Scattered Brilliance

From my brain to paper (or pixels as the case may be)

Jamario Moon wets our whistle on YouTube

The NBA dunk contest will be relevant again this year and it might be grass roots build up on YouTube that pushes it back there. It started with Rudy Gay calling out to the community to help choose his dunk (which I covered here). And there have been top ten dunk video montages put together and circulated for each of the four contestants;

Gerald Green, Minnesota Timberwolves (Defending Champion)
Dwight Howard, Orland Magic
Rudy Gay, Memphis Grizzlies
Jamario Moon, Toronto Raptors

    But I stumbled on the icing on the cake today thanks to the community over at Yardbarker in Jamario Moon’s teaser video for a dunk that will knock your socks off.

    Moon, an ex-Harlem Globetrotter who has a growing following of NBA faithfuls, shows off his stuff in a YouTube promo. Stick around until the end for the cliffhanger, it’s a little staged and cheesy, but totally worth it!

    In case you missed it, here’s a screenshot of where Moon took off from for his two handed jam.

    That’s just sick! The only way he could top that would be to pull an “Over the Moon” and dunk over himself!

    I haven’t been this excited for a dunk contest in a long time. It’s about time the NBA made this hyphy again.
