Wow.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Dennis Smith didn’t win the dunk contest on Saturday night, but he did have the best dunk in the entire competition. Take a second a process the difficulty involved here:

The through-the-legs dunk has been a staple for a long time now, but DSJ did it backwards, pulling a reverse 180, and he switched hands, and still made it work. There was not a more creative dunk during the competition on Saturday night, nor was there a more impressive athletic display. Holy hell how do you even do this? My goodness.
