Luigi Datome — who spent part of three seasons in the NBA and is now playing for a Turkish team, Fenerbahçe, in the Euroleague — apparently has developed a reputation with regard to his slam dunk prowess.
Or lack thereof.
“You don’t think of him as a flying dunker,” an announcer said, while broadcasting a recent game.
And that reputation is likely to stay with Datome for a little while after the comically bad try you can see above.
Datome sprinted down the baseline with a left-hand dribble. Then, he switched to his right as he went up for a dunk attempt.
But he was way, way, way off. The ball crashed into the side of the backboard, which caused Datome to hit the deck.
Nope… definitely not a flying dunker.
