If you ever get a chance to meet former NCAA dunk contest champion Jacob Tucker then you will agree he’s one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. If you ever get a chance to workout with the former Harlem Globetrotter then you will agree he’s a monster and you know you just f**** up now (Bill Duke voice).
Here’s how I described Tucker when I first met him back in 2011 at a Sprite Showdown Dunk Contest: Jacob is a machine like Drago from Rocky 4. He’s 5’10 with a skin disorder that makes him look white (JK Jacob) and grasshopper hops. But those hops aren’t born this way hops either, those are the hops of a true athlete that spent countless hours in the gym and taking care of his body physically, mentally and with a strict diet. I went to breakfast with the guy and watched him eat two full plates of scrambled eggs and then a couple of bananas as I ate a few sausage links covered in gravy. He then went out in 100+ degree San Antonio heat and won a dunk contest while I was looking for shade to take pictures from.
Since that day, he’s put out some of the most insane and extreme hoop training vids I’ve ever seen, and since today is his birthday, I figure I would honor him by showing the best “Oh Helllllllllllllllllll No!” videos he’s done.
