No more that 3 or 4 inches. The dude is incredibly long.

biggest dunk contest disappointment has to be james white, bar none. i was SO AMPED for that and he just failed, not even spectacularly. sigh, what could have been...

I think the NBA asked him too late, he was 30 (iirc) when he did the NBA dunk contest and he was 25 (or younger in that clip?) but I think also the pressure and hype might have gotten to him?

His double handed free throw dunk wasn't bad at all, it just felt and looked weak because he missed a few ft dunks before that and that just really kills the momentum when watching a dunk contest live.

No, grammatical nuances aren't capitalized. Independent clauses, however, should have predicates.

yeah i was really disappointed he wasn't selected when he was a rookie and not playing any minutes. it makes sense i guess, but i mean we did end up w/ jeremy evans (who??)

ouch this is worse than i remember

Knicks reserve James (Flight) White missed all seven of his dunk attempts in the second round and finished in last place in the Slam Dunk competition

the only ever stretch where i played NCAA college basketball on xbox (was that what it was called??), i used cincinnatti and just had james white run around the paint until he could dunk it over everyone. i dominated all my friends until one person realized the "take charge" button existed, i lost horribly thereafter, and never bothered playing again. so i poured one out after he lost that dunk contest.

btw i'll ride for gerald green's birthday cake dunk forever.

That cupcake dunk is so underrated because not many knew what he did.

He's also good at treating NBA players like they're illegal immigrants who should be paid under the table as cheap labor.

You forgot my expertise in the stretch 4, fantasy, rubber limbs, prediction, and Kobe Bryant.
