It’s easy to assume that it would be hard to impress Zach LaVine in a dunk contest. The NBA’s reigning dunk champion has quite an arsenal at his disposal, such as the ability to toss it off the glass and dunk from the free-throw line, and whatever you call this (my goodness, man). But for Guy Dupuy, the amateur baller in the video above, it appears he was able to do just that.
The set-up has been done before. By placing a car beneath the basket, the object is to grab a lob from an assistant while leaping over it, maintaining your balance, and dunking the ball. One underrated key to this dunk is to stick the landing, because the last thing you’d want to do after jumping over a car is to run into the basket support and tear up your knee.
Dupuy had no trouble with the landing. But as an added wrinkle, he added a behind-the-back move while mid-air, as if the entire exercise wasn’t hard enough already.
