      11:42 Why are you giving the edge to Mike instead of Jordan?
      I honestly don't understand that
      Also, how weird is it that it's "Mike" vs. "Jordan"?

    Triple jumpers would utterly smash everything in their path and it wouldn’t even be close. It’s quite literally the perfect explosive movement for dunking. I would give anything to see the incentivized to show their bounce

      @chadwick47 That’s not correct. Triple jump focused very much on the bounce as well. A triple jumper can also jump high. Because you need that bounce and power to jump forward. If people want to learn more about triple jump you can find many videos on PLclip about the training.

      Wilt the Stilt was a triple-jump champion. He did a running dunk-jump for a foul shot in a game and the rules were immediately changed to not allow it.

      @Ken D. but I would argue now and days being a “dream team” doesn’t guarantee a championship. Back in the day maybe but not now. We’ve seen this year after year. The competition is too high and it’s hard to keep a “dream team” whole and healthy throughout a season so you really don’t know how the season will end. The good thing about today vs the past is that every year can be different. It’s harder to really say who will win so now casual fans can’t just bandwagon on some team every year because they’ve won or been to the finals the last 5 years… That’s boring. I like not knowing and having to use actual basketball analysis to determine who has the best shot to win. To be honest the whole “loyalty” to a team thing is a thing owners made up to shame players from leaving an organization and give them a bad rap, and a lot of fans bought into it. Don’t get me wrong I’m not a big fan of wanting out of a contract unless something really really bad happens which I haven’t seen yet. I believe if u agreed I should play it out. Stop doing long contracts. It’s that simple (the caveat to that however, is that owners and GMs can just trade players away whenever they want without regard to that players wishes even if they did nothing wrong, so essentially they are doing the same thing and breaking a contract they had soooo kind of pay back now, right? 🤷🏾‍♂️ )… But if that contract is over that player has every right to go elsewhere if they feel they have better opportunities in another place. They owe that team nothing after the contract is over. That’s in any profession. Basically, this should be treated like a real business instead of a slave plantation. Just something to think about.

      @Ken D. players wanting to win rings is great for the sport. The players who sit back and don’t care about winning are the issue with the NBA. If you are personally salty that your team isn’t willing to spend for a dreamteam, that’s on your team, not on the other teams for doing what’s necessary. Sincerely, a cavs fan

    I’ve heard a lot of ideas, but this is the best one yet. I like it a lot. As long as we limit it to 3 attempts max, and if you run up it’s an attempt. Idc if you stop, or lose the ball, or whatever. You get 3 chances with the ball in ur hand, PERIOD.

      What if the dunk contest was part of the All-Star game? In-game dunks would be so much more entertaining, you could have judges on the sideline or just let the announcers do the judging. Any time there is a dunk during the game it gets a score and the player with the highest scoring dunk throughout the whole game wins. There will be wide open fast break dunks and maybe some dunks on defenders. A guy with a high dunk score might start defending the rim to protect his lead, and then HE gets dunked on! This would add another layer to the dunk contest and to the All-Star game itself.

    *Would love to see it.* Especially to give wider recognition to the world-class track and field talents who, just like Mikes, Conley Sr. and Powell, would be the most likely (besides NBA players) to win it, just because they, and their sports, by and large, represent the best of pure athleticism (i.e., the much larger athletic talent pool resulting from not limiting the total contestant field, from which to draw, to people with world-class- [i.e., ‘NBA-‘] level basketball skillsets means that, statistically speaking, it’s pretty much inevitable that, every year, there’s gonna be a few, if not hella, people from amongst the global track and field community whose bunnies will exceed those of whomever from the league shows up that day, if not, even, those of everyone in whole league, entirely).
    Honestly, I think the league - whether that means the front offices, or the players, or both - probably already intuitively knows, or at least suspects, this could be a likely outcome (especially if you expand “track and field athlete” to just mean any athletic person, as in the case of the tons of PLclip dunkers and dunk league dunkers, the world over) and, for that reason, will probably not ever be likely to do this, simply, for fear of possibly having its players embarrassed by, relatively speaking, ‘randoms’ (and, therefore, having its prestige, as a league, tarnished by virtue of the very-bad-for-PR, implied-message it’d inadvertently be sending to global basketball fandom and what - as, would likely be conceivable to league executives whose job it is to worry about viewership rate stability [and, ideally, increases] - the average fan might be left with as a takeaway, which is: “yeah, NBA’s still cool, I guess, but bruh.. [now, we know] they don’t even have the best dunkers. You gotta go to PLclip for that”).
    That might not sound so bad, at first (that is, it may sound like an unlikely problem for these hypothetical executives to ever have to worry about). But also consider that the possible consequence of that thought, by those same “average fans”, when its brought to one of its possibly likely conclusions, is said “average fan,” then, saying/thinking something along the lines of “why would I wanna play [officially NBA-licensed and, therefore, NBA-cash cow] (NBA-) 2K when I could be playing a, presumably funner, [non-NBA affiliated] game featuring only the world’s best dunkers?”
    [The only solution to this problem is for the NBA to take seriously the endeavor of developing, and scouting for, its own dunk league, as an ancillary, with all the non-NBA dunkers, for, if nothing else, the express purpose of getting them under contracts, and securing rights to their names and likenesses for their use in the production of any potential video games (or other similar such digital renderings). | Note: the creation of such a league would perform a separate function from its developmental leagues but, in some ways yet to be foreseen, may work synergistically with, rather than in complete isolation from, those developmental leagues. Then again, perhaps, that might be too fanciful a thought and, more realistically, the dunk league would never be a launchpad to the NBA, rather, it would, more likely, end up being one possible route, or stop, some unlucky exiting NBA players may, due to a variety of circumstances, end up visiting towards the ends of their professional basketball careers. Many probably wouldn’t take it but, point is, the option would then be there. | And, finally, to anyone out there whose job, when done well, entails, generally speaking, stuff like attempting to put ideas such as this one into practice for the benefit of the league: first off, mazel tov🥂; second off, you’re welcome 😉🤝.]

