no doubt in my mind he could do something ridiculous like a two-basketball reverse elbow hang if he put some effort into practicing it. but he won't, and that's fine: it wouldn't help him be a better basketball player. and i guess that's my point. dunking is a specialty now for some leapers with elite talent and athleticism, and guys who are basketball specialists can't go toe to toe anymore because they spend their time doing something that makes them millions of dollars instead.

none of vince's dunks are as great as the kilganon double reverse elbow hang. none. and he's 3-4 inches taller than kilganon is.


Agree completely.  And if I was LBJ...I wouldnt care about being a better dunker either when I'm making millions hooping! My only issue with him regarding the dunk contest is that he's said in multiple occasions that a) he'd do it and b) he'd win. Sorry, that shit doesn't fly where Im from...you back it up or get clowned lol

You can just see how much "reactive force" comes from the ground on Vince's first dunk at 0:05

true, this one is awesome. he whips it behind his head, like a super graceful two-handed tomahawk, maybe that's why it looks so nice?

EDIT: also, that video tells me three things. (1) vince was the GOAT, (2) many NBA players can windmill, and (3) there are some guys in the NBA who could win a dunk contest with yt dunkers if they put work into it, and why is the NBA dunk contest so lame then, and maybe this year will be fun.

speaking of the NFL combine, this dude broke the broad jump record and tied the vertical record. 44.5". that is two-handed-windmill-from-a-standstill territory.
