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.
Short shorts and a vest…could be a thing 🤣

Why cant girls dunk ?
"Dunked on the Nazis" is one hell of an epitaph
This is not what I was looking for.
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!!!!!!!!!!
Love the vid
Remember to pray btw
That hoop that u have in the video is the one I have in my back yard lol
Basketball without dunks is UFC with no contact.
Wonder how old that guy would be now
its funny that Jay Berwanger later regretted passing up the chance to play in the NFL
