I'm planning on entering a slam dunk contest at my college that's coming up in a couple months. i have no previous contest experience. i'm a good, not great dunker. creativity is usually what wins though. and i have none. i'm thinking for my final dunk i could do the david lee dunk where you throw the ball up, take your shirt off, and have the ball bounce back up and finish it for an alley oop. he did it as his finale in the 2001 mcdonalds contest and won. i'm pretty consistent with it. but i don't know what else i could do for my routine. i can dunk one handed, two handed, do a tomahawk, catch oops, reverse... but i can't do a 360 or windmill or anything that advanced. got any creative ideas or seen any dunks that you think i could immitate that would score high? much appreciated.

Try using some type of props, i use to be quite a dunker myself until i blew out my knee. Maybe a Chair or a really short person.

Try to get someone to video tape your dunk practices and dunk contest.

I too would suggest props and just think of something original and you've never seen before.

Watch a lot of dunk contest videos and greatest dunks videos and copy some stuff that you can do?

Sorry, pretty lame suggestion, but that's all I've got.

How about you have a kite in your left hand and start running from the other rim. Then when you reach half court throw the ball up towards the kite and do a back flip and dunk with your foot.

If i were you i would watch Demar Derozan (i think thats how you spell it). His vids on youtube and other guys like Stromile Swift, Tyrus Thomas,Gerald Green, other really athletic dunkers and just try and bite of of them.

Get your school mascots costume and dunk maybe?

So you know what kind of dunks ur up against? If it's all suttle (not like the VC dunks), then you might be able to get away with something that's not impossible to pull off, but looks flashy.
Nash and STAT's team work a few years ago was fun to watch. Get someone to throw the ball off a back board at an angle. If you know any soccer players then they can head it like Nash did. You're sure to win if you can do that.

You should go for a one-handed dunk and while you are in the air take off one of your shoes and dunk that along with the ball.

:down:

And plus, Birdman SUCKED up the dunk contest.
Took him like 1000 tries to get his dunk right.
And the dunk wasnt even good.

I think the mascott one was a great Idea. Maybe you can go in from the side with two balls and dunking one in the front and the second as a reverse. A off the backboard oop to your self and turn it into a reverse jam. Put a gatorade bottle on the rim (the flat part of course) and grab it as you do a jam and take a drink when you land. Whatever you do just make sure it is technically sound and you should be fine. Figure out a way to get the crowd behind you as much as possible.

I saw some guy do one at a tournament in palm springs. where he had like 5 of those blood capsules in his mouth did a nasty dunk and when he came down he bit into the blood capsules so that it was running down his mouth and made a huge ROAR!! it was pretty intertaining. Just some thoughts man. Its all about creativity, energy, and being technical sound.

Yo man.
Im not knocking you or anything, so dont take it like that.
But, all you pretty much do is basic stuff.
One handed, two handed, reverse.
Honestly I dont see how you can win a dunk contest.

But props to you for being able to dunk.
It would be a dream of mine to dunk lol.
Im only 5'7. So, whoever puts you down, dont think anything about it.
At least you can dunk. I wish I was able to just throw down a simple one handed slam.

Good job man! :clap:

I know. I even stated in my original message that I'm not a great dunker. Those dunks on my YouTube profile are pretty old though. I've grown like an inch or two since then. I made some better vids with my friend brandonlamana the other night. I'll try and get them up soon. The only way I could win a contest is with creativity, which is the whole reason I made this thread.

Then what is "white"? No one is orignally from America. Everyone came from another country and was considered foreign at some point. Being white just means you have white skin.

I don't know how this measures up on the difficulty scale (probably too high?), but I thought this one was pretty creative:
