Dime Exclusive: Josh Can’t Dunk

Last week, we told you that despite not initially being chosen for All-Star Saturday Night’s dunk contest, Josh McRoberts wanted a chance to change the committee’s mind. So, along with Pacers teammate Brandon Rush, J-Mac created his own short remix of White Men Can’t Jump to help his campaign efforts. Well, the goods have finally arrived, but the wait on any decision change from the League for McRoberts has only just begun. Check out the final result, “Josh Can’t Dunk,” a product even Billy Hoyle would be proud of.

Now it’s in your collective hands to get McRoberts to L.A. for All-Star Saturday Night – his headquarters have been setup over at joshcantdunk.com – so spread the news. If this is what the kid can come up with in his spare time to get into the dunk contest, think of what he could create if given the chance to actually compete. It’s funny that McRoberts is trying to hustle his way in, and in doing so, is playing a character that essentially depends on the hustle to survive. It’s also dope that he wants to take on everyone’s favorite poster maker Blake Griffin on BG’s home court. Big ups big fella for taking the initiative to make yourself heard.

What do you think? Should the NBA put Josh McRoberts into the dunk contest?

    I’ve seen all his dunk highlights and I don’t think the dude can dunk. I bet he would be more exciting then Brown was last year though.

    I don’t think he’ll win but he can get up. I remember seeing him in the McDonald’s All-American Dunk Contest. He wasn’t bad at all. He didn’t have a shot at winning since LeBron-mania was in full swing and the entire McDonald’s event was geared towards him that year. Hell, Shannon Brown did a one-legged 360 from the free-throw and didn’t win because of LeBron.

    Blake Griffin is hands-down the best power-forward in the NBA. A redhead in the NBA. One is almost inclined to feel bad. (See: Brian Scalabrine) However, Griffin attacks the rim with such ferocity and reckless abandon that he has become recognized as a bully on the court. His highlights are so jaw dropping that opposing arenas are left with two options in his wake: deafening silence or raucous praise.
