Yesterday I didn’t go to class. Not a shocker, since I’ve been inconsistent with my attendance. And it certainly won’t be my last absence either. Yet I was so glad i got to witness the College 3 pt. & dunk contest. Doug Anderson’s performance was Air Canada-esque.
The degree of difficulty adds to the spectacle of a dunk. A slam dunk represents brute force and power, but when it is more than just a simple put back it becomes special. It’s like a combination of dubstep ans classical music in sports form. Doug Anderson’s performance was amazing because he went Da Vinci last night, but more remarkable was that as he threw the ball down (each dunk got a perfect score) he made it look so effortless, so easy.
According to Anderson he didn’t “even stretch.” That is how easy it was for him. But it was amazing. I know I have written vaguely about the spectacle, so do yourself favor: WATCH THE VIDEO. He might never hit the NBA, or he just might. But Anderson has done something the League has been yearning for a long time, bring the slam dunk contest back. That’s the best perfomance of this decade so far.
is there such a thing as too much bromance?
