We haven’t paid a lot of attention to FIBA’s 3-on-3 championships — you know, that sport FIBA is pushing for the Olympics — because, well, it’s 3-on-3. Fun to play in pickup, not an Olympic event.
But the dunk contest they had, pretty impressive. Worth watching. By the way, the American you see is Adetayo Adesanya, who was an All-American high jumper at Purdue.
