Media members attempting trampoline dunks

By Dan Steinberg


One of the most depressing D.C. sports clips I've seen in recent weeks came last week, when Comcast SportsNet's Chris Miller asked JaVale McGee what it would mean to the Wizards organization if he could win the NBA's slam dunk competition. That's just pure sadness in 17 words.

But at least McGee in the dunk contest, plus John Wall in the all-star game's skills contest, were reason enough for the Wizards to invite media members to leap off a trampoline. I didn't participate, but such notables as Ivan Carter, Miller, Dan Hellie and Big Tigger did. There isn't much that's more fun than watching Ivan Carter faceplant off a trampoline.

i like how Dan is always crackin' on folks, but when he has a chance to participate, he backs out like a weasel.

"There isn't much that's more fun than watching Ivan Carter faceplant off a trampoline."

Agreed.

Is that Malitz in the second video?

Missed opportunity, Dan. You should have done your own spin on JaVale's dunk -- put a piece of cheese in the net, and then take a bite out of it as you dunk.

A tale of two Barnos: Elation on Ivan's faceplant, sad on his completed dunk.

I missed that, was too busy laughing at the faceplant.
