Michael Jordan

A friend told me that Michael Jordan once slam dunked the hoop from the 3 point line. A while ago a person linked a picture to Michael Jordan jumping extremely high, looks like it could be from the 3 point line.

Can someone confirm if its true and maybe link me to a video clip?

No one has ever dunked from the 3-point line. The foul line is possible, but from behind the arc is just too far.

Yeah, it was the foul line. At a dunk contest. He was doin a throwback dunk, as Magic Johnson did it two years prior in 83.

No, Magic did not dunk from the free throw line. Julius Erving came CLOSE but his famous dunk was baseline and in a game. Jordan made the freethrow line a reality. After him about 5-6 other guys have done it (including a white guy).

Yeah I meant Julius, not Johnson. My b.

Speakin of dunk contests, you guys ever heard of Spud Webb? Really short guy, could hurdle a VW Bug. I think he won 2 contests.

Here's to you MJ *salutes His Airness*

I hope that his son will be able to become half the player he was. His son is playing high school ball now and is said to be pretty good. Of course if you dad is one of the best NBA players of all time you have a pretty good coach.

Yeah, Vince Carter dunked literally over the head of 7'2" Frederick Weis of France. Google the video, it is awesome.

The most impressive thing was that it was during an actual game. In other words, unrehearsed and unpracticed.

Clyde "The Glide" Drextler has dunked from a little past the foul line (behind it, that is)...i saw it in a video (NBA superstars 2 i believe)

No, watch the video. Breakaway dunk, vince charges at the rim and jumps. At first the frenchie tries to slide under him and take a blocking foul (more like a cheapass undercut, but meh). When he realizes he is about to get the nuts to the face treatment, he tries to turn his head and vince clears him. Completely insane.
