Damn good question lol!

As a motivational factor maybe toss up his vids from 5-6 years ago where he could barely dunk 9'9".

his oldest videos (2009) have him dunking pretty authoritatively on 10' -- windmills, two-handers, etc. nothing like what he's doing now, obviously. but he could dunk easily at 17.

I KNOW he used to have a vid of him barely getting a dunk on like 9'9 or 9'10 and his brother going crazy. High school gym I think he was like 16 maybe? It was on his channel for forever. :/ hmmmm.


Edit: He said in a interview with Just-Fly sports he first dunked at 16 and was 6ft tall. Coincides with the video I saw but a quick search of youtube brought up squat. :/

^^^ True story.
I was subscribed to his yt before he dunked 10', he was posting lower rim dunks.
Then one day he goes to the gym and throws down a hard tomahawk off a lob , just like that.
Those old dunks aren't up anymore? Pity, they were last time I checked...

The lob dunk is. The description is vague as to if it was his first dunk or not tho. Timeline is about right.

Yup, just checked too. That's his first 10' on cam for sure. It is 25 June 2009.

This is his friend Pat Kingsley introducing him to the yt dunk community 15 days earlier:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9LeaVxKAKg
He says he can dunk 10' in the description.

I do remember that specific video you are saying, can't find it. It was a couple of months before the 10' dunk, Rim was 9'9'' or 9'10'', he could dunk it rather good but it made you wonder if he could dunk 10'. I remember very clear that i didn't expect at all when i saw that 10' lob.

Whatever, he is #1 right now imho. Word , between all those beasts/legends out there, currently i feel he is the best!

yup, been fun watching him from the 'beginning'.

What makes him the best in my opinion, is that he's starting to prove creativity in dunking is limitless. He's achieving dunks that are making video games look bad.

I was going to post more but I thought of a fun little project that I'm going to put together tomorrow. Might be a fun project for the forum.

word, my butthurt self just wanted to make sure that he's not some unathletic guy who turned himself into a great dunker through gritty grit and scrappy hard work. can dunk on 10' by 16 at 6' tall = very athletic. his ceiling was always high. he just keeps getting closer and closer to it than pretty much anyone else right now.

I can roll with that LBSS. Because over the last few years ive often wondered what my ceiling would have been had I started earlier. He was athletic to begin with yes but by no means a 'freak' like tdub. That makes me feel a little better about being able to make it to the 'next level'.
