This dunk you’re about to see might seem like your typical nice dunk video that goes viral on Twitter. But there’s so much more to this one.
Well, there isn’t THAT much more to it. But it is quite entertaining to watch a 5-foot-11 player get so far above the rim and watch the other players on the floor lose their damn minds.
Just take a look (and make sure to keep an eye on No. 32):

For context’s sake, this dunk came from Derek Harper, a 5-foot-11 guard for Division II Clark Atlanta University.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about this video. First of all, that’s a hell of a dunk from the guard. You might expect that if Harper has open space, but not with that crowd around him.
Then, there’s the reaction. While you see the typical bench stand up and freak out, No. 32 for Clark Atlanta might need to be considered for an Oscar. He hit the deck in perfect fashion and even held his pose for seconds after the fact. Unbelievable! Dick Vitale might call him a primetime actor or PTAor.
While some dunk videos might get old, plays like this are an easy way to get excited. Plus, how can you not smile when you see all of the teammates completely lose it. Props to them for focusing and getting back to the game.
