I’m not certain this will come in handy, but it’s impressive

by Micah Hart

Remember a few years back when a big ruckus was created because Kevin Durant couldn’t bench press 185 pounds? So this is sort of the opposite of that — its video of 2011 Draft prospect Tristan Thompson dunking the ball 100 straight times in one sitting in a workout for the Charlotte Bobcats:

I don’t know how helpful a skill this is for Thompson (also a University of Texas product — Hook ‘em!), as it’s rare you get the opportunity in a game to dunk more than, you know, once in a row, let alone 100. Still pretty cool though.

    Wow….I don’t know what this proves but nonetheless it was very impressive. I’m a 6’5 small forward/power forward at a D2 school and I find it hard to dunk 15-20 times in a row. Nicely down Tristan T( my fellow Canadian).

    If anything, it shows that the kid has endurance and heart. I applaud that. On top of that it’s also discipline, a trait not common with a lot of youngsters. This kid has a bright future ahead of him. It’s only a matter now if he can keep it up and continue to conquer new challenges one dunk at a time.

    The Superman Drill. Pre-draft, Shane Battier famously defeated dunk champion Jason Richardson 70 to 63 in consecutive dunks – but 100!!!! This is really insane.
