Professional dunker makes an unbelievable dunk, goes viral

To be fair, the best dunk of 2015 does belong to a professional dunker. Yes, you heard that right: professional dunkers exist (turns out dunking involves more than just Oreos and a glass of milk).

A 67-second video that has been viewed more than 5.3 million times on YouTube, shows Canadian Jordon Kilganon, 23 (named after the other Jordan), holding a basketball between his right hand and forearm before jumping to the loop in a 1.07m vertical leap.

He spins counter-clockwise, using his right hand to toss the ball clockwise behind his back. He then dunks the ball into the hoop, but not before allowing it to float above the rim of the hoop. 

The dunk, which has since been named by Kilganon as the 'Lost and Found', was made in a gym in Sudbury, which is located in Ontario, Canada.

Acoording to The New York Times, the video has been rapturously received by the National Basketball Association (NBA) and sports community at-large.

Indeed, NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal posted the video on his Facebook page, asking for Kilganon to be included in this year's NBA slam dunk contest.


WOAH that's a new one!!! Put this kid in the next nba dunk contest!

Considered by most experts to be relatively new to the sport, Kilganon has been hailed as an exciting addition to the professional dunking community.

"I have this crazy obsession for dunking, just the way dunking feels," he told The New York Times.
