Kids used to grow up wishing to be the next great NBA player. After watching the likes of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James, we would be at any hoop we could find dreaming about making the last second shot to win Game 7 of the NBA Finals. 3, 2, 1…

Now, kids are growing up wanting to be the next great dunker. It’s insane. That is until you realize how much money some of these guys are making simply because they’re creative and can jump extremely high. The TNT Network hosts their “Dunk King” competition where the winner takes home a cool $100,000, and that’s just one of the hundreds of competitions across the world that are held every year. Add in endorsements and appearances and world class dunkers make a healthy living without every having to play in a game.

Jordan Kilganon is one of these world class dunkers, and he continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with the dunk. He recently unveiled his latest dunk, the “Upside Down,” on his Instagram. It’s definitely new, but we’re not so sure if it should qualify as an actual dunk. Take a look and make the final call for us!

New "Upside Down" Dunk!! @BounceKit #Inverted2HandScorpion #HoopMixTape #BounceKit Shout out to @ckilganon for the idea.

Also, he really needs to get better people in the gym with him selling his dunks… These white girls are terrible!
