Last night, one lucky Memphis fan got the chance to dunk off of a trampoline. He managed the dunk itself, but what followed was yet another reminder of the perils of using springy devices to propel ourselves skyward. [NBA.com]
UPDATE: An anonymous arena industry insider sheds some light on the identity of the dunker. He forwards an email that he says is from a FedEx Forum higher-up:
He's a doctor, has at least 2, but I think 4 floor seats and comes to every game…good dude, but obviously not ready to play in the NBA.
The source adds:
Turns out this guy is a season ticket holder who bought his way onto the court; serves him right.
