The Ghetto Games Kings of Air Dunk Contest went down yesterday and although I was hoping to see the masked pit bulls, low riders, Roy Jones, Superman and the dunkers getting lap dances (seriously) like last year, I can’t say I was disappointed. The Latvia hosted event remains the most entertaining dunk contest in the world and here’s a few reasons why!
The Hosts Coming Out on Horses
The Dunkers Coming Out on Custom Bikes
This was a little more PETA friendly than the Bane looking Pit bulls.
A Slap the Backboard Competition
Remember when Dwight Howard slapped a sticker of his face on the backboard during his first NBA dunk contest. Most of these guys are 4-6 inches shorter than Dwight and jumped as high or higher than Howard.
