Video: Sonny Weems with an impressive dunk contest… in Lithuania

Mar 5, 2012, 11:53 PM EDT

You remember Sonny Weems, right? Spent the couple seasons before this in Toronto, played for Denver before that. Like a lot of guys on the NBA fringe, he had a hard decision to make during the lockout and he decided to get paid and signed to play in Lithuania.

Where he was part of their All-Star festivities and won the dunk contest with a performance that likely would have won him the NBA dunk contest. If he comes back to the NBA next year, put this guy in it.

Thanks to Ball Don’t Lie for finding this, and for telling us that as the winner of the Most Impressive Player award during the games he won a refrigerator. Seriously.

    …dare I say that video was more exciting than any of the dunks at this years NBA All Star Dunk contest?

    The contest the NBA has is a NBA Prop contest. They need to get back to just dunking.
