LOS ANGELES — Get ready to add another item to your 2011 All-Star Weekend to-do list.
Friday night’s Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown will feature a competitor that could win Saturday night’s Sprite Slam Dunk Contest if we could get him added to the field.
Seriously, you have to see Terry Cournoyea, a 5-foot-9 jumping jack from Minneapolis with a jaw-dropping 53-inch vertical (I’m not challenging it either after watching “T-Dub” in action).
We got a chance to witness his movement, courtesy of HT’s main man and Timberwolves.com’s Jonah Ballow:
As flashy and phenomenal as they’ve both been during their turns as slam dunk champions, neither Nate Robinson nor Spud Webb has or had bounce like T-Dub.
In fact, who’s up for a Krypto-Nate–T-Dub dunk off?
