What's better than one impressive dunk from a top recruit? Two impressive dunks from top recruits, on opposing teams, on back-to-back possessions!
Luckily for all of us, that's precisely what we got last week in New York, where Sir'Dominic Pointer, one of the top recruits in the Class of 2011 who stars for Quality Education (N.Y.) Academy, threw down a pretty unbelievable reverse tip dunk in the middle of a gaggle of teammates around the rim, only to be arguably one-upped by Class of 2012 national star Andre Drummond, who dunked directly over a Quality Education foe on the resulting break.
It's hard to tell which of the two dunks above is more impressive. The level of difficulty on Pointer's tip drill dunk is nearly off the charts. After all, it's almost impossible to exert any body control when a player is elevating backwards, let alone have enough body control to dunk a basketball which is physically behind a player's head.
Yet, if Drummond's dunk was less impressive, it was only slightly so. The St. Thomas More star -- currently the top-ranked recruit in the entire class of 2012 -- elevated directly over a defender to throw down a nasty slam. It's hard to argue with those results, either.
Which would you take? Quite frankly, if we could pull off either of those feats, we would probably be out on a blacktop somewhere refining our balling skills "White Men Can't Jump" style to try and earn a living hustling for cash. Since we can't, we're going to edge toward Sir'Dominic, if only because he also happens to sport one of the best names in organized sports. That is undebatable.
