When James White was drafted by the Blazers in the 2006 NBA draft, dunk aficionados like me celebrated at the thought of seeing Flight White in the NBA dunk contest. Little did we know we would have to wait 7 years for that moment and when the moment came, if came and went faster than his first round exit from the contest. This isn’t White’s problem at all. We can blame the NBA 100% for making the dunk contest the dunk mess that it is. The other thing left on many of dunk fans wishlist was to see a Flight White YouTube worthy dunk in a NBA game and that moment came last night against the Orlando Magic.
With 2 minutes left in the game, White broke free and threw down a 2 hand hand windmill off 2 feet. Us dunk aficionados celebrated on YouTube and his teammates cheered on the bench. Kurt Thomas even got up because he knew ever since White came into the league when Kurt was on his 15th or 20th season that one day this day would come.
