NBADraft.net Dunk Contest- Anyone Interested?

After Legendary Poster posed the idea for a pick up game with .net users, I got to thinking if there was a legitamte way to have a basketball related contest of some sort. Then i remembered a few years ago a dunk group on youtube had a low ring dunk contest. Basically useres submitted videos and they judged it.

I thought we could do something similair here. Anyone who wants can go out and do a minute or two's worth of dunks, film it and make video out of it. Upload it to a thread and we can judge based on the 'likes'.

Furthermore we could have categories to do with rim height, so everyone can have a go. I figure seeing as its summer in America ( winter where i am but still) that it wouldn't hurt to take advantage of it.

Feedback and ideas welcome

Cheers

There should be height limits

There should be height limits for the different sized rim levels. Count me in for 8 foot rims. Lol. I like the idea, let's see of we can get some people to do it

That's actually European Baller's wife... he can't handle all that so he comes on here to release his frustration and call us idiots for not having Nik Papapapapaloupus on the draft board

Well, I am 6 feet tall, but with my hops I probably couldn't dunk on a 6 and a half foot rim, lol. And yes, a Three Point Contest is also a great idea.

Listen

So that guys can't post videos of their more athletic, more black friends dunking, they should include footage introc=sucing themselves by their somewhat ridiculous usernames (Ex: "Hi, my name is ProudGrandpa *dunk*)

I can do a one hander on a good day, not enough to win a dunk contest, but I can still do it.

I'm like Blake Griffin on 8 1/2, though...Kendall Marshall on 10 haha

I can grab rim with one hand

I can grab rim with one hand off one leg. It's impressive to me. Lol. I'm only 5'8" though. That's why I want to participate on 8 foot rims. I'm short enough. Haha

Looks like we've got a few

Looks like we've got a few people interested.

In about a week or so I'll create a few different threads. An 8 foot dunk, 9 Foot dunk and 10 Foot. Also Trick shots if people are keen. Post your videos in the respective threads and we can go from there.
