    Who couldn't dunk when they were 18?

    I think in both instance is is behind his body or his body is between the camera and the ball, if the instances you are talking about occur around 35 seconds in (behind back or in back of shirt even) and 1 minute mark ( I think the ball is on his chest after the dunk) but not sure on either, as indeed the ball is not seen after the dunk.

    yeah, well I am pretty sure that that is not you in your avatar, and I think the guy might be fake as well.

    You know, if you just sewed the bottom of that net shut, you could save that guy a lot of flailing about.

    I played volleyball and studied martial arts... used to have a great vertical jump but that was just an amazing show of coordination.

    Could never play basketball worth a damn.

    Impressive jumps! At best, the highest vertical jump I used to be able to muster was to cup my palm on the basket's rim. My horizontal jump was somewhat better. On my high school track team at age 15, in 1965, (I know, I'm old) I was able to do the standing long jump at 11' 6". But this white thing, I don't know. When I compare my skin color to a sheet of white paper, well, it differs.
