Some boys dream of playing in the NBA. Not Jordan Kilganon. All young Jordan ever wanted to do was dunk a basketball. Although he played a number of sports in high school – basketball, track, volleyball and baseball – Kilganon became obsessed with the art of the slam dunk. As he once told Rolling Stone, “I was like, ‘Why not take this desire to be the best and focus on what I like the most, which is dunking?’”
Today, the 6-1, 28-year-old Ontario native with the 50-inch vertical leap is making a name for himself as perhaps the world’s most accomplished professional dunker. Here’s YouTube video collecting all of his best dunks. Some of his aerial acrobatics must be seen to be believed. Enjoy!
