They might have to rename the Houston Rockets Blacktop Battle Dunk Contest to the Sir Issac Annual Dunk Exhibition. Today’s win for dunk phenom Issac White, who is currently travelling with the Harlem Globetrotters, marks the 4th year in a row that Issac has won the event.
For his championship clinching dunk, the 5’10 Issac took the the 6’0 championship trophy and placed it in front of streetball’s Konfuzion, then leaped over both and put down one of the most vicious between the leg dunks I’ve ever seen. I’m sure judges Patrick Beverly, Greg Smith, Omri Casspi, Francisco Garcia, Chandler Parsons and James Harden would also agree.
“It was much better, seeing some unbelievable dunks, some dude how he put it between his legs and over somebody and over a 6-foot trophy…we had a lot of fun today,” Beverley said.
“It was great these guys showed that they can jump,” Smith said. “The champion, I’ve seen him do warmups in the gym. I knew he had it and the fans came out to support it, so it was a good event today.
Issac was equally excited about putting on a show for his home crowd.
“I do a lot of stuff around the world and I barely get to show off in front of my fans or my family, so for me to come back and to do an event for the Rockets, my home team, and my family and friends, it’s exciting.”
Shout out to Jay Brown who put on another great performance (I owe you some more gear).
Shout out to Chrislord Templonuevo for putting on another great event. Day 2 of the Blacktop Battle continues on Sunday.
Now let’s take a look at Issac’s past wins.