    It took me a minute to realize that Mike Powell still holds the record for the longest jump ever recorded......but lost to Mike Conley who holds the record for longest jump to slam a basketball. Both guys named Mike, both from the same year, both still hold the records for longest jumps......what a crazy coincidence. This is a lot like the Kennedy/Lincoln coincidence lol.

    I really want to see the nba do a 1v1 all star event instead of the dunk contest. A Giannis vs Embid battle to 11 seems a million times better than what we saw last week

      @IronWhy lol people are milking this injuries thing for dunk contests and all other things. These guys go all out in pickup games when the off season arrives for free. It’s the embarrassment factor that they avoid especially because they think it will impact their brand.

      @Chris Webster I think if you're going to do two on two you might as well do three on three because the dynamic is so much more complex. (Disclaimer I'm pulling the following statement out of my ass:) Most basketball plays can be reduced to three people but not two. As De La Soul and Schoolhouse Rock said, three is the magic number XD.
      That said there is a three on three League that approximately zero people watch I don't think I've ever seen it myself

      I actually think a 2 on 2 tournament would be better, or even 3 on 3. I like seeing good passes, and with that much empty space, there would be some really nice ones, I’m sure.

      i still want to see a free-throw-distance dunk, but coming *from the baseline, or coming in diagonally. That would be tuff since the dunker couldnt time his takeoff from a fixed point, aka free throw line

    Wilt and Russell . Your young, so you would have to look this up. Wilt was 7'2" and was around 52" vertical. Both could take two steps, jump, and dunk from behind the free throw line.
    When Wilt was at Kansas, he was dunking his free throws in practice. Scared the heck out of the governing board, and they changed the rule. You can't break the plan of the line, until the ball hits the rim.
    You seem obsessed with Track records.
    Russell was the number one or two in the world at USF with a 6'9 /2" jump.
    Wilt, with no real practice, was good enough to win his area with a 6'6" jump, in converse tennis shoes.
    Wilt also ran the 440, and was an excellent triple jumper.
    Russell's track record puts him at number one or two in the world at the time.
    Much like Secretariat, both have accomplished many, many things that will never be touched, or broken.
    When Wilt quit, he turned to pro volleyball, and played at the top of that game for 20 years, along with owning part, or all of the tour company.
    When your video showed him as an MC, I was thinking at that time, he would well have been able to win the contest, and, Wilt
    has said many times he could dunk from the top of the key.
    Physically, NO ONE in the current or past NBA came even close in athletic ability to Wilt, and Bill Russell.

    I’m glad I never watched this year’s dunk contest. Just the first dunk in the highlights, and I saw what he was trying to emulate; he missed the second try. You DO NOT MISS THAT ICONIC DUNK on the second try. East bay, off handed, from behind the glass. I’d give you one warmup and three tries max to get at least 7’s across the board. Holy shot that looked so painful to watch!

    As I wait for the next episode, I wanted to say that I appreciate the format of your videos. It reminds me of this podcast called “Lore”. You start with an interesting tidbit and then somehow segue into a totally different but interesting topic. Compelete with non-distracting music bed and then, you end your video with a great question or call to action to your followers.
    I love it. Not sure if you took notice of that or if there’s some standard content creation package thst u follow or if it’s just uncanny, but I love this channel. Can’t wait to see more

    Hi. I just want to say that at 53 yrs of age. White dude who played high school basketball as a power forward….. You have BY FAR the best basketball channel…
    The history, your exceptional research , your edits, your voice…. REALLY…. you should absolutely be on TV . Everything you present is always well researched, well documented by you, and especially amazingly well presented so that we ,I do, always watch to the end your videos. You have a amazing talent, and as an entrepreneur now here in Quebec, Canada. You should have no reason not to present and TV sports channel your work… Go for it. You should be on the NBA commentary , or if not the leader in your small documentaires presented on nation wide NBA Sports channel. Congratulations and be very proud of work…
