(untitled 296)

Not that most of you are nearly as into pro basketball as I am, but the NBA All-Star Weekend is going on right now, and one of the events is the Slam Dunk competition. A couple of guys were worried that the contest would lack the flair and style of years past, so they bought a five-foot rim, set it up outside the arena, and got passers-by to dunk the ball and try to show up the stars.

Even if you aren't a basketball fan, there's just something awesome about seeing a five-year old pulling off a 360 windmill dunk. Check it out.

I watched it, but I couldn't tell which part was the 360 windmill dunk. Whatever that means.

It just seemed like a lot of people dunking the basketball. Or throwing it.

Nice. :) I watched the pro one last night (not my usual viewing choice, but that's being married for you) and actually quite enjoyed it. I had no idea there was such a thing.
