It's your favorite dunk at the dunk contest of all time. Oh, man. Um, Aaron Gordon has a couple of them, Um, the one where he goes between his legs and jumps over the mascot underneath his legs, not even between underneath his legs, and then dunks the ball basically behind his back. Well, jumping over the mascot was pretty incredible. Um, obviously, the athletes are a little bit better today. They practice more donkey. That's why the donkey dunks looks so much better now than what they did 2030 years ago. But the other one that I'll throw in there, um, would have been from Vince Sanity. His first dunk, the reverse 3 60 windmill dunk. Um, that kind of got said everything off. I've never really seen anything like that before. And just his fluidity in the air And how clean he dunked it. That also is one of five ever dunks of all time. I chose this gift. And so where would you put the Isaiah Rider underneath the leg dunk in sort of the the shrine of of all time dunks. Is it a top five or top 10? Top 20 top 50? Well, I mean at the time. Obviously, it was top five, but as we've continued to move along here, it's definitely fallen out of favor. I think the between the legs dunk has almost become too popular at the time and what it's represented to the dunk contest. It's definitely a top 10 dunk. Um, but I don't know that there's it's not really been the most appealing dunk to me ever. But, um, it definitely has its place. Yeah, I mean, my I think my third grade brain just can't get over how much mind blown happened to me when I when I watched this happen and, like, you know, like, I mean, because I think one of them people forget around these dunk contest. You know, d Brown and his famous you know, uh, elbow dunk was like one of the top dunks. Was it Cedric Ceballos? And he did the bandana or whatever. I mean, somebody. Yeah, like in some of these dunks. I mean, they were very, very simple. Um, there was a lot of value. I mean, Dominique Wilkins, one dunk champion dunk contest champions just by dunking hard, you know, like he would do a windmill so hard that he'd win, right? And it wasn't didn't have anything to do with anything else that just he did it hard and like, So that dunk in that era was just so like it was like Pleasantville. When the color hits the black and white, who could be like it was just like, Wait, what just happened? I need 100 shot to tell me what to think. Here. Yeah, that is true. Did change your perspective on what dunking was because you never really seen it before. Yeah. Now these guys Yeah. Do you want Levin and some of the E? Remember that string of, like, Vince Carter? It was, you know, it could do everything. And then Jason Richards came in and it could do literally everything. And, like, exactly lean could do everything like. And now it's down to the point where, you know, I almost wish that they had more challenges set up to them. You know, like you Can someone push you when you go out for a dunk? Or like can you? You know, How do you like? I don't know. I don't know how you do it, but like just now, with the Internet. I've seen it all, So I wanna put weirder tighter constraints because I've seen some Rando kid. We literally can't hoop it all. All he can do is jump 16 inch vertical right on the Internet, like right, well, so the other thing that will stay about the between the legs dunk I think Aaron Gordon got robbed twice of the dunk crown in this last year. I think it was Derrick Jones, but they went into their dunk off and I think they both had gotten, like, three or four straight fifties and every dunk. Derrick Jones was just changing his position on the court and going between his legs again like it was literally every time. So while it was super creative at the time, I feel like it's almost become like this cliche dunk that should be like in trying to something great when you know probably 95% of the players can do it now really hard. I'm going next
