Jeremy Evans dunked over a painting of himself dunking (Video)
Jeremy Evans got creative with his first dunk of the championship round of the Slam Dunk Contest Saturday in Houston.
The reigning Dunk Contest champion went completely meta; he dunked over a picture of himself doing the dunk he had just done. As if that sort of creativity wasn’t already enough — he had put himself on a poster, or painting if you will — he then autographed the work of art. Evans revealed after the contest that he spent a week and a half painting the painting. It will probably sell for thousands in some charity auction.
Here’s video of the dunk:
For comparison sake, here’s Evans dunking two balls over Kevin Hart to win last year’s dunk contest.
Despite his creativity and solid dunks, Evans was unable to repeat as champion. He finished second to Terrence Ross.
