Pepperdine's Keion Bell, ladies and gentlemen:
It would be possible to keep posting Midnight Madness videos for the rest of the week. There are enough dunk contests around the country, enough goofy player introduction videos, to last until the season starts. But since I'm not sure we're going to see a better dunk than Mr. Bell's -- in which he flew over five of his teammates before the slam -- I think we can rest. We've peaked.
For what it's worth, reader Jeff makes it seem as though Mr. Bell had himself quite a dunk contest: "This is where he dunks over 5 teammates. His first dunk was an off-the-shot-clock windmill dunk. His second dunk went between the legs. This was his winning dunk." Nor is this the first time Keion has done something semi-awesome. Observe his "Batman" dunk at Kobe Bryant Camp:
Well played, Keion. I always liked Batman better than Superman, anyway.
