Dunk Showdown: Monkey vs Elephant (seriously)

Published on September 9th, 2014 by Astramskas, David | 690 views

If you think this post is pretty ridiculous then you can blame my kids for suggesting I post these vids on Ballislife. But I actually think it’s pretty cool watching animals show off their verts like this monkey from Thailand.

I’m not as impressed with this elephant’s vert because he can dunk without leaving his feet.

But so can this 7’8″ Harlem Globetrotter.

If you still think this Dunk Showdown post was a bad idea then I’ll respond by saying it’s no worse of an idea than the NBA’s first and last NBA Slam Dunk Contest “Dunk in” from 2010. If the NBA didn’t have enough bad ideas to ruin the dunk contest, they created a showdown event the night before to decide who the final contestant was going to be. ┬áDeMar DeRozan won the showdown/dunk-in and then got screwed by the judges in the contest.
