This Recruit Dunking Over Three People Proves I Have Become Desensitized By Incredibly Athletic Feats
Let's just call it quits and get rid of any and all dunk contests forever. What's even the point anymore? I don't think anything can ever top the show that Zach Lavine and Aaron Gordon put on during NBA All Star Weekend, and nothing proves that quite like my instinctual reaction to this high school kid launching himself over multiple people to throw one down. I watched this dunk and thought "meh, I have seen better". I started critiquing the fact that he didn't get his second leg fully over the THREE grown ass men he was jumping over. At first I even thought the celebratory backflip that he did at the end was more impressive than what he was actually celebrating. The whole gym went nuts and all I could think was "okay, settle down, it wasn't THAT great" like some old curmudgeon that thinks the art of the layup has been lost. Thankfully I am not an old curmudgeon, but what I am is someone that has seen too many unthinkably athletic slam dunks to let one that's not properly executed get my dick hard. If I was there would I be screaming, yelling, jumping up and down and waving my '10' card around in the air so fast that it was unreadable? That goes without saying. However, while watching it through a computer screen I have no choice but to give it an '8', and that says all you need to know about how insatiable I have become watching people that are ridiculously more athletic than myself do things I could never even dream of doing. The market has become saturated, and you're going to need to do more to stand out than only partially hurdling an entire family's worth of people.
