This year's edition of the rim-rattling event had the likes of Calvin Abueva, Japeth Aguilar, Chris Ellis, and Cliff Hodge showcasing the moves that make us wish we're a foot taller and had toned, powerful legs. You've got players jumping over other players, windmills, nasty tomahawks, and the almost-gasgas-but-still-awesome 360-degree dunks.
In the end though, five-foot-nine guard Melton of the San Mig Coffee Mixers and the Meralco Bolts' guard/forward Guevarra soared higher (read: got better scores) than the rest of the slam-dunking pack.
But it's not a one-man or two-man show. Every player brought the goods in the epic dunk-off—one of the better ones we've seen from the local pro league in recent years. And the hoop nut in us couldn't get enough! The result? We decided to come up with "sequenced" action shots to give you all an idea of how hard and awesome each dunk was and to further drive home the point that, yes, Pinoys can sky!
Many hate his on-court antics, but The Beast's one-handed 360-degree-from-behind-the-backboard earned a ton of applause from the appreciative crowd. Angas, sir!
We still remember him "posterizing" Kevin Durant, and this reverse-360-degree-windmill is another proof that Japeth is an athletic freak.
This semi-windmill switcheroo from Ellis is damn hard! Stretch kung stretch!
Papa Rey pulled this nasty 360-degree one-hander like it was nothing. We almost became Meralco Bolts fans because of it.
