Dunker Hilariously Misses Hoop During Attempted Slam

Power. Creativity. Accuracy.

Satisfy all three, and you have a tremendous, rim-rattling, crowd-astonishing, bench-rousing dunk.

Two out of three isn't bad, though, right?

If it looks anything like the attempted jam above, it's very bad.

Poor No. 23 sprinted, elevated, turned...and found the basket to be far from his reach.

So he chucked the ball in the rim's general direction, hoping if he at least succeeded in putting the ball through the hoop, he could save face.

No luck. For the second time in the short sequence, aim was his shortcoming.

To make matters worse, he didn't even stick the landing.

Lesson learned: Accuracy is not to be underestimated.
