Chase Budinger dunks over Yao Ming (well, a cut out of him)

Feb 22, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

Clearly this is a staged video, with the Rockets’ Chandler Parsons “talking to the media” while Chase Budinger just happens to do a dunk over a cardboard cutout of Yao Ming in the background. Coincidentally.

Still, pretty cool. And this is why I hold out some hope for this year’s All-Star Dunk Contest — Budinger is very athletic and can throw it down. Just-added Jeremy Evans is a human pogo stick. Paul George is the favorite and threw down a big dunk in-game last night. There may not be star power but there is potential with this group. We’ll see what comes of it Saturday night.

Hat tip to Eye on Basketball for the video.

    Sorry, but that video was lame as hell. Couldn’t even see the dunk over the reporter’s heads.

    He obviously just dunked next to the cutout….not over it. Lame.
