Apparently, White Men Can Jump Just Fine
Contrary to the stories told to us by Sidney Deane and Billy Hoyle, some white kids can indeed jump. Well, if their names are Joe Alexander, I guess. It’s not often we find a 6-8 white guy with a 40-inch vertical. But when we do, it can lead to thunderous things. Like so:
Tom Chambers anyone? Of course, Alexander didn’t jump over and through anyone there but the fact he was almost head-high to the rim did remind me of Chambers destroying Marc Jackson.
I would say something like, “ain’t dunking a wonderful thing,” but I’ve never known the joy — unless we are talking 8-foot rims.
