Video: 5-8 Air Nigeria

5-8 with a 45′ vertical? Yeah right.

Check out Air Nigeria, one of the newest members of the dunking scene. The Denver native has a 45-inch vertical which is among the highest in the world. Vote for him at NBA.com/dunk once voting opens in August.

    He looks a bit taller than 5-8. And I expected him to be a native of Nigeria and not Denver, but whatever. That last dunk over the ball rack was EASILY more impressive/higher than Blake’s car dunk, nevermind the width of the car.

    Ahh, thanks for the clarification. The “Denver native” part confused me.
