The Best Dunk Ever Done In A High School Game

When I see a message on Twitter from my boy Nils Wagner at Hoopmixtape that claims to be video of the best dunk ever done in a high school game, it catches my attention. Why? Because I don’t know anyone that catches more prep hoops that him. Check out 6-2 Elijah Johnson from Cheyenne High School in Las Vegas pulling out all the stops at the Derby Classic in 2008. You may have seen him playing for Kansas this year…

    Better than any dunk in the 2010 slam dunk competition, but that’s not saying much.

    holy – that was a crazy dunk….

  • RC

    Ridiculous!!! best dunk I’ve seen from HS hands down. It’s like a video game dunk!

  • Strange

    All I could say was deeeeeyum…. One of those dunks that makes you look at it over and over again, like… Wait did he just do what I think he did???

  • M Intellect

    Best dunk I seen in a game full stop

  • dvs

    ^^ Yeah, i think the best in game dunk at any level.

  • Papa Smurf

    agreed. best game dunk, period.

  • ceasar paciotti

    i never take time to comment, as im too important and busy…but damn…damn..damn..thats was disgustingly sick. jumped off 2, between the legs, sick sick sick.

  • oo wee

    yea. pretty much.

  • otto

    Sick dunk. But wait, did he pull that with around 3 seconds left in the game (as observed from the scoreboard between the lower and upper bowl)? And was his team winning by 8 points? You can get jacked up clowning around like that at the end of a game. I hope he was not on the losing team… celebrating like that when you’re about to lose is not cool.

  • daghost

    that dunk was just ridiculous. best in game dunk period.

  • chris

    not better than VC’s at the olympics. flashier, but not more difficult.
    VC did it with a 7′ defender on him (who I guess you could consider an “olympian”)

    Just came in to say that.

  • bobby stew

    And he’s only 6’2. Wow!!!

  • Promoman

    That was insane

  • Gunner J. Matthews

    Impressive dunk, but I don’t know if you can say best in game dunk ever. I’d rather see any dunk on a defender, than one in which there isn’t a defender within half a court (with the game about to be done). It was essentially one of those layup line dunks…

    Impressive nonetheless, but lets not say it’s the best ‘in game’ dunk ever…

  • Dagger

    Best uncontested dunk I can remember seeing. Wow.

  • E$

    when the other team likes it, it’s official

  • Oh wow

    There is no debate here, best HS dunk of all time.

  • dh

    NOW why was THAT ONE dunk better than the WHOLE NBA All-Star Weekend Dunk copntest this year!?… SMH

  • http://www.getbuckets.anywhere.com Chicagorilla

    WOW! I didn’t think i would see anyone do it smoother than Air up There, but this kid is close. That was cleaaaaannnnnn! Put him in the Jordan Classic so he can do this again.

  • Geoff

    He is only 6″2?! That was the best in-game dunk…at ANY level.
