Brainstorming Ways That Gerald Can Walk Away With The Slam Dunk Trophy
It’s just been reported that Spud Webb will participate as a judge in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday, Feb 13th. Webb is known to be quite friendly with reigning champ, and contestant Nate Robinson. In order to unseat Nate, Gerald Wallace is going to have to pull out some pretty remarkable dunks.
UPDATE: It looks like Flip Murray is going to Dallas to help Gerald with the Dunk Contest. It’s going to be interesting to see what they pull off.
Here are a few of our initial ideas on what Crash might do when given the opportunity to showcase what he’s got. Of course, every great dunk gets a sweet name. Let us know if you have any other dunk ideas in mind.
DUNK #1. “The Dallas State Fair”
It’s pretty simple – Gerald will bring out “Big Tex” from the State Fair of Texas, and dunk over him, clearing his cowboy hat.
DUNK #2. “First In Flight”
In this one, Gerald would pull out his mouth-piece and put a healthy serving of NC BBQ inside. Then as he runs from half-court , he would shake a full bottle of Texas Pete sauce all over the BBQ and put the mouthpiece in as he leaps from the foul-line. After slamming the ball through the rim, the judges would realize that a miniature model ship had been placed inside the Texas Pete bottle.
DUNK #3. “Pistolas”
For this dunk, Crash will hold a Texas beer can in each hand ( Shiner & Lone Star). Stephen Jackson will lob the ball toward the goal, while Gerald pounds the beers and twirls the bottles into holsters on each hip as he leaps for a reverse jam. As he lands back onto the court, he’ll have already pulled the beers back out of the holsters in time to stop Stephen Jackson from punching a fan in the second row.
DUNK #4. “T. Boone Pickens Windmill Jam”
Gerald nearly gave this away during a game against the Kings earlier this season, but this dunk will be a windmill jam that creates such a furious gust that it will power the entire arena – yes the turbo-huge Texas Stadium.
DUNK #5. “Texas Two-Step”
This is one that I’m certain we’ll see. To start, Gerald will lead a group of line-dancers in a fast-paced routine, but eventually the line stands side-by-side from the baseline to the top of the key. With spurs on his heels, Crash will then leap over all of the line dancers for the slam. The NBA will finally allow spurs after seeing this display.
