Clip Of The Day: Brent “Thunder” Petway Can Dunk Better Than You

Although Brent Petway isn’t a household name, you’ve probably seen his highlights before. After a state title at Griffin (Ga.) High School and four years at the University of Michigan, the 6-8 dunking phenom was a second-place finisher in the 2007 college slam dunk contest before playing two seasons in the D-League with the Idaho Stampede. In 2008, he became the D-League slam dunk champ, and after a year in Greece, he assumed the name Thunder Petway and took his talents to the Harlem Globetrotters. Thankfully, the 42-inch vertical is still intact.

    It’s almost sad that dunks like this barely even get a rise out of me anymore, they have become second nature by so many players.

    Also, it seemed to be lacking a little flair. Guys need to take note from Carter. Anyone can do a windmill or between the legs, but the way he does it, with his power and extension just blows anyone else out of the water.

    Don’t get me wrong, it was a great dunk…just sayin.
