Chinese basketball player tries to dunk over five people, fails gloriously

Monday January 19th, 2015


The Chinese Basketball Association's dunk contest does not have a great track record. Last year, Deadspin collected a few notable failures. The 2013 edition didn't go very well. The year before was pretty lame, too. You get the picture. 

This brave young man thought he would bring the crowd to its feet by dunking over an entire lineup of teenagers. He didn't come anywhere close to succeeding. 

Lance Stephenson thinks the makers of his bobblehead did a bad job​

It's frankly astonishing to see a guy overestimate his leaping ability so severely.
