Iman Shumpert had a dunk idea that could only be described as linsanity. He was going to jump over a couch that Jeremy Lin was sleeping on which would of been either loved or hated by everybody depending on how much you love or hate Jeremy Lin. It’s too bad Iman had to withdraw from the dunk contest but thankfully we wont have to see this dunk.
Yes, he and Jeremy Lin had talked about doing a dunk in which Shumpert would vault over a couch — the symbol of Lin’s humble sleeping conditions.
“He was going to help me out,’’ Shumpert told The Post. “Once my knee was so sore, I started thinking about it: Am I going to be able to jump over the couch? All kinds of things to think about.’’
Derrick Williams plans on taking a little less prop route by just showing off his dunk ability. In practice he threw down a between the legs dunk off the glass which would please most dunk purist. View video
I doubt any of the contestants could pull these two dunks off but this is what I would love to see
