Flashback 6 years ago. Before the whole online basketball mixtape phenomenon. Before ballers had fans because of their YouTube mixes. Before YouTube even had widescreen HD videos. You had T-Dubb.
Type in any variation of “greatest dunker ever” or “best dunker in the world” in YouTube and multiple old videos will pop up showcasing a 5’9 freak of nature named Terry Cournoyea aka T-Dub. Some of these videos have up to 17 million views and all of them are jaw-dropping.
One of those jaw-dropping videos is his performance at the 2010 Nike Basketball 3ON3 Dunk Contest from 2010. If it wasn’t insane enough to watch a man who is only 5’9 jump over other people and get his head over the rim, T-Dub executed a 540 dunk!
Although he hasn’t appeared in many recent events or videos in the past couple of years, all true dunk aficionados know his name and remember how great he was at every event he showed up at.
