Washington, D.C.- February 12th, 2010 - Taurian Fontenette, Mr. 720, aka The Air Up There our very own Street Basketball Association Legend took to the air Friday night in Dallas, TX., delivering a gravity defying, logic defying, awe inspiring, 360 degree reverse jam, that had enthusiastic fans jumping to their feet, and NBA stars such as LeBron James, running off the court in amazement.
Even NBA Legend and TNT analyst Kenny Smith stated what the SBA has been saying for years, that Mr. 720/The Air Up There would hands down without a doubt win the NBA Slam Dunk Competition if they allowed him to compete.
His feat clinched him the title of Sprite’s NBA Slam Dunk Showdown competition for amateurs as well as $10,000.00 payday. Later tonight, the NBA’s elite will compete for the title of NBA Slam Dunk Champion as part of the 2010 NBA All Star Weekend.
Here at the SBA, we’re not sure about the amateur ranking, but we are confident that Mr. 720/Air Up There is undisputedly THE BEST DUNKER IN THE WORLD! During the SBA’s recent “Legends” tour in Europe, which featured NBA and SBA All Stars such as Dennis Rodman, Tim Hardaway, Mugsy Bougues, Hot Sauce, Pat Da-Roc, and many others, Mr. 720 proved time and time again why he is the slam dunk king of the world.
As the leading body in the street ball industry, the Street Basketball Association (SBA) has continuously cultivated and spotlighted extraordinary talent such as Mr. 720 on our roster. Our global branding strategy, team of professional and streetball champions, and visionary management is a slam dunk all of its own!
