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.

Goodell also announced that vice president of community affairs and philanthropy Anna Isaacson will fill a newly-created role as vice president of social responsibility to oversee the development of education, training and support programs relating to domestic violence, sexual assault, and matters of respect.

    • Depth and unselfish nature carry Team USA
      Mon, 15 Sep 2014 04:08:26 -0400
      By Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - A spate of late withdrawals, a serious injury to Paul George and several marquee names missing appeared to put Team USA under a cloud for the 2014 Basketball World Cup and for future international competition. Instead, a group of sharp-shooting NBA regulars were unbeaten in Spain and produced a 129-92 victory over Serbia in the final to underline the depth the U.S. Stalwarts LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul were missing from the initial training camp, with Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love and Blake Griffin bowing out late in the process before Indiana forward George broke his leg in training and could now miss the NBA season.
