Professional Slam Dunk Artist Kenny Dobbs and the dude he convinced to set himself ablaze for this man-on-fire dunk have some serious balls. The rim and net must have been coated with some lighter fluid too, because the whole basket goes up in a flames in a truly mesmerizing jam that I've watched several times now.

Dobbs performed the stunt to apparently promote his pricey ($49.95) vertical training program, so you too can achieve an absurd 48" vertical and throw down some sick jams. Unless, of course, you're fat, have balky knees and/or you're white.

Obviously don't try the pyrotechnic dunk  home.
