Will, Where Have You Been?!
Here’s a new video of 6’0 Will Bunton showing off his unreal hops with a few dunks including an under both legs dunk. He was a favorite dunker of mine a few years back when he was tearing up the NC Pro-Am in 2012 and when I got to see in person (twice!) during the 2012 NBA3x events I was running at the time. Here’s two amusing stories about Will at those events.
At the Denver NBA3x event, Will unofficially became the first man to ever dunk on every person on the court. Let me explain. A teammate missed a layup and since it’s 3 on3 all 5 players, this includes his two teammates, went up for the rebound but Will was out by the 3 point line. He went to crash the boards, outjumped everybody, caught the ball with 1 hand, cocked it behind his back and dunked on every woman, man and child under the basket. It might of been the best dunk I ever saw live….or maybe just that summer.
A few weeks later we were running another NBA3X event in Charlotte and Will came eventhough his two teammates bailed on him. I hooked him up with a photographer and some guy wearing jeans that said he could play. I might as well have given Will a gun shot to the foot and 10 shots of Vodka then these two handicaps. I don’t remember the score but I remember Will’s team losing their two games but I also remember Will scoring every point and blocking a defenders dunk attempt.
I wished I had some footage of these games! What I do have is a pic of him dunking (nice Ballislife shirt & socks!) at the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown and some footage of him at the 2012 NC Pro-Am.
