    Guy looks like a smaller version of Jeff Shepherd.

    Sick hops. Dude looks like he's coming off a mini tramp on some of those dunks. Ridiculous!

    What is there to say about that last dunk? They make a huge deal of the East Bay Funk dunk but he does a 360 between the legs and flushes it. All men were created equal my rear end.

    Indeed he did. You kinda of got the feeling in his youtube video that alot of those dunks had been practiced, rehearsed etc. Actually pulling them off in the dunk competition is pretty impressive.

    BTW, when is the last time a D3 guy was in the dunk competition? Thank you Youtube.

    Only seen one other guy that was his height, build, and race that could almost get up like that. I know his vertical wasn't near 50 but this was also when we were 18-19, I really think he could have if he'd continued playing basketball but instead he went on to a quality life of drugs, alcohol, and embarrassment to associate with ever having known him.

    Who ever said that White Men Can't jump is definitely wrong! This kid has major hops!

    I was seriously doubting he really has a 50 in vertical till I saw the dunk at the 1:40 mark. After that one, I said OK, maybe the dude does have a 50 in vert. That still seems like an awful high vertical jump number but the guy can jump for sure. And he has some very creative dunks in that clip.

    He won the dunk contest last night too. He had a 45" vertical in one of his dunks last night.
