Note: Fast forward to the 2:02 point of the above video to see Shaq’s award-winning dunks
Is Shaq Johnson the best dunker in the history of Georgia high school basketball? We debated that topic in a recent blog here.
Johnson, who just started his senior year at Milton High School, added to his legendary status by winning the Under Armour Dunk Contest at Venice Beach, Calif., on Friday.
The featured contestant was Derrick Williams, the No. 2 pick of the NBA Draft.
“Derrick Williams had no idea what he was getting into with Shaq there,” Milton coach David Boyd said with a laugh. “Derrick Williams didn’t even know who Shaq was. He does now.”
The rest of the field consisted of 24 high schoolers, including Johnson, who committed early to Auburn.
The 6-foot-4 Johnson won with a windmill dunk, a high-flying dunk that cleared 6-foot-9 Tony Parker of Miller Grove High School, and a circus dunk by going through his legs and jamming left-handed.
Whatever you see on the above video does not compare to the below video. That’s the one that stirred the debate about: Who is the best dunker in the history of Georgia high school basketball? We think it’s Shaq, although there are a lot of old-timers that keep bringing up the name of Darrin Hancock.
