We can’t stop watching this high-school kid’s insane dunk

The stuff that college scholarships are made of.

High school athletics provide fascinating case studies in rapidly emerging inequalities of talent and physical advantage, which is to say: HOLY SHIT WOULD YOU LOOK AT THIS DUNK.

Can we get that slowed down like the ESPN highlight it deserves to be? Great, thanks.

Call it a hunch, but I’m fairly sure that kid will look back on this feat with less embarrassment than I do my 10th-grade performance in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
