Guy Dupuy sees Blake Griffin’s car, raises him a between-the-legs dunk

March 10, 2011


And 1 Streetballer Guy Dupuy pulls off a nice between the legs dunk over a car

In case you haven’t noticed, ever since the ban was lifted back in 1976, dunk shots have been all the rage.  Seriously, it’s not just me. They’re kind of a big deal.

Only weeks ago, that Blake Griffin guy dunked over a 2011 Toyota Corolla Kia Optima to win the NBA’s Slam Dunk Contest.  A few days ago, Jacob Tucker of D-III Illinois College compiled an impressive dunk shot curriculum vitae in hopes of getting invited to this year’s NCAA Dunk Contest.

Now, And1 Live Streetballer Guy Dupuy has entered the fray — possibly upstaging Mr. Griffin in the process. Check out Dupuy’s beasty, between-the-legs dunk shot over a BMW convertible (after the jump)…

Video: Jacob Tucker and his 50-inch vertical want to be in the NCAA Dunk Contest

And who could blame him? Seriously, without qualification, this is some of the best dunk shooting I’ve ever seen. The fact that Tucker checks in at just 5’11” makes it that much more impressive, so one would think he’d be a serious contender at this year’s contest.

Problem is, Jacob is a Senior guard at Division III Illinois College — i.e. he hasn’t been a regular on Sports Center the past few years, and thus would almost certainly get overlooked amongst more high profile candidates.

With that in mind, Tucker turned to the almighty equalizer of the dunk shot universe — YouTube — to drum up support for his dunk contest campaign:

Hey guys I’m Jacob Tucker and I just finished up my senior year of basketball at Illinois College. This video was made in an attempt to get in the 2011 NCAA dunk contest. I’m 5’11” with a 50 inch running vertical…. I want to send a special thanks to everyone that has helped this grow! This has been incredible!

Well, you’ve got Frump’s vote, Jacob. Of course, in the wake of The Huffington Post, The Big Lead, et al…that probably means very little.

Good luck nonetheless!
