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.

    • Huang leads in Shenzhen as Watson struggles with green speed
      Thu, 16 Apr 2015 07:49:12 -0400
      (Reuters) - Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson made a late charge up the leaderboard to get within four shots of surprise leader, China's Huang Wen-yi, after Thursday's opening round of the European Tour's Shenzhen International. Playing for the first time since presenting Jordan Spieth with his green jacket at Augusta National, Watson reeled off three birdies in a row on his back nine to sign for a two-under-par 70 at the Genzon Golf Club. A former labourer who never picked up a golf club until he was 22, Huang won last month's Mainland China Qualifying Tournament by a whopping seven strokes and has continued his good form.
    • Triple-birdie Bubba casts Masters woe aside

      Bubba Watson quickly shrugged off the disappointment of relinquishing his Masters crown with a battling two-under par 70 Thursday to lie within striking distance of the lead at the Shenzhen International. American Watson admitted he struggled early in his opening round at the European Tour event after a rapid trip halfway across the world from Augusta, where he had finished one over par and 19 shots adrift of champion Jordan Spieth on Sunday. Watson sunk three birdies in a row from the fifth, his 14th hole after starting on the 10th, as the putting stroke that went awry at the season's first major returned with a vengeance in Shenzhen. "It was a slow start, you know, getting used to the greens -- the speed of them," said Watson at the southern Chinese city's Genzon Golf Club.
