This year’s NBA Slam Dunk Contest was a dud. There were too many misses, too many drones, and there was zero electricity in the building without Zach LaVine.
The Ohio State football team got a fresh shipment of the new LeBron’s and held their own dunk contest this week. It put the sorry-ass NBA product to shame.
Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes stable of 5-star athletes showed they’re more than capable of attacking the rim when they’re not beating Michigan repeatedly.
The dunk quality wasn’t quite on the NBA level, but the atmosphere during the contest is incredible, with the entire team circled tightly around like an Oklahoma circle drill. It’s Fight Club.
Linebacker Malik Harrison took the crown by jumping over a teammate for an authoritative spike. He got mobbed for his efforts.
Helluva show by the Buckeyes. Look for Jim Harbaugh to hold a three-point shootout next week at a waterslide park.
