We really don’t know what to make of this video. The description by Jaren Allen, who uploaded the video to YouTube, says that his cousin, Cole, is a Mormon missionary in Dallas and had a desire to hook up with a couple of brothers on an outdoor court.
“Cole” apparently played on a state championship basketball team. “Cole” apparently has a 40-inch vertical. “Cole,” according to Jaren, can dunk on a regulation hoop.
So why are we skeptical? Maybe it’s:
- The strategically placed camera.
- The lower-than-regulation hoop. (Keeping it one hundred, as a grown man I’m not playing on 9-foot rims. And these rims seem to be about 9-feet based on the dunk at 33 seconds where “Cole” has almost zero lift).
- There’s no more info on Cole: We don’t know his last name, we don’t know the school where he won his state championship.
- None of the brothers — after his dunk-fest — knocked him on his ass.
Those are just our thoughts. You be the judge.
