Have You Seen The Jacob Tucker Dunk Video!?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Have you seen the Jacob Tucker Dunk Video? If you haven't, then you really need to. Jacob Tucker is a shooting guard that plays for Illinois College, a division three program in Jacksonville, Ill. He thought he should be able to compete in the NCAA Division 1 dunk contest, so he decided to make a you tube video of some of his dunks so people could see his skills. This kid has the sickest hops ever. He claims he has a 51 inch vertical, and after seeing this video, I believe every inch of that claim. This dude repeatedly wows you with his amazing vertical leap, as he jumps over people with ease, dunks from behind the backboard, and the best one all, the incredible 360 between the legs dunk. No joke. This kid does all these dunks with ease. Did I mention he is a 5'11" white boy. Not even lying. The Jacob Tucker dunk video really puts a damper on the term white men can't jump, because not only can this kid dunk, he can dunk with ease, and if allowed in the NCAA Division 1 dunk contest, its over. Watching the Jacob Tucker dunk video got me thinking about some of the greatest dunks I have ever witnessed, and who are some of the greatest dunkers of all time. Here is a quick list of my top three greatest dunks ever, dunker included.

Vince Carter-Olympics. When Vince Carter was driving to the hoop during an Olympic basketball game, a seven foot defender slide over and got in Vince Carters way as he was about to go in for an easy dunk. Instead of Vince pulling up for a jump shot or passing the ball out to a teammate, he seemingly took off in flight, and jumped right over the seven foot defender. I repeat, seven foot defender. That dunk was incredible!

Michael Jordan- Cradle Dunk. When Michael Jordan took off for one of his dunk attempts during a classic 1980's dunk contest, and had the ball cradled in his hand, then twisted and turned in the air and threw it down with emphasis was, it was a spectacular scene. Watching the classic cradle dunk in slow motion is a work of art. A picture perfect dunk with style and finesse. Awesome!

Chris Webber over Charles Barkley. Watching a young Chris Webber run the floor like a point guard, take the ball behind his back and then dunk right in the face Sir Charles is, to this day, one of the my favorite NBA plays of all time. There was flash, there was style, and there was Charles Barkley getting embarrassed. Classic!

So there you have it. My list of the three greatest dunks of all-time, in no particular order. Did I get you in the mood to see some highlight dunks? If I did, you need to go check out the Jacob Tucker Dunk Video now. Check out the Jacob Tucker Dunk Video on you tube or just google it as Jacob Tucker Dunk Video. You won't be disappointed.
