Even with the amazing dunks coming out of the Slam Dunk Contest held annually during All-Star weekend, some of the most creative and absolutely insane dunks are popping up all over the Internet.
So even though the contest in February gets all the publicity, you won't believe the kind of things that are going on outside of that event. But with guys like Andrew Wiggins joining the league soon, the bar is only going to keep getting raised.
At a Jordan Brand event outside the Nike store in Santa Monica Place, 5'11'' Haneef Munir, aka "Young Hollywood," takes a basketball out of Blake Griffin's hand, puts it through his legs and slams it home.
This is a ridiculous dunk for any NBA player, but the fact that Young Hollywood is less than six feet tall is pretty remarkable.

In case you haven't been keeping tabs on college basketball recruiting, meet Andrew Wiggins—potential one-and-done forward for the Kansas Jayhawks.
When Wiggins isn't busy dreaming of NBA rosters to join, he's busy dominating the McDonald's All-American Dunk Contest.
Don't worry. You'll see the future Jayhawk in the NBA very shortly.
In a competition of five amateur dunkers before this year's ESPY Awards, 5'5" Porter Maberry stole the show by dunking over an enormous mascot.
Maberry is allegedly the shortest professional dunker in the world, and the video titled "What's Gravity?" proves exactly why he does this for a living.
Oakland native Michael Purdie dominated the Red Bull Dunk Contest with a ridiculous 360-degree windmill from the baseline (1:40 mark).
Purdie's unique dunking style brought 10,000 Oakland residents to Moss Park for the King of the Rock qualifier.
Michael Stewart, aka "Airdogg," takes flight in the Long Beach State basketball gym in front of NBA talent DeMar DeRozan (the guy in the white appropriately going nuts).
Airdogg is best known for the backboard-shattering dunk that landed him more than 20 national commercial spots.
Ohio native Zach Jones, aka "Jonesy," has some of the most ridiculous hops in the country.
At the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest in the nation's capital, Jonesy threw down this absurd one-handed windmill over his head (0:35 mark) and stole the show in D.C.
His other YouTube clips are absolutely insane.
Team Flight Brothers' own Werm showed up at a dunk contest in the Bahamas with a series of dunks that sent the crowd into a frenzy.
Check out the through-the-legs dunk Werm slams over two people at the 2:17 mark.
Here is a dunk you will probably never see in the NBA.
Justin Darlington, aka "Jus Fly," does a cartwheel through the paint and then takes the ball through his legs to slam it.
Jus Fly pulled off this extremely creative and athletic dunk in the Nike Dunk Contest in Los Angeles.
Few 5'9'' people on the planet can dunk a basketball. And few people have the hang time to do a 720-degree rotation on the same jump.
Team Flight Brothers dunker T-Dub pulled off both athletic feats in the same dunk in the 2010 Nike 3-on-3 Slam Dunk Contest that was dubbed the "greatest dunk contest ever" by The Hoop Doctors.
Les Schwab Tires sponsored an invitational dunk contest that future Arizona Wildcat Aaron Gordon absolutely dominated.
The AG show starts at about the 0:35 mark of this video, but the dunk to see is his signature "Double-Double," which he shows off at 0:46.
Gordon hails from California, where In-N-Out Burger restaurants are as common as palm trees, and he is on the fast track to bring this signature dunk to the NBA.
