Video: 5-star forwards nearly bring down rim at Elite 24


The Under Armour Elite 24 event had provided some pretty memorable moments over the last ten years. Saturday night, one more was created at the tenth anniversary of the event.

College Basketball Talk shared a video of five star players Bam Adebayo (2016) and Michael Porter Jr. (2017) accidentally combining for a crazy dunk in the first half. Both players went up for an offensive rebound and both ended up dunking the ball at the same time. What resulted was a crazy dunk that resembled Shaquille O’Neal’s rookie-year dunk that broke the rim.

Naturally, most of the crowd went nuts. That probably wasn’t because they landed a crazy dunk, but because the entire goal nearly flipped onto the top of them and the other players on the floor.

Adebayo and Porter are both considered to be some of the best players in their respective classes. I now know why they will make immediate impacts once they get to campus.

At least we know they will both play hard on the offensive end of the court.
