Kenneth Faried May Dunk a Bowling Ball in the Dunk Contest

Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried isn’t favored to win this year’s NBA Dunk Contest, so perhaps he feels the need to create an edge for himself during the aerial showcase. Which might explain why he may or may not dunk a bowling ball. Yes, you read that correctly. Per the Denver Post: “It’s not really a big issue right now,’ Faried said. ‘I’m more worried about games than I am about dunks. That’s all I’m focused on. We’ve got these road games, that’s more important than my dunk contest. I want to win these road games, and I’ll get my focus on that when I get to All-Star.’ However, there has been talk he was planning a bowling ball dunk of some sort. Faried acknowledged that, but said ‘I thought about that, but I haven’t practiced it or anything. I really don’t know if I’m going to do it or not. I don’t want to end up injured from a dunk contest.’”

    I predict shards of bowling ball in people’s eyes.

  • HS

    LOL what if he dunked it and it hit his head?!?!?

  • Dutch Rich

    Would be dope if he gets Dre to throw him the 2 handed lob, like a Rick Berry free-throw.

  • The Real Andre Miller

    throw it off the backboard…

    Bledsoe’s gonna some cereal in the “bowling bowl”. ;-)

    That’s a pretty lame idea. A good prop should make the dunk LOOK more difficult. He’s gonna get a heavy bowling bowl ball and do a dunk that’s incredibly difficult but looks completely below average. That’s the problem with some of these props guys use. Make your dunks LOOK difficult, don’t make simple dunks harder than they need to be. I don’t care if they’re wearing a 100 lbs weighted vest, a one handed dunk off 1 foot 3 feet from the basket is an in-game dunk. It might be way more difficult for the dunker, but for the viewer it’s a simple dunk that they can probably see at a local hs bball game.

    If he goes thru with this- i m gonna be the first to upload the video to epic fail.com
    This just spells “hole in floor”.
    i can imagine the game being called off because this numnut decides to dunk a bowling ball.

    Seriously! No more stupid props. The Google glasses stunt last year was too much!

  • Damack

    Is there am editor in the house? How did ‘bowling bowl’ make it past even one set of eyes?

  • bike

    Word has it he’s going to dribble it full court too.

  • Hingle McCringleberry

    He should dunk a rock the size of a bowling ball with a bone in his nose. Then after he should drag a cheerleader off the floor by her hair.

    A windmill with the bowling ball would be dope either on his own or by oop. He needs to grip it they can be slick. And if he puts a mat under the rim the floor will be cool. Im concerned about a rotator cuff injury though if he does that

    If you’re going to make fun of a grammar mistake, please do not make any yourself. Sincerely, Fruitman.

    What do you live in a cartoon? Bowling lanes are made of wood, people throw the ball down the lane all the time, never seen one put a hole in the floor. Secondly the dunk contest and all other challenges happen the day before the game, ample time to replace a portion of the floor; if the wile coyote has an anvil dropped on his head.

    That was part of the joke. Plus, there was the wink. We need a sarcasm font.
