I think he hits the backboard with his hip.

I have nothing here. Every time a player goes up on the rim is not a T in my book, even if it is sometimes exaggerated.

Peace

I agree. Exaggerated is a good word here, but the action is kind of in context to a follow through on the dunk itself, as opposed to a chin-up afterward.

Forget the T, did he travel on his way to the basket? I couldn't tell if he dribbled or not.

He did. It's tough to see it but you can hear the ball hit the court when he dribbles.

Wow....I don't think I've seen many chin-ups higher than that....he pulled up so far that his head was above the level of the rim.

That is a T just about any way you cut it.

I have a T, as well. It appears to me the divide here depends greatly upon what our respective superviors tell us.

Wow...that was pretty high. My first instinct is that I would have left it alone. It almost appears his momentum carried his head over the rim but I don't think that's possible. He doesn't appear to hang...lets go immediately. So fast...no real showmanship other than the dunk itself...play on...but I see the point of those that vote for T being served.
