Prep dunker soars over 6-foot-11 teammate to win contest

Looking for the best dunker in the high school ranks? That contest is over. The kid’s name is Shaquille Johnson, and he has ridiculous, ridiculous hops.

Prep Rally first introduced you to Johnson in July, when summer highlight reels of his exploits were gaining attention and pushing the Auburn commitment’s stock into the realm of national significance. Well, somehow Johnson appears to have gained even more vertical lift since then, as the Milton (Ga.) High small forward proved in the dunk contest of the 2011 Myrtle Beach Beach Ball Classic, a prestigious event which has been won by the likes of Kobe Bryant in the past.

Yet, it’s questionable whether even the likes of Bryant could pull off what Johnson did in the clip above: He dunked above a 6-foot-11 teammate. Six-foot-11!!!

What’s even more impressive about the dunk is how easy Johnson made it look. The explosive forward took off from near the free-throw line in classic, Air Jordan fashion, then soared to the hoop directly over his teammate’s head, without so much as touching a hair on the head of teammate Jahlil Okafor (yes, he is a relative — a cousin to be exact — of onetime NBA rookie of the year Emeka Okafor).

That’s just crazy. Of course, Johnson wasn’t done there, either. He followed that dunk up with a nasty reverse windmill, then topped his evening off with a ridiculous 360 dunk (you can see that at the 4:10 mark of the video above) and then repeated his 6-foot-11 exploits just to prove the first slam wasn’t a fluke.

Whether or not Johnson turns out to be a star for the Tigers, someone should just sign him up for the annual collegiate slam dunk contest now. In fact, he might even be worth penciling in for a win. He’s that ridiculous, and given his steady improvement, who knows what he might pull off next.

    • Nash upbeat despite anticlimactic end to stellar career
      Tue, 24 Mar 2015 20:17:58 -0400
      By Mark Lamport-Stokes EL SEGUNDO, California (Reuters) - Steve Nash could have felt cheated after assorted injuries over the past two years culminated in his retirement from the NBA, but he prefers to focus on all the positives during a stellar career. A two-time NBA most valuable player who is one of the best point guards ever to grace the game, the 41-year-old Canadian held a news conference at the Los Angeles Lakers' practice facility in El Segundo on Tuesday to mark his formal farewell. "Obviously my career didn't end in the fashion that I wanted it to," Nash, smartly dressed in a navy blue suit, told Reuters after being warmly applauded by reporters and Lakers officials after the conference ended. "I feel very fortunate that I have played as long as I have done, regardless of the way it's ended." Nash, whose remarkable career also included two spells with the Phoenix Suns and one with the Dallas Mavericks, officially announced his retirement on Saturday in a letter published on The Players' Tribune website.
