2011 NBA Dunk Contest: JaVale McGee Dunks Two Balls On Two Hoops At 12 Feet

[J MCGEE NBA ALLSTAR DUNK CONTEST 2011 DOUBLE DUNK (via casual5500)]

This might have been one of the most absurd dunks I have ever seen. But the creativity of it and sheer athletic and physical tools necessary for this kind of dunk makes it one of the craziest of all time. JaVale McGee has redeemed himself in my eyes. It did take him a few tries, but this alone should have given him the crown as this year's best dunk and dunker in the NBA. JaVale McGee dunked two basketballs on TWO SEPARATE RIMS set at 12 feet. 

For those that aren't familiar with McGee's portfolio, a simple search on youtube.com will give you a sample of why he's one of the more intriguing players in the league for his height and athleticism, but also for his bonehead plays. But for one night, his absurdity on the offensive end actually was what catapulted him into the dunk contest finals with TNT commentators Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller, and guest commentator Dwight Howard on his jock. And myself included.
