Is Kenny Dobbs Even Human? One Ponytailed Young Man Performs Several Never-before-Seen Dunks

Is Kenny Dobbs Even Human?  One Ponytailed Young Man Performs Several Never-before-Seen DunksNot that I like to judge folks on appearances, but if you were to send me into a gym and tell me that therein was one of the nicest dunkers I’d ever seen, the last person I’d pick out would be the slight, pencil-bearded ponytail in the washed-out wifebeater.  That, oddly, serves as a first-glance description of Kenny Dobbs, father of some of the finest above-the-rim efforts ever committed to camera. 

Don’t believe me?  Just check out the clip below for proof.  With effortless hops and unusual aerial agility, Dobbs puts on a dunk masterclass that immediately marks him out as one of the meanest men above the rim on this whole green globe.  I won’t spoil the surprise by describing the dunks, but let’s just say that he channels Vince Carter, Jason Richardson and Andre Iguodala in his performance, often all in the same dunk.

Oh, and as a bonus, you also get to see one of the most comically undervalued novelty-sized cheques in history.  This may be the first time that the material and work going into the manufacture of the cheque are worth more than the sum printed on it.
