I know any list on the internet gets nitpicked to death, but he could have easily made that the 30 worst dunks ever by mentioning Chris Andersen. Birdman's gotta fly.

I really didn't need to see that kid on the trampoline getting his knee ripped apart by the hoop again.

From the article: And boom goes the dynamite! Those were great videos. You're right chico, that trampoline video is brutal. I think my favorite part of a homemade "failed" stunt, is the fact that the person holding the camera doesn't ever do anything to help. They just keep on filming. And laughing. This seems to remind me of my childhood a little bit. Sniff.

So many are examples why uncoordinated white guys just weren't made to dunk a basketball. If you need a rickety, 8-foot hoop to dunk, or have to utilize chairs, trampolines, etc. to reach the rim, you probably better stick to your outside game. The stiff smashing into the chick's face as he attempts to jump over her is classic.

Unreal, I'm glad I can't dunk now! I'll stick to my perimeter game...

A friend of mine from college used to make dunk videos with his friends in middle/high school. He never showed me anything like these videos, though! And that kid ripping his knee up in the hoop made both my (surgically repaired, multiple times) knees ache. But at the same time, if I was there age and didn't see a broken bone sticking out of his leg, I'd laugh at the absurdity of him hanging upside-down from the rim by his leg, too.

I read the title as "The 22 Worst DRUNKS Ever", and I began to wonder where justgary had met my ex-wife. Now I'll have to go back and look at the videos.

I love how the guy sets up the "face off the rim" dunk by saying, "Watch this, it's gonna be amazing." No humility in that driveway.
