Sir Isaac White is a name some of you may have heard if you’ve followed the Sprite Showdown dunk exhibitions around the country or seen some of his outrageous dunks on YouTube.
The 5'10" throwdown artist showed up at the fourth annual Houston Rockets Blacktop Battle Dunk Contest and absolutely wowed the hundreds in attendance who gathered at a small court located outside the Toyota Center.
After watching a few no-name competitors miss mildly challenging dunks or a simple jam, Sir Isaac stepped up and put on a clinic.
With Rockets players Patrick Beverley and Thomas Robinson judging, the diminutive high-flyer slammed down a between-the-legs windmill off a self-oop, a ridiculous rim-rattling tomahawk, some sort of crazy dunk that involved Sir Isaac jumping over a man, grabbing the rock and flushing it with two hands, a flying windmill tomahawk hybrid over a standing man and various other insane, acrobatic jams.
The crowd went absolutely wild after every single one of these impressive feats, forcing security to hold them back on numerous occasions. It’s impossible to blame them for getting rowdy after witnessing Sir Isaac do aerial stunts that seem inhuman with a basketball in his hands.
For his efforts, Isaac won the fourth straight trophy in this event, keeping his name in the record books as the sole champion.
It’s hard to see anyone taking the mantle away from Sir Isaac White anytime soon, as his combination of power, leaping ability and creativity makes him one of the best dunkers of our time.
