  1. So no actual film of Fortenberry? What a stupid video!

  2. Who else heard their phone ringing?

  3. I always enjoy these videos despite their best efforts to get me not to. I have no idea why all the SB Nation videos have to be so far up their own asses.

  4. When were playing first allowed to touch the basketball rim during play?

  5. Joe Fortenberry's gold medal is featured on an episode of "Antiques Roadshow".

  6. 3:48 yet less than 100 years later, Canada would become NBA Champions

    Edit: Fixed the spelling lol

  7. "where arms and legs give birth to basketball players"

  8. I'd like this host to teach me how he dunks.

  9. Michael Jordan fans are the worst NBA fans then says:

  13. Ahahahah you guys are f**king genius 🤣🤣

  14. Now I wanna see Joe Fortenberry highlights

  15. I was sold at “boom Shaka Laka”🤣@end of vid,15-30secs before

  16. "Dunked on the Nazis" is one hell of an epitaph

  17. Jesus our God died on the cross for all our sins and rose from the dead three days later. If you acknowledge to God that your are a sinner, have a godly repentance of all your sins to God (but don’t just say I wanna change my sinful ways and then do nothing about it, that’s called playing the hypocrite), and if you believe in and trust in God, then God will save you from hell and give you the gift of eternal life with Him! And make sure to continuously live for and love God more than anyone or anything your entire life! God DOES NOT hate you,GOD LOVES YOU and wants to SAVE YOU!!! And don’t wait to accept God either because you can die tomorrow, tonight in your sleep, or even in the next hour! And once you died and you haven’t been living for God, it’ll be too late. God loves you and He is always waiting for you to come to Him!!!!!!!!!!

  18. That hoop that u have in the video is the one I have in my back yard lol

  19. Basketball without dunks is UFC with no contact.

  20. its funny that Jay Berwanger later regretted passing up the chance to play in the NFL
