The season is only weeks old, and we have our first truly incredible slam of the season. When Decatur (Ga.) Columbia High forwards Jhaustin Thomas and Chris Horton both went up for a put-back dunk, they both arrived at the ball and rim at approximately the same time.
What happened next was fantastic news for team video compilers and horrible news for Druid Hills (Ga.) High officials, who were hosting Columbia High; the ball went through the rim, and that was the last thing the rim ever did.
As you can see above, Thomas and Horton's rare double-slam caused a general sense of discombobulated, celebratory commotion. Columbia is the defending state champion, and clearly Thomas and Horton can provide the heft to defend its state crown.
Both forwards have also achieved a level of athletic fame on their own. Thomas is much more known for his exploits in football, where the defensive end prospect landed a scholarship to South Carolina. Horton plans to play college basketball at Austin Peay University.
Now, if early interest is any indication, they're both likely going to be known for a moment of serendipitous, stupendous slamming power.
