NBA All-Star Weekend Inspired Dunk
He was asking whether he could get a 10 by doing the bounce the ball off the backboard dunk. He also thought that if his first grade buddy, Chet, grew to be 7 feet tall - he could jump over him as a finale dunk. I told him he needs to add a bit more technical and creative flare to the dunks so he pulled this one out - a big power body stretched out thunder dunk. He won the North Seattle 1st Grade Dunk contest for 2012. And he said, "Hey Dad, watch...No watch this one. Dad, Dad, watch this one," about 70 times. Cold garage got warmed up by his intensity. He finished by working on his windmill and double pump dunks. Here is footage from another day of garage dunking - vimeo.com/35994520
Nate Robinson, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant, and Blake Griffin are all inspirations for this little guy.
Notice he is wearing his University of Washington Husky Basketball T-shirt - previous home of newly crowned Dunk Contest Champion Terrence Ross (Husky #23).
