It’s not often to watch 8 of the world’s best dunkers under one roof, on one side of the court, duking it out for a paycheck. Well that all went down this past Saturday over in Anaheim.
These guys are all used to showing out in a dunk contests. Although this contest was different. Cash was on the line to perform & execute their best flushes to win over the judges. The judging panel was lead by none other than Isaiah “JR” Rider, the originator of the FunkDunk. Some dunks were also to be imitated to the best of an individuals ability to stay in the contest and to keep their team in the contest. Some were executed to perfection and some weren’t.
Featuring the likes of John Clark, Rafal Lipinksi, Guy Dupuy, Justin Darlington, Kenny Dobbs, Isaac White, Porter Maberry, and Michael Purdie. The 8 pros were split into two teams to compete for the cash prize. The only ones who left disappointed were the ones who didn’t go home with a check & probably the kids who had to participate in their tournament which was happening simultaneously. Capturing these guys effortlessly glide through the air was something else. Until next time.
