It wasn’t that I was a bad basketball player — relatively speaking, I was pretty good — but playing for a small high school meant my 6-foot-2, 195 pound frame, had to play the four, sometimes the five, if B-Rob was hurt or in foul trouble.
I learned to chisel the block with my rear end. Modeled my game after shorter forwards, like Charles Barkley or Larry Johnson, and read caroms, like a scientist. But one thing me and all of my friends could never do was dunk, so slapping the backboard after a steal and layup was a real thing of glory.
Such is not the case for gifted basketball players like Hawaii guard Quincy Smith, who lost a shoe, and still had enough hops to slam the off-footed dunk with two hands.
Check out the insane dunk below:
