Let us re-introduce you to Henry Bekkering. "...Most have seen the original...but if you don't know, now you know." (video with sound. sound not necessary to appreciate 40 inch vertical leaps and a two-footed leap from the foul line) [first post]

Wow I'm surprised nobody complained that this should be on sportsfilter, or that your first post sucks because it's just some sports video, etc etc...

I liked it... nice vid.. I have not heard of this guy before as I've kinda lost interest in basketball save for my Illini...

Who's he play for? yeah, lame question I know...

Also, that carter video - holy crap.. he jacks that guy in the face with an elbow.. great jumping ability, but not a great play in my book.

That was quite a display of athletic ability, but I have said it before, (not on MetaFilter, though, or SportsFilter either for that matter)--The game of basketball has not "developed" along with the skills of the humans who play it.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

So who is that guy? Is he really (dare I say it) Canadian?
