not sure. I saw it on TNT last night. tbh, the full episodes probably aren't worth watching.. they are over-produced, way too much commentary etc.

young hollywood looks so much bigger now.

Guy might be (OK, IS) a complete retard, but he's killing them. Kilganon - the same. I wonder what Jordan Kilganon's max vert is nowadays.

Chase Skinkis was there too, lel.

G-Smith had two nasty dunks:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H_g7zG-5IE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H_g7zG-5IE</a>



maberry's first dunk was crazy, nasty hight and a quick throw down.. looked sick

the best dunk of the night might have been myree.. that's pretty crazy.

Check out 1:45

Marberry is 5'5 (if he really is) - that's 1.65 meters tall. Rim is at 3.05 - he needs to jump 1.40 m to be head to rim. That's 55.11 inches.

the real question is, when is kilganon gonna break out the double reverse arm hang. because i'm pretty sure that's still my favorite dunk.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

g-smith's btl off glass was nice.

kilganon's first dunk was one of my favorites.. you don't see anyone 180'ing OVER someone.

Tonights episode isnt half bad...watching it while squatting lol! Kilganon was dope as usual and Kenny Dobbs as well so far. Kinda disappointed in Haneef but then again Toddday says hes battling injury so alright. What kills me is Guy claiming a damn 59" vert and these guys believe it. Smh

ahh ya.. it's kind of "gimmick-ish" and i'm not a fan of gimmick-dunks.. but that dunk is an exception. i love it.




disappointed in how the last episode went.. props to maberry but he did the "same dunk" several times.. just jumped over people of different heights etc. impressive but not anywhere near the creativity of dobbs/jordan/guy.

jordan kilganon to me is the best.. he's got so much up his sleeve.. so much creativity. dude does dunks no one is doing.

^Agreed. Porter has dumb bounce but cmon man....same dunk not to mention Shaq ducked a bit.

I gotta give it to Jordan.  Dobbs fire dunk is...eh. Guy missed. Jordan not only had a higher degree of difficulty but he (and dobbs) hit theirs on the first try...

maybe if Dobbs BTL'd or something difficult over the guy on fire.. he just did a simple dunk.. gimmick = bleh.

ya.. i dno why i get excited about contests like this.. i'm always let down. The judging ALWAYS sucks.

i got really annoyed when southerland defeated g-smith.. g-smith did BTL off glass and a nasty slingshot.. southerland just did simple dunks while jumping over motorcycles. bleh.

stopped being AS interested when I realized how lame the judging was. I like how the NBA Sprite slam showdown stuff was judged.. Myree + Darryl Dawkins + Los -> those guys could judge... but that's rare, I mean they actually understand dunk competitions.

whatever.. some great dunks in the series for sure.
